By some unknown reason I have missed this thread. I confess from time to time I do a search to see if Im still in the BUZZ.
The good news is the original Kar is still available and I quote Crimsonking :
"Otherwise, make sure to check often the hocus-pocus site, because a lot of time an original Koornwinder Kar pops out!"
He is right.. check the site of Hocus Pocus, http://www.hocus-pocus.com/magicshop/
On that site you can also see a great Pete Biro picture with me and Juan Tamariz. In his book Sonata, Juan published a list of eight card tricks which he likes most as a performer. Yesone of the tricks he mentions is the Koornwinder Kar. Im still very proud with that recognition. I always ending my routine with the Crash Location. If you are interested in that feat send me a PM and Ill send you a 5 seconds clip.
