I bought the krazy knot or possibly the krazy knot finale from Pavel awhile ago. Playing around with it I had the idea that the short piece that you end up with might be better with the gimmick offset from the centre as this is where this short length of rope tends to get folded during the effect. I emailed the idea off to Pavel and a few days later recieved a small package. He had made up the gimmick as I had described and sent it to me as a gift. What an incredibly nice man.

I was glad to help you with the "Krazy Knot", "Acrobatic Knot", "Krazy Knot finale" routine. I want to thank you for talking me into buying the "Junior Walking Knot", because I now have a change up trick for the middle part of the "out of my hat" rope tricks routine. I must say that the "Junior Walking Knot" is a very impressive and original trick, that Pavel really knows his stuff, and in my opinion that Harry Murphy really knows his rope tricks.
THANKS HARRY

Just an idea: If you have cut the rope and tied it. Would it be an idea to use a popsy peg to mark the position? Maybe 2 pegs for 2 positions? next you slide the knot to peg #1, untie it, tie it again and move on to peg #2.

I heard from Pavel this morning, and he said all THREE effects have interchangeable parts, and were meant to be used together. First the junior walking knot, then krazy knot, and finally the krazy knot finale, so it looks like I will be buying the junior walking knot to go with the TWO tricks I already have.

Logan baby
Can you tell me how many fingers I'm holding up?

Hi, was wondering where I could purchase the Krazy Knot with the extra finale? I have Pavel's cabaret ropes video and it tips the method for the standard Krazy Knot. Can anyone tell me where I can buy the gimmicks involved (I don't want to tip the method, but those of you who have the commercial version will know what I mean)

Or would it be easier to buy the pre-made version?

The trick from Pavel comes with these pegs to mark the positions just as you suggest. That is the original handling.

Could a light object be "hung on the rope" as in a "cloths line" suggestion?

"Object" such as a scarf(s) to be used prior to the cutting routine...

thanks

Without letting the cat out of the bag you could hang a light object from this rope, but I do not recommend that you use it in your bed room. Hint, nudge, wink.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

This could probably be a new thread, but I think it fits in OK. Some years ago, for a short spot, I performed Pavel's Super Walking Knot routine. I then had to make some announcements and finish with another quick trick. As I didn't want to use any other props, I decided to finish with Bob Sheet's Hang'em High (rope through body effect) using Pavel's SWK rope that was already on stage stretched between two chairs. All I did was use the rope from Pavel's Krazy Knot (or Krazy Knot Finale) in the Hang'em High manner and it worked beautifully. It's a little more fiddly than using the Sheet's gimmick, but not too much! You will need to move the chairs closer together to give you "some slack" when doing the rope-through-body. Owners will know why. So, If you've got Hang'em High and the two Pavel tricks, you'll know exactly what to do.

Thank you for the welcome, Al.

I should add that I made two bollards (those short standing poles they use to thread rope through to form barriers alongside red carpets and at movie theatres etc.) to use with the SWK instead of chairs. I simply bought two cheap lamp standards from KMart. I discarded the lamp ends and plugged the ends with epoxy putty. I then drilled a hole about an inch from the top and screwed in an eye bolt of about 1 inch diameter in each stand to take the rope (the epoxy resin keeps it solid). I then placed a plastic stopper/bumper on each end to finish them off. I managed to find lamp standards that had a silver finish and had no switches on the actual stands. They look great and break down for packing. It's much better performing this trick knowing that the rope will always be at the exact same height rather than relying on borrowing chairs at the venue. All up, it cost me about $60 Australian.

What do you guys think of using this effect for kids?
I was thinking the junior one since it'd be a smaller show...

Hi Mike
Welcome to the magic Café. I do the junior for kids all the time, with krazy knot, and krazy knot finish. I do them as a three trick routine, but be careful what you buy you only need two pieces to do all three tricks. Check with Pavel before you spend too mamy pieces for this routine.

Giving the ends of the rope to audience volunteers could be very imbarrasing, but I see no reason why you couldn't use two lovely assistants.

Yes that is the one that I own, and it works well at a non stage event (parlor, or street), because you do it alone. You can also do the krazy knot, and the krazy knot big finish with it as a three trick routine, but before you invest your money you need less parts if you do them all together, so check with Pavel first.

I have done Simplified Walking Knot fr years with two women from the audience. Having them at the ends of the rope is the motivation for moving the knot to each end and untying it for them to see. It plays VERY STRONG. The volunteers are up-close witnesses (in effect) for the audience which makes the effect that much stronger to the audience. Is it gutsy to use volunteers? Yes. Will they see anything regarding the method? No. (At least in my experience.) I can't imagine doing it any other way that creates as powerful of an effect. The magic is happening in their hands. What could be better?
