Deck Stab by Adrian Vega (Gimmick not included, DIY possible)
Deck Stab is an in-the-hand card stab that can be done anywhere, anytime. It’s created by Adrian Vega, the creator of SCAANDAL and Billing Card.
A card is selected, signed, and returned to the deck. The deck is shuffled and placed back into the card box. The magician takes a knife and stabs it through the deck and the box – the blade can be seen protruding through the box. Now, in one deft move, the knife is slid quickly to the side, with ONE CARD IMPALED on it. Yes, you guessed it – the spectator’s signed card! A miracle!
Deck Stab does not require a table at all. You can remove the deck from your pocket and you are ready to perform. It’s a perfect routine to close your card act.
Key points to remember:
- Easy to do
- No table required
- Highly visual
- Perfect for close-up, parlor, or stage
