Broken and Restored Thread

Postby MartinKaplan » October 6th, 2013, 2:14 pm

One of the advantages of living here in Spain is getting to "discover" magicians who are masters of their art, but not very well known in the USA. One such magician is Javi Benitez from Seville, Spain. Javi does a version of the broken and restored thread that has absolutely blown me away the two times that I have seen him do it. The method is not the traditional one and it looks like real magic in his hands. It is available as a download from Dani DaOrtiz's Kaps Store and it is priced way too low at 12 Euros. Here is a link to the demo. You can decide for yourself. The video is available both in English and Spanish.

Javi Benitez is a great magician! His version of this clasic is superb, and what an original ending.

I agree it's a very clever handling for the T&R thread.
Congrats to Javi Benitez for coming up with a new twist to an cherished classic.
