A masterpiece 450 years in the making.

In 1563, Giambattista della Porta published a manuscript titled "De Furtivis Literarum Notis." Within that manuscript, Porta described a means to reveal hidden messages on the side edge of playing cards. Based on research at the Conjuring Arts Research Center, the concept of hidden messages on playing cards was also used as a secret code during World War I.

EDGE by Mathieu Bich builds upon that history in a new, groundbreaking direction, allowing you to reveal selected cards, names, or predictions. Instantly resets - and it's almost entirely self working.

With Edge, you can cause writing to appear, disappear, or even change: visually.

The applications are limitless: you can write ANYTHING you want to reveal or predict. ANY language. ANY words. Whatever you want to write. Includes the special Bicycle deck and everything you need to perform the effect. Taught in 34 minutes of instruction by Mathieu Bich.

Good Reactions! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2013
This is the first time I bought a Mathieu Bich product.

The other reviews seem a little harsh... My experience with this trick got great reviews and reactions. Yes, it's a "one trick pony" but how many other effects can you only do one time, or require a card to be forced?

Just like with every routine you learn in magic, you are going to have to work on the handling and card position. It's a given, and a part of learning magic. This trick is very easy to perform if you take the time to learn it. It really is not difficult at all. This trick fools people.

If you are a beginner in magic, you should probably skip this.

Amazing Effect, Extremely Easy! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 10th, 2013
This product will be worth every cent if purchased. It is an awesome effect, and the reactions I have gotten from it were priceless. It is also as portable as it could possibly be. I carry it everywhere I go. I would give some cons with the pros, but I can't. There are none. Mathieu Bich creates awesome products, and this is one of his top ones.

Setting the Record Straight Report this review

"After release of this effect, we learned that Tom Gagnon published a similar concept in 1994. While Edge was created independently by Mathieu Bich in July of 2000, we extend full credit to Tom Gagnon as the first to publish an effect similar in technique and method to Edge."

Brilliant Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 2nd, 2013
I've been at magic for long time and I thought this was one of the most clever gimmicks. Not only do I love Mathieu Bich but I cannot get over the awesome edge gimmick. I've preformed it many times and each time I got a sweet reaction. And it's easy to do. Professional or beginner, you won't regret buying edge.

Neat trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2013
I like this trick. It's pretty easy to prepare although it does take a little thought to get it going. After that, it's worth the effort. I use it as a quick little trick and the reveal of the spectators signed card always get an astonished laugh.

Living on the EDGE!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 24th, 2014
Very cool effect!!! Get this if you live for reactions and fooling people. Easy to perform, not much practice needed, awesome reactions(w/ the routine I created). BE CAREFUL WITH THE CONSTRUCTION!!! Don't use anything permanent at first. Then blot the permanent. TAKE YOUR TIME or you will bleed!!! Wish this would have came premade on some sense but the effect gets 5 stars.

my routine:
BIRTHDAY FORCE COUNT - ask the spectator their birth month and date. Say August 15th but use 8/15. Ask the spectator to choose one of her birth numbers. This makes it personal and creates more magic as if it's their free choice.

ODD COUNT - if your deck is set up right, you will always look for the odd numbered card 1,3,5,7-31 (doesn't go past 31. Perfect for the birthday force count. You'll see). Say if she chose her birth month "8", deal out eight cards (in their hand or table) face down so they can't see. When you deal the eighth card, give them the next card, the ninth card and the force is complete. If she chose her birth day(15), give her the 15th card. Just always force the odd numbered card.

NOTES: I like it more when they select "their" card, to NOT reveal it yet. Do the effect and then ask them to reveal their card to everyone.

you can take it a step further with my routine with the double message and do a card switch. I leave that routine to your imagination.
