Killer Cut By John Kaplan
alt="DVDKILLERCUT-FULL" title="DVDKILLERCUT-FULL" width="140" height="140" class="alignright size-full wp-image-2426" />

One handkerchief. One newspaper. One cut.

They saw it happen. Or did they?

Your spectators will be doubling their own senses after they witness this diabolically devastating double restoration.

Here’s what your spectators see…
•You openly show a silk handkerchief and a sheet of newspaper.
•The silk is fairly placed into the folded newspaper.
•The newspaper and handkerchief are cut in half.
•The halves of both the handkerchief and newspaper are shown to be unmistakably separate.
•Both the handkerchief and the newspaper are again cleanly and openly shown.

No switches. No steals. NO worries. Nothing added or taken away.
Completely self-contained. Practically self working and exceptionally clean and easy in handling. You show the same handkerchief and newspaper openly and deliberately both before and after the effect.

It is a perfect re-creation of a classic stage illusion – Sawing a Lady in Half – that you can preform almost anywhere with things you can literally carry in your pocket.
