A borrowed cigarette, placed in the metal tube, is sliced in half by a sharp knife or razor blade. The tube can even be levered apart on a hinge, apparently breaking the cigarette in half. And yet, when the tube is opened again, the cigarette is entirely unharmed. Mechanical tube operated simply and surely - and in a more surefire manner than other models we have encountered. Also provided is a duplicate ungimmicked prop which may be handed out for examination at the conclusion of the effect. A handsome prop and the first of this style we have encountered. Very good condition.
