Magic Tricks and Playing Card Flourishes : How to do One-Handed Cut to Card Reveal Card Trick


Hi Malik the magic guy for expertvillage.com.
Now I want to show you how to use some one handed cuts to reveal a card that someone
selected. Now later on as you are studying card magic, you will learn ways to control
cards to the top and bottom using shuffles. In this case let’s use an example, like if
you found a card using a key card and you have cut it through the bottom of the deck.
Now you can either do a charlier, and if you cut it like this, then you come around, you
want to dig your fingers in right here and then you can push this card out as you open
your hand and flip that card over. Let me show you that again. That kind of requires
big hands and a lot of practice. But I wanted to show it to you so you can practice. So
you are doing your charlier cut. You are going to dig you finger in here. Then you are going
to push the card out as you open your hand and flop it over with you fingers. Just like
that; and that is the cool way to reveal a card. I will show you one more time kind of
full speed here. Just like that you can kick that over. Now there is another one using
the second one handed cut that I have showed you and because your fingers drag on the bottom
of the deck you can use it to pull out a card. So once again we want the selected card on
the bottom of the deck. We are going to cut it. We can just pull this card out and flip
it right back over to the top of the deck. I will show you that one more time. We want
the selected card on the bottom of the deck. We are going to reach around like this cut
it and drag our finger on the bottom, we are going to take that two with us and bring it
right around just like that. Now if you practice this enough you may actually even be able
to get the card to fly out of the deck. The way that you do that is you pull this out
so you get some spring; this definitely requires some practice, and you are going to take your
middle finger and just spin the card like that and if you get really good you can sometimes
even catch it. We are going to give it a try right now. That wasn’t a good example but
you can. Try it one more time. You can even catch the card and show them a flashy way
to reveal the card. So that is some ways to reveal a card in a one handed cut.

  1. hello friend, years ago when i first got into magic (well about 12 years ago when i was 14, im now a profesional magician who travels europe) i could not do this either due to small hands but if u practice a little then it becomes with speed it will become invisable to the layman x

  2. following up on what someone mentioned in a post a few days ago, DON'T let having stubby fingers deter you from advanced card manipulation. My hands are small enough to model women's jewelery. and I've developed some serious moves. It's all in your head, not your hands.

  12. Commen't 1 more noob comment and i will be in your closet/under your bed to kill you. No one can help you.//Trust me

  13. maybe that will sound silly but for me is hardest to learn one handed flourishes maybe need to change cards for that o what , i dont know 🙂 i cant do that properly ;/

  14. No, I think you need to re-phrase that… I replied to a dude who was saying "my hands are too small" and I was giving him some advice so he wouldn't give up, telling him that his hands aren't too small because mines are majorly small and I can do this, so I would look into a situation before you comment and make some bad-ass statement.
    So what if I'm 13 years old —> Next comment..

  15. that doesn't give you a right to go around critisising me.. quite a nasty statement if you ask me… Just because your older you think you can hastle me.

    I don't want to make a big thing about this, and I'm sure you don't either so I won't drag on.
    Sorry if you felt I wasted your time or you felt "annoyed" about what I commented.

    Peace from Scotland,
    -Paul

  16. Phew..

    I thought because of other comments you were going to start arguing with me!

    Thanks for respecting my opinion,
    -Paul

  17. I have a trick deck that has mostly 7 of hearts and i can use it to make every card I draw from the deck 7 of hearts but it's easy to change the main card into anything I want so people don't catch on

  18. This guy's explanation sucks. Demonstration's good. Explanation's virtually non-existent except for 'like this', and 'like that'.

  19. He says we need much practise but my hands aren't so big that i can do a charlier so i dont use my thumb when i push the other packet up and we dont need any practise to lift the card out!!

  20. @inmeeden thats actually really common..penn jillette is also a magician jugller combo, maybe you were being sarcastic though

  21. He's a good prestidigitator.The Charlier Pass is easy to learn from most books but the impressive spinning cut — that merits more than just a repeat. It's complicated and since the result is impressive I wish he took the time to give the cut a name and break it down.. Good video, anyway.
    The Charlier was a one time version of the pass used by cheaters– but only those playing with rubes that let the dealer take the deck away from sight, even with one hand.

  22. It's called " One handed Charlier Cut ". If u want a tut, then just write this in to the search bar: One handed charlier cut tutorial.You will find a LOT tutorials 🙂
