Slydini Silks - Knotted Handkerchiefs
- The knotted hankies are pulled tight, yet instantly separate
- No preparation
- Real performance magic
Two silk squares are tied together by their corners. The knots are tightened and checked by a spectator - yet the silks separate themselves as if the knots simply dissolve. This effect was made popular by Slydini and has since become an important part of many professional magician's acts.
