Re: one-handed shuffle

In Potter's Index, there is apparently a one hand shuffle in The Card Expert (1938) by Lynn Searles, page 28.

As I haven't this book, I can't garantee if it's a real one hand shuffle or a one hand multiple cut. Who can check ?

Re: Oil and water question

Jose Caroll's Oil and Water in a Wine Glass is a good (vertical) routine but it's not an odd-backed oil and water, it has an "evaporated water" for the climax.
