Knife-Blade Glimpse of a Card

A knife blade is inserted freely into a deck to select a card. The card above the blade is displayed to the person who inserted the knife. As the knife is removed from the deck, a reflection of the index of the card is glimpsed by the magician. Alon Lord described this technique to The Sphinx, Vol. 9 No. 1, Mar. 1910, p. 6.
