STAB'D Deadly impromptu mentalism using a sharpened pencil
Andrew's impromptu version of the infamous mentalism effect that's scarred many performers. A sharpened pencil is mixed up in one of three envelopes. A spectator is given a total free choice to decide which ones are empty (no magician's choice!). You stab the first selection into your chest and are unharmed. You slam the spectator's hand into the second and they're unscathed. You then rip open the last envelope to reveal the deadly pencil.
