Here's an interesting effect and method, though a tricky item to perform smoothly.  Practice conquers all, and so you can get the hang of this one, but it will take some dedication.  The effect is very impressive, though, so worth the effort. 

A card is selected and placed faceup on the red backed Bicycle deck.  Another Blue backed card, with two "port holes" cut in its corners is placed over the faceup selection and then (after a mock Karate chop that theoretically splits the selection), the bottom half of the selected card is slid to the left, under the port hole card.  The windows in the cover card allow the spectators to see the split selection (as in the photo).   In the end, the halves are re-aligned and the selection is restored.  

A neat gimmicked card helps you acheive the effect, along with the aforementioned practice.    This effect is usually supplied with same color back on the gimmick as your regular deck, but I have a few with contrasting back color.  The effect is the same, but perhaps a bit clearer, given that the special Karate card stands out from the rest.

Brand new with instructions.

Open Zig Zag Card -- Jumbo size (Tricks Co. Ltd)
There have been a lot of Zig Zag card versions out, but I think this may be the best. It is well made, and not to tough to do. Three Jumbo cards -- two spots and a face -- are shown. The facecard is turned facedown, and sandwiched between the spot cards. With the squared packet held so that the facecard is faceup in the middle, the magi reaches in and begins to pull a section (the middle third) of the facecard out of the packet so that it extends about an inch. To let everyone see better, he takes away the top facedown spot card, and puts it beneath the packet. Now, in full view, the audience sees the face card with its middle pulled out. He pulls it a bit more, until it is sticking out about two-thirds of its width. Putting the spot card facedown on top again, he pushes the zigzagged section back into the packet, and then removes the King to show it unharmed. Jumbo sized cards, good for either closeup, or club.
