I’m enjoying this string a lot myself. Some interesting points of view offered. For me, I’m good with just having a nice pocket knife, but others may find a whole cutlery set a bit more to their liking as to things, or something like that. 😁

To that end, and I think to the point of this string, I can remember when I was a lot younger, attending college down near the village in NYC, and I would see the” to become great,” Chris Capehart performing for a half hour or so out on the streets in front of the subway station with nothing but the Vanishing Hanky (TT). Man, he was amazing and cleverly creative with that thing. People were just glued to every move he made, with something so simple that he used so skillfully. The oohs, ash’s, and applause would fill the streets.

Of course, he became a NY magic legend and an all around great magician that went on to win Penn & Teller Fool Us, but I saw him way back when he wasn’t all that (yet), with something easy to do that delivered great impact & lasting amazement. Those were the days. 😊

I think this comes down to a couple of things. number one is skill level as what's difficult for some is easy for others and visa versa.
Number two presentational skills rather than physical skills as some magicians are really entertaining no matter what they do whilst others are very dull.

If I'm focusing all my energy on doing a "knuckle-busting" routine my presentation will suffer. Not to say high effort tricks aren't worth it, but you have to have it down pat clean to focus on presentation.
