Backstab by Zak Mirzadeh (Online Instructions and Gimmick)
"One way to view BackStab is actually as a tool rather than a single trick. Once you watch the tutorial you’ll realise the potential this has from close-up to stage. You will learn how to make your own gimmick if you want to change the card design. " -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
Zak Mirzadeh's Backstab is the most impossible "Stab To Your Card" trick ever! Your spectator selects a card and loses it in the pack. With nothing more than your trusty pocket knife (or your spectator's pocket knife) - you stab straight to their selection for a miraculous "Card At Number" effect!
