Bryan, I know that there is a cut and resored silk/hankercheif effect taught on The Real Secrets of Magic DVD by David Stone, along with some other wonderful effects!

Tannens used to sell an effect called Snip-Snap Silk. It's a very clean c&r achieved by draping the silk on a piece of paper and folding the paper over the silk and cutting through both paper and silk. At the end the silk is removed undamaged. I don't recall if this is described in the Rice Encyclopedia. BTW Neil Foster used this in his stage act.

Bryan,

This sounds strange coming from the magicians' silk importer, but I do that trick in my Lobbyist routine cutting through red tape. However, I actually use red ribbon!

There are a couple of versions described in Rice's Encyclopedia of Silk Magic, Volume 3, and the Phoa Cut and Restored Silk is described in Mark Trimble's Volume 4.

In Tarbell Course you will find "The Classic" one (which was also performed by Mullica, Henning, etc.)

In the Snip-Snap Silk routine the silk is WHOLE at the conclusion and could be used for another effect requiring an ungimmicked silk.

Snip-A-Silk is briefly described in Volume II of the Encyclopedia of Silk Magic, page 620. The complete effect with specially prepared paper, routine, and 18" silk is available at this link

Hello Ruth> thanks for the information!

As it happens, this seems to be a little different from the Snip-Snap silk routine in that in the latter the silk is actually separated into two halves and then restored into one single silk.

Thanks for all the help you all have given me. Which of the methods that have been listed here do not use any cover when the silk is cut (tube, paper, ect?).

Thanks and take care,

Bryan,

Your need for purity will cost you. The method discribed in Tarbell course Vol. 8, I believe, and use to be sold on the market as a stand alone product before it was published uses a new silk for each performance. It is good and startling, but costly.

Tom Mullica used a pocket hanky he borrowed from a spectator. The spectator was surprised when he got home.

The method used by Phoa Yan Tiong is both startling and magical but, as mentioned by WmH, it will cost you.

Best,

Dave

Harry,

Could you be specific? LOL

It is hard to beat the basic books. The more time I spend in them, the more convinced I am that "new magic" is usually a function of ignorance of what already exists.

Gee, I thought I invented "take a card". You mean it happened before MTV? But I do it in color! LOL

Discovery never stops if you are open to the possibility that others can think too.

Enjoy your magic.

Not to my knowledge, it is so simple, DVD not necessary. It is Tarbell 7 as stated by Harry Murphy.

Just be warned it uses a new silk each time it is performed.

Tom Mullica performs it with an ordinary men's handkerchief.

Phoa's cut and rstored silk is great. and yes it uses a new silk every time. but that is the same as when you do rope tricks. I do the trick in my kids show and it is one of the best magical moments for kids and adults alike.
