THIS VIDEO DEMO IS FROM THE MANUFACTURER:

Very eerie!

This knot actually UNTIES ITSELF! What??!

The effect: Take two white handkerchiefs and tie them together with a strong knot. At your command, the knot disappears, and the silks are separate! Incredible effect! The video demo shows several routines you can do with this easy to master trick!

The scarves are made out of strong parachute material for years and years of trouble free use!

Good News and Bad News.
I, like many people buying this trick, was hoping to get something akin to Slydini's famous tied silk routine. I had watched a video of Slydini performing this on YouTube, and fell in love with the seemingly impossible trick. This trick was suggested to me as being the same trick. It is not. The fault really lies in the instructions. Simple? - yes. Easy to follow and perform? - yes. But good? - no. The included instructions involve faking a knot, which limits what you can do, and can be spotted by an eagle eyed spectator at a close up performance. I was called out for not really tying a knot twice, by little old ladies no less. THE GOOD NEWS - You can get instructions for Slydini's real knots out there, either in Slydini's own writings, or through at least one DVD (I don't know who produces it). Slydini's technique uses real, and common knots, so you can even have a spectator tie the cloths. And the cloths are what are worth it with this set. Sliding recommended the use of a parachute fabric called ripstop, and while this isn't quite that, these are good quality cloths, that work the trick, and are at least half the price of other real ripstop handkerchiefs on the market. Now that I know the real technique, the knotted silks is a mainstay of my close up and table hopping act, and gets great reactions. So, get this for the cloths, but keep looking for the method.

More Than This Trick
The two handkerchiefs you get are the best part of this trick. I wish the instructions were better, because there is a bit more to learning this trick than just learning how to make the knot look like it has disappeared. According to my friend, the move you are taught in the instructions is a basic move for all rope type magic, but I had never learned that move before. So I guess I just wanted this to work right out of the pakage, but it requires that you read the directions and practice. The handkerchiefs are very nice however and I have actually used them in other tricks. The material they are made of is pretty slippery (which is useful) and heavier weight than the average silk.
