"Semi- Automatic Card Tricks Vol.9" has practically the whole book full of routines that use the Un-Faro. One even says it uses no slights, just two Un-Faro. And not a word on how to do this illusive maneuver.
Remember, slightly less than two present of all UFO sightings turn out to be actual extraterrestrial craft.

If by Un-Faro you mean what I've always seen called Anti-Faro, then no, I wouldn't call it a sleight. It's just a dealing procedure and usually the worst part of it is making it as less boring as possible!

If you own the books "Mnemonica" or "Sonata", the two masterpieces by Juan Tamariz, you'll' find chapters dedicated to the Anti-Faro. There are certainly other books that talk about it, I'm sure, but I'm not able to point you in any particular direction. Maybe someone else here on the Forum?

What Mark said.

The procedure itself is simple: hold the packet in dealing position and outjog every 2nd card until the packet is exhausted. What to do next depends on the effect.

This is a procedure that can be very effective in producing strong magic. Check out its use by Simon Aronson, John Bannon, Harry Lorayne in their recent works.
Excellent stuff.

Thank you, Steve call this a reverse faro. The Russian Genius call it one of the hardest controls My mistake.
Beam calls it semi-automatic.
