I like the paddle move with two sticks in one hand. Haven't seen that before (but I'm sure it's been done).

The first place I saw a Paddle Move done with two items in the same hand was when Merrill was up at Tannen's one day and demonstrated his color-changing knives. I think at one point he had three or four knives in one hand!

I do the paddle move with two in the one hand all the time. But not together side by side. I do it end to end! I have done it this way for over fifty years!

The paddle move with 2 chopsticks in one hand was published in 100% Sankey in the routine "Balancing Act", 1990 Kaufman & Greenberg.

I am doing it here in this interview. I start the paddle trick at 6 minutes. At the end of the trick I do the two in one hand thing.

I like that someone's thinking about the paddle trick. Not sure how well bling goes with eating utensils but hey it's got Gangnam Style :)

I think the paddle move done with more than one item dates back to the routine with dice... and likely before that too.

I first saw it done by some long forgotten magician in a magic shop when I was a teenager and have used it for the rest of my life. Oddly enough I have never seen it done by anyone else in that fashion although I have certainly seen it done with the paddles side by side but never end to end.
