Locating a lost card by stabbing the deck with a knife instantly adds more excitement, an extra level of impossibility, and a hint of danger to your magic.

Countless professionals have featured some kind of card stab to great success, and a few have built their reputations on this mind-blowing stunt.

First, an interesting method is employed to bring two cards together under cover, allowing someone to locate both (simultaneously) with a single stab.

Then, a bold, yet clever, ruse allows the knife to be thrust anywhere in the deck by anyone, yet the card will be revealed right next to it.

And, in yet another impromptu variation, no cover is required as a simple move (that you probably already do for another reason) makes the whole thing work.

Then Dan shows you a do-it-yourself, little gimmick that makes locating the card very easy, even with the deck sealed in an envelope.

Next, Dan's favorite stand-up stab combines danger with drama as the card is revealed impaled on the knife in a blazing flash of fire.

Then, Dan leads you into the reputation-making realm of the table-top stab and gives you a ton of variations, each one more incredible than the last... prepared, impromptu, with and without cover... ultimately culminating in a double-stab coincidence that is startling to watch and a joy to perform.

Following that, is a direct, impromptu method done with no cover... using any deck, a knife, and a clever move which simulates perfect placement.

And finally, a special, subtly-altered deck of cards (you probably already own) allows you to perform an impressive feat of hands-off stabbing.

In fact, there are so many ingenious approaches to this astounding premise that, when you're ready to take a stab at it, you'll have several ways to do it.

I like the concept of going through Tarbell's books and making videos that give you fundamental ideas to use for specific tricks that you can then use in other tricks as well.

I was in the mood to challenge myself and I did the flashiest trick - which is card stabbing into a deck wrapped in flash paper - so it's card stabbing on fire!

Dan Harlan is a great instructor who truly loves what he's doing and honestly I think I practiced this trick for under 15 minutes before I performed it and wowed a small crowd. He had a version that was practically self working - so yeah - I haven't bought enough of these videos - but based on good and inventive this one is, I certainly look forward to purchasing more!

If you want to know every thing about card stabbing, this is it! Most impressive for me is the 5-fase-routine: entertaining with only card stabbing!
If you are looking for anything else than card stabbing, look further. The reason for 4 stars: it is all (!) you have to know ... about only one idea :-(.

Well I can say anything is amazing, let me tell you what I like and dislike about this download.

There is so much content in this-most videos now are only one trick. This video is all about card stabbing but it has many different effects.
Decent amount of impromptu material. Some material requires set up but most of it is impromptu.
Great Teaching!!!
Lots of variations on each trick.


So to sum it up I would pay $20 but no more! Perfect price for quantity and quality.
