I have it set up in my wallet ALL THE TIME. I think that this is a great little trick. Whenever I'm hanging out with my friends, I always know one of them will say, "Show us a trick!" So, I always have my Kolossal Killer to save the day.
If it is to be, it is up to me.

It's difficult to show them KK more than one time, they may find the secret ... or you're very lucky ! Smile

Jamie is so right!
I love "Heirloom" it actually kills even more so!... I'll never forget the shock on my wife's face... after seeing the photograph and reading the letter!!

Deceptionguy: You ask 'Why stray from a classic ?' - well why not ? Kenton Knepper himself uses Heirloom - which to me means a great deal. But then... I'm biased ;-)

I too am biased since I myself have several versions of KK, and mix it with my (soon to be published) version of K.E.N.T.

Allow me to rephrase:

What events led to the creation of Heirloom? What (in your personal opinion) was wrong with the original, that led to Heirloom?

I hope you don't see this as an attack. I just like getting insights from creators...

Is Keith Lack's "Hell's Hustle" (see http://www.arlenstudio.com/background.htm ) anything like KK? It appears similar in some respects.

This is what I like about Heirloom over and above KK; perhaps this helps answer your question:

When I performed KK, I'd sometimes get a comment 'yeah, bet you have all 52 cards in the wallet'. Sure, as a magician you can scoff - perhaps place a deck alongside the wallet to show how unfeasible that would be etc - but the 'possible solution' has been proposed by the spectator and no matter how unfeasible, it hangs there. Since using Heirloom, no one has ever made that comment. Ever.

Also, a photo seems more 'at home' in a wallet. The story permits more depth to the effect.

With Heirloom, the spectators will want to hold the photo - to show it to one another. They can do so. There's never anything 'extra' to be found. Unlike KK.

I'm certain you could argue against the above - I have no problem with that - but fact remains that's why we did Heirloom. If it doesn't suit you, then use KK - which is superb in its own right!
