To tell you the truth, I bought it a year ago and never used it, But I would never sell. I hope to use it together with a vanishing radio when I get one, just something I want to work on. I have a DVD with Pavel's rope tricks, and most of them are very good, thanks.

I think Pavel`s walking knot is his best rope trick but I also like his yellow rope.

Have fun,

Not sure of the name but I always liked the one where he ties knot after knot until there's a big bundle of them and then suddenly the bundle falls off and he's left with a short piece of rope.

Pavel's junior walking knot has an additional two part trick that compliments it called the Krazy Knot, and the Krazy Knot finish. The three tricks are a three part rope routine with a surprise finish. The trick you remember is the Krazy Knot (middle) portion of the routine.

I miss my old friend. Pavel was very creative with rope and silk. Most can be done without patter and that solves a lot of language and hearing problems with audiences.

I had diner with Pavel at Daytona convention two years ago. He vowed to never do another U.S. convention. He felt he was treated rather shabbily. We were all lucky to see him do his silent rope act during one of the evening shows. He had a European sound track and over the top stage movement (kind of Marcel Marceau). He did all of his classic effects.

Pavel used to send me email messages from time to time thanking me for being his biggest fan at the Knots & Loops forum of the magic Café.

Once I told him that I wanted a false knot for a Hunter Bow knot trick, and when I took a good look at his false knot it was a hunter bow false knot.

What a guy

I personally love the yellow rope mystery. I perform it to music

I like his trick when he takes the three knots off a rope. It leaves the rope missing links in between.

Yellow Rope mystery?

Which one is that........?

I will always be grateful to Pavel for the time he spent with me many years ago teaching me variations on the Knots-Off Silk. The Knots-Off Silk is still an important part of my show. The 36" size is much easier to handle than the 24" size.

Pavel was great. You can tell he was a great guy from your posts.
although his dvds have not received great praise, I would say that his creative magic dvds
provide some of the best routines for kids and stage that you could get in a dvd set.
dollar for dollar, how many incredible rope routines and silk routines are there?
recently an experienced pro said he was switching out a lot of his colored box magic for things like ropes. YOu get the same visibility,
greater mobility. takes up a lot less space. I wish I would have known Pavel. I am thankful for your sharing about him.
