Cut and Restored Rope
This is a very lovely clever little trick that you can keep in your pocket to perform anywhere.
You show a small piece of rope and a plastic holder. You thread the rope through the holder, then with a sharp movement you cut the rope in two. The ends of each piece of rope can be clearly seen as severed. Then you close the gimmick and un-thread the rope, it is perfectly restored and can be checked over.
Completely self working and so easy to perform.
