The cut and rest9ored rope has been around a long time. It was first written about in Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft," published in 1584. At that time it used the laces that tied the sleeves on doublets and dresses.

Aw yes. The cut and restored rope holds a special place in my heart as the first trick I ever learned and performed. I can still hear the applause ringing in my ears...
Sort of brings a tear to my eye Smile

With all the new rope routines released.The classic cut and restored rope just cutting it once and restoring it still gets a great reaction.

I too, love the Sands routine and I don't always do the entire routine, but instead do the classic cut and restored and then go into Sands. Whereas Sands starts out with a complete package on the table and never uses a real scissors.

Of course, I have a few odd cut and restored of my own, where the spectator cuts, ties the knot, and restores the rope.

Ian,
GREAT idea having it cut and tied in the participants hand! I've not seen that.

Ian is pulling your leg. That routine features his original move that can only be learned by buying his DVD. It is a very simple, and equally deceptive move.

I do the C&R Rope at every stand-up show I do.
Always gets a great reaction.

I just came across two of the Sandsational ropes routines I bought wholesale from George many years ago. I first saw his lecture in 1974, it was my first lecture. I have been doing it ever since.
It has inspired most of my rope work.

Thanks Al! I'll take what Ian says in more "loose" terms.

You can take what I say, literally, but I do self promote a bit. Al just knew the routine was mine. That being said, aside from my own techniques. I like the Eric Lewis methods for C&R, and I usually cut the rope as I enter into Sands routines.
Here is my classic cut and restored, then I go into Sands, then a Frank Garcia cut and restored.. its just under 4 minutes of rope. You will also see my own c&r pickup, and a move where the specator stretches the ropes for me.
