Cut & Restored Streamer Question

Postby Guest » April 12th, 2006, 5:27 am

I'm researching an improvement of method for a friend who does a cut and restored effect with a long silk streamer, unrolled from a turban.
In a McB Master Class it was suggested to research a method used by David P. Abbot- anyone know this? I don't have the Todd Karr book, alas, it may be in there...?
Many thanks in advance...

I think Cyril Yettmah's version "The Cut and Restored Turban" is in our book, The Notebooks of John Northern Hilliard.

The Lost Notebooks of John Northern Hilliard, Page 164 - Cyril Yettmah's version of the Cut and Restored Turban.

Volume 5, Lesson 65, page 282 - Tarbell's Course in Magic has a Cut and Restored Turban, but no reference as to the inventor.

Yet another Hindu Turban Cut and Restored is located in Volume 6 of Tarbell, Lesson 81 - p334.

Spellbinder's searchable indices are worth the effort! Next, I believe he is adding Hilliard's Greater Magic to the list.

I think I would use the method Tabary uses in the cut-and-restored sequence of his Rope Routine. The streamer/turban can be used over and over, since it isn't really ever cut.

Just this past Sunday we were talking about "old time -- classic" magic, and Stan Kramien mentioned the Afhgan Bands and how it was one of his Palor favorites, and a couple of us agreed. It's great and I used to use it in the restuarant and leave it with the customer...

Thanks so much, gentlemen. Interesting to find out: Todd Karr was nice enough to provide the info for my friend from the Abott book, and it was the same method she was using already!
I'll research all this...thanks!
