Devil’s Own Ribbon

The instructions describe the effect as follows. The performer stretches a length of ribbon between his hands, folds it in half, and then, holding the two ends in one hand, forms a loop, allowing it to hang down. Taking a large knife, he inserts the blade in the top of the ribbon and proceeds to cut through it. The audience see it cut, yet the ribbon may be restored instantly. The cutting and restoring may be repeated again immediately.
