You folks keep saying but more organic.

I thought quiver was genuine leather ....surely that's organic as it was on a living animal.

.....oops there I go again being a typical British to$$er deliberately taking things to heart and using the wrong meaning. Smile

LOL Smile Have a great day.

PS I have ordered this too.... looks good.

Here's an uncut performance of Black Door if you are interested.

Here are a couple of things that stand out:
-He performs the trick twice.
-The reset is super fast.
-The participant handles and examines the envelope quite a bit.
-He basically has the spectator remove the contents of both envelopes.

Man how stong would that be to convince them that you can influence them the other way - put their money in and every time you could influence them to get theor money back. Nice!

Great demo - very good indeed.

No "hi-jacking" involved here, as the ignorant call it. The Magic Nook only sells to verified magicians, and I can see that none are present, so I'll be on my way.

Jim,

What a pompous thing to say. I think myself, along with many others here, will make it a point not to purchase from your site. Yes, please be on your way.

he he he he.... I liked it but I want to point out how funny I found your comment, Paul! Very astute (feel free to post a link to the meaning of astute if you feel the need.

At the risk of bringing back the trolls and critics of magician verification, I am returning long enough to thank Riccardo Berdini for "Black Door" (I just received mine in the hurricane delayed mail) and am glad to reassure everyone that it is nothing like my Switcheroo. However, a caveat - don't perform with all black envelopes. It does no harm to decorate the outsides of the envelopes as long as they remain black internally, and if you perform with an envelope with red stripes and I perform with a yellow envelope with green polka-dots it adds further distance to the idea that we might be employing the same techniques to accomplish several different end results. OK, now I leave you to your ... whatever it is you do here.



But your version of it will no doubt be available on the magic nook just as soon as one of the wiz kids works out how to rip it off.

You may note that I am late to this thread - I have read it all the way through and well I had to comment on some of the posts.

All thoughts are my own and I take full responsibility for my words. If anyone is unclear or thinks I may be wrong please feel free to let me know via PM and I will make sure I have made my point clear - I am happy to reword something if needed.

Yes I think it’s the polymer note issue in the UK and the £20 and the £50 paper ones are so big the folding of those still make it spring open . Better for playing cards at least in the UK imo Gaz 🙂

Purchased it and like it having used it for card switching.
Rather than producing refills perhaps bring out a mark 2 that is made of a more durable paper. I have found I have to be careful when placing the envelope into pockets both to avoid damagie but also and to keep clean and presentable. Curry grease is not a good look. Note to myself don’t place on restaurant table.

I keep mine in my monte wallet, that way it takes up no additional room and protects at the same time.

It is not that difficult to make replacements. I've been experimenting with a few improvement tweaks (for my planned usage) as well, even though the original is quite excellent. I will note that once I realized I could make competent replacements, it made me a lot less precious about how I used the originals, as I don't worry about them so much any more (of course, amusingly, those originals are still going strong).
