Imagine having a sharpie marker gently touch a deck of cards, only to have it start sinking through the deck like a hot knife melting through butter. While your audience is in utter astonishment by the impossible visual, you pull the sharpie out and dump out the entire deck of cards from the tuck case. Everything can be examined by your spectator. Impale is a full illusion set that fits right in your pocket. Perform it anywhere, anytime.
"I particularly like this because you can hand everything out at the end and use a regular deck of cards. This makes a great opening effect to any card routine - and most magicians carry a sharpie to have cards marked so it’s the perfect opening effect." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
