Hey Folks:

I thought I'd add to this post since...well...I started it and have found EXACTLY what I was originally looking for. I'm not sure if it's mentioned here, but it's part of Mac King's lecture notes, called MAC KING'S OTHER ROPE TRICK.

Great effect, and thanks for all the suggestions. They certainly helped me look in places I wouldn't have...and I learned a few things in the process.

Can someone please PM me with the answer of the following question: Where can I find the method of this effect...You take a long piece of rope (lets just say 10'), you cut the rope in the center, show the two separate pieces of rope (you do not necessarily have to let them inspect them), tie them together, and slide the knot off (or pop off). I'm sure the answer to this might be in here, but it gets really confusing because the people replying sound confused.

Whit Haydn's Mongolian Pop Knot routine (see his site) or any good magic shop will have books describing the how to for this. Look under "cut and restored rope."

I forgot to add that in the end, it's still one rope. But thank you, I will look around.

You might want to look at Fiber Optics, which shows you how to do some of this basic stuff and a great deal more, too.

Neither Fiber Optics nor Mongolian Pop Knot will allow you to show both pieces of rope right before the knot popping off.

In Mongolian, you show 3 different separate pieces of rope, tie them together with 2 knots, and then have both knots pop-off... But at no point can you simply show 2 pieces of rope in separate hands, tie them together, have the knot pop off, and restore them.

Welcome to the Magic Café. The "Junior Walking Knot" will work. It does everything you ask, except it is not inspectable at the end. This has been a very difficult topic to answer because people keep changing the question.
