I am looking for a specific name and credit for a force that is essentially the criss-cross force, but done in one's hand.

Another card or similar object (knife, credit/business card, etc.) is inserted into the deck. The performer then does a move similar to the criss-cross force but keeps both halves of the deck in his hands, resulting in the card directly underneath the marker being the force card. (I hope that this is specific enough to give somebody a clue while being vague enough for the general board "away from prying lay-eyes" policy.)

Sounds like the Stanley Collins force.

That's the one. I also found a more recent handling/credit for Matthew Bich.

Thanks loads. It saved me a few hours of scouring through books.
