gpg --gen-revoke [key-id]. or have a look at askubuntu.com/q/323240/167385

An additional hint: also create a revocation certificate for your public key, not only the user IDs. Actually, revocation certificates are pretty much useless if you've also got a revocation certificate for the whole key; revoking the key also revokes the user IDs on the go, and if you've still got access to the key you don't need pregenerated revocation certificates for the user IDs.

comment Restore GPG key after exported to a smartcard
Likely this happened because the key was still around. When merging, GnuPG is probably always using the newest revision of a subpacket, so it kept the card-copy version created after the packet actually containing the key.

comment Restore GPG key after exported to a smartcard
As I already noted in the answer, GnuPG 2.1 can merge secret keys, thus no need for deleting it. gpg --export only export public keys, not the secret ones. GnuPG 2.1 stores private keys in the pubring.kbx or pubring.gpg file (it can work with both formats, while .kbx is the newer one). Anyway, as I understand you've been able to resolve the issue by deleting the key and importing again?

comment Restore GPG key after exported to a smartcard
Which GnuPG version are you using? If something older than GnuPG 2.1, did you delete the whole (public and private) key as I described above and imported it from scratch again?
