slip knot? slydini tie?

Postby Guest » September 18th, 2007, 6:57 am

I have the trabell course in magic volumes 1-8. i am having a hard time locating(if it is in there) slipped knot or something to the effect of tying 2 silks together with a knot and it instantly vanishes. Any help would be great

It's commonly called "Slydini Silks" and is readily available from several sources. Tony Clark has a DVD on the effect and Penguin Magic sells a version of the silks with their own explanation of some of the moves.

It can also be found on Bill Malone's On The Loose Vol. 1.

you will find the knot on sympathetic silks.

its also a standard knot used in rope ties, since it is basicaly a square knot, which you upset, by pulling on one of the ropes.
I guarentee its there in Tarbell. Otherwise, it will be found in Rice silks.

Its a very old, standard move thats well published. Just more in the lines of rope and string tricks. :)
