I am about a year behind on this, Rope nut and knot by Giovani Livera came out a year or so ago. I got to tell you, this is a great effect and pure slieght of hand. This is one that I am definitly adding to my show. And I don't do that often. This is a keeper. Do the work and practice. It's a real gem.
SHAZAM!

I agree. I have used this in my walk around show since it was released. It's definitely a crowd pleaser!

I have been doing it a lot too..it takes quite a few tries to get comfortable with it as there are many situations that you confront that you need to adjust to.
worth the time .

I remember the day last week, that I mastered the self tying knot in the rope. You know the bit at the start, where you show a rope, a nut and a Knot and give the rope a little jerk and there you are. I get it at least 2 out of three tries now. Looks like real skill. L.O.L.
Lots of practice and self denile.

I too use this in my work. It is very easy to add your own personality and style to it to make it your own and still have the impact of the original handling that Giovanni does.

Also in every close-up show that I do, I also use his Salt & Silver. Such great stuff!

When an Effect entertains my wife, YOU know it's good.

I have been looking for a Gigantic ring to use with slightly smaller diameter rope..
Problem is dealing with load under deck at the end as virtually all huge rings that are interesting are larger across the front..
Even considering an antique sterling napkin ring for a different flair.
Great and riveting routine.

I am looking for a copy to include in my routine and it is sold out everywhere. Has anyone got a copy they want to sell? PM me if so.

Thanks.

Hi!

I'm retired from 50 years on the road. I did a lot of ring & rope bits. I "stumbled" onto this thread, this evening.) It sounds like what my late Dennis Loomis and I called the "Will Rogers Knot (the one handed knot). I used "WR" knot for years. I'm now approaching 87 and don't have the muscular timing that I did have. so, I've "lost" the WR. Denny put out a dvd of his knot routine in 2003. He did several variations of the WR on the dvd. If it's of interest, PM me, and, I'll put you in touch with Dale Lorzo, (former Ronald MacDonald) who helped dispose of Denny's props and books when he died. Dale may still have a copy. (Oh!! It IS REAL SKILL!!!)

U.F. Grant come out with the "Fastest Rope in the West" in the 1960's. It was a way to simplify the instant knot in rope. Just snap the rope and every time there is knot, no fuse no mess. Keep it simple!

Theo: Hopcus Pocus magic has it in stock. Its not cheap or discounted. That's where I bought mine. In my opinion, its worth it for the rope it came with. A used copy will get you the routine and you will have to source a rope. If you look at other posts, its a frustrating adventure. One that I've been on.

Dick, as someone who has "mastered" the one handed knot, I'm curious about a couple of things. One, the type of rope used has a dramatic impact on my success. I mastered the knot then went in search of more rope. Two different types of rope gave me dramatically different results. With one very worked in and soft rope, I can get it about 95 out of 100. With a newer rope (seemingly of the same size and type) I was only able to get 1 out of 10. If I started learning with the "new" rope I think I would have given up. In other words, I can do it on an expert level with one type of rope and a novice level with a different rope. Just a thought, as I'm positive you can still do it at 87! The type of rope can be demoralizing as I found out. Despite my claims of being an expert on it, I am curious what else there is to learn.
