Good trick, is the bag examinable before or after, the man in the video asks at the end and Mark ignores him?

Can't wait for Figment but this first do much for me. There were much more transparent card stabs in Penguins Tarbell episode, the bag hides everything here which minimizes the payoff for me. Jmho, I'm sure many others will disagree.

Just worked out a simple workable way to do this.

I think it's obvious that a previously altered fork is rung in. Hate the look of the card on the fork, looks prepared. Handling prior to reveal seems clunky. Overall underwhelming... And I like Mark's stuff usually, so it's nothing personal. Just don't think this is strong.

I wonder how many seconds the hyper impressed spec (#sarcasm) will take to work out the card can be removed by sliding it down the the handle of the fork?
messy not magical..

A really nice bag stab routine is using David Stone's ZENITH and the card can be signed,so I will stick with that one plus it looks so much more impossible as their card is placed inside the deck box.

There are lots of comments here so I hope I cover them.

At the end of the routine you show the bag empty, it's just a bag so they can see clearly into it and can see nothing.

In the shop I actually gave the bag to a magician that came in and he found nothing. The bag is not handed out in the routine; it is however shown empty and put back in your pocket or tossed to one side.

The guy in the video is just making a general comment about the bag as far as I can tell; not asking for examination.

Catweazle: The main point of this routine is that the spectator is left with an impossible object at the end, if the fork just slid off It would serve not purpose. The card will not come off the fork.

Mark's card is prepare differently to the ones supplied, he use to use a hole punch to make the holes until I pointed out that it looked too prepared and not stabbed. The card in the tuition and object supplied now have small rips in the card instead of holes. This means it looks more like it is stabbed.

The card is square on the fork but if you wanted it on angle that is easy enough to do if you wanted it to look a bit more random.

Mark also teaches a torn corner version if you would rather do it that way and jacket pocket version if you don't want to use a bag. This version is clever as the spectator can feel inside you pocket and there is only a deck and fork.

This can also be presented stand-up or close-up as shown, or I'm sure people can see how could be used with cards being thrown around failing and then using a bag.

The object at the end is amazing and as you can see by the girls reactions is impressive and because they are quick, easy and cheap to make you don't have to worry about giving them away.

Amazing? Hmmm. Not a word that I'd use to describe it.

Forksaken is now available with free worldwide shipping.

It was received very well at Blackpool, selling very well with people being impressed with the impossible object and organic nature of the effect.

It makes no sense then. If the card will not come off, how did it get on?

I generally like Mark's stuff, but this looks very poor to me.

This is a magic trick the impossible can happen and they are left with the impossible object.

This does not make much sense until you actually see it, the effect alone is a classic where you can stab and impale the card on the fork, when you point out it won't come off and they can keep it that is a real bonus.

Perform it at a party and write happy Birthday Bob or whatever on it and I'm 100% sure they will keep it as a reminder of the party.

I can say this with some certainty because the girl in the trailer still has it in her kitchen on display.

This is one of those tricks that is simple to do and gives them something to keep, signed cards are very rarely kept this is different and more unusual.

They are also quick and easy to make when you know how and very cheap as well.

I can keep going on about how good this is.

I go out performing and use this all the time to give the booker a souvenir of the night that they can examine all they like, there are no tears or slits that are hidden or stuck back down, a normal unprepared card is used, everything about the card is 100% normal because it is.

If you only perform for friends then there may be limited opportunities to use this, but if you work events and parties this is great.

On Saturday I'm going to do this for the first time as a fork stab like a card sword on stage. When the cards are thrown too early we will gather them up put them in a the bag and find it that way at the end of the routine and the helper can keep the card.

When card sword effects are done you can't give away the sword but the fork you can and the card is impossibly on the fork.
