Cut and Restored Rope is a common magic routine in which a piece of rope is apparently cut, then shown whole again.

Many other objects preceded using ropes including strings, shoe or shirt laces and tapes.

Harlan Tarbell, by 1926, was one of the first magicians to publish effects using rope, so that a larger audience could see the effect.


(To cut a rope in half and pretending to tie it, show after it is restored).
