I need to know what a really good false cut is, it needs to look like the 'normal' cut (take the top and put it on the bottom) And don't just give me the name (unless it's easy to google ^_^)

Pass Cut

If you don't know what I'm talking about by the name, then take up box magic.

Erdnase, card college, expert card technique, and royal road -- four non-esoteric books that each have five or six false cuts in them. check those out. I find that I have no use for/can't do most of them;i like one or two; and typically retain one from each source. it's probably one of the easier things to quickly acquire a set of several different moves. of course what I suggest here doesn't push you to work at harder ones you aren't immediately drawn to. so I'd suggest also looking for some less epedient advice.

Bingo!

I'd add to that excellent list the Hustler's Triple Cut found in Darwin Ortiz' Annotated Erdnase.

Bill Malone has some nice variations as taught in his Sam the Bellhop routine from volume one of his On the Loose series.

I myself am always looking for good false cuts. I have found a lot of good examples on youtube. I don't know their names but just do a false cut youtube search and you'll come up with a few good ones.

I have long been a proponent of fellow Canadian Mel Stover’s “Winnipeg False Cut”, described and illustrated in Frank Garcia’s 1972 book, Million Dollar Card Secrets, pp. 93–94. It’s also covered in Roberto Giobbi's Card College, but I prefer Garcia’s description.

As a performing mentalist, I can’t be seen exhibiting anything that looks even remotely like card-handling skill: everything has to appear completely ordinary and without suspicion. This cut is easy to do, looks exactly like a normal cutting of the pack, and has escaped detection in the forty years that I’ve been using it.

Listen, everybody. iamtotallyrandom doesn't want a bunch of your fancy erudite references. He was clear that he wants simple, googlable names. I'll go you one better, buddy. Here's a direct link to a terrific false cut... with full explanation!

No I didn't. I learnt my false cuts from books or DVD's that I've bought.

Any card book you get will start out with false cuts and shuffles. Quick piece of advice, since I can see you are new here: rather than just coming and asking magicians to tell you, it is considered good form to do a little effort yourself. And rather than asking how to do something, instead try to get resources that would be worth looking into. Magicians have worked hard to learn what they know, and it is a little grating to have someone just say in effect "I'm not going to put in the work you did. Tell me how to do it."

Along those lines, I'll answer the question you should have asked. Try Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. It sounds like it might be your level, its really cheap on Amazon, and its got a false cut in there I stil use after years of learning from other places.l
