Effect: The magician places a grey piece of cloth over his left hand. There's a red plastic 'box' with a slot mounted to the piece of cloth. Magician takes a playing card (a business card would also work) and pushes it into the box, right through his hand. After pulling out the card the magician grabs the now 'severed' fingers and pushes them about 2cm upwards to prove they are cut off by the card. After removing the cloth the hand can be shown as unharmed.
Card may be handed out to spectators.
Required Skills: some practice required.
Comment: the reactions of the spectators were quite different: from 'where's the trick?' to 'eww, that looks disgusting' - Tenyo did better tricks, but it's definitely recommended for collectors.
