Kristal Card Stab by Bob Swadling(c. 1993) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
A FREELY-SELECTED CARD is SIGNED and lost in the deck. The deck is wrapped in paper and string. A dagger is thrust through the deck, and the CARDS BURST INTO FLAMES, leaving the SIGNED CARD IMPALED on the dagger.
This effect was from Kay Kristal’s professional repertoire. This is what Kay has to say in the introduction:
As a professional magicienne, it becomes increasingly difficult to find original mind-blowing magic, that is commercial. This effect is just that. It is so different that it has gained me appearances on every Television Channel and secured me performances like the Sultan of Brunei, Michael Jackson, and the Rolling Stones. Without a doubt, a Reputation Builder.
My kind of magic has always been geared towards the entertainment side of things, and l am a great believer in magic that just happens. Because of this, I have never been a great lover of the ‘run-of-the-mill’ card tricks. Therefore you can imagine my excitement when I thought of the idea of having a freely-selected card signed, lost in the deck and wrapped in paper and string; thrusting a dagger through the deck, as the deck bursts into names, leaving the signed card impaled on the dagger. Robert Swadling made this a reality, and like all his magic it was up-lifting, refreshing, and, of course, top quality. For years, I have been performing this effect exclusively, but now it gives me great pleasure in allowing Robert Swadling to release it, so that you may share in its rewards too.
