You do ring and rope using the scissors as the ring? I've not come across that before - is it your idea or have others also done it?

Jeff Sheridan has a scissors onto knot move which is nice, it's on Genius At Work. I thought I had another reference somewhere for this type of effect but I can't find it. Martin Gardner had some ideas for penetrations using scissors, and they made it into Stewart James's Encyclopedia.

Yes I've seen the Martin Gardner scissor thing in the Fulves book but it's looked more like a puzzle than magic. I'm wondering how many ring moves could be adapted to a scissor "ring".

Well I tried out my new rope routine at a gig tuesday evening which involves the spectator cutting the rope with an invisible knife and it went really well,meaning I don't usually get a round of applause for the rope just being cut but on that evening I got applause for the rope being cut on every table.

I saw Jeff Sheridan's Scissors and rope shortly after I began working it out myself. Not his knot penetration, of course, but the idea in general. I have adapted all the moves I liked in my ring and rope to it (Mostly from Flip), Then added Jeff's. One day when I get a digital camera I will try to upload something on You Tube. I think it looks really nice, and gives another angle for presentation.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread. But I do prefer cutting the rope, however I have nothing against the other way. Different tastes, that's all.

Josh, are you talking about the Swan Lake rope routine? I can't speak for others, but I would absolutely LOVE to see a video of it, especially if you do it with that same attitude that he had...

I don't do his routine at all. Aside from the fact that I can't be silent, I only use the knot penetration.

I was referring to my take on ring and rope using scissors. Nothing groundbreaking. Just as an alternative. I have a psychotic desire to try to make sure all my props can do more than one thing.

Whoops. Misunderstood. Sorry about that.

Wouldn't mind seeing a Youtube video anyways, if you get around to it.

Yikes! If you're going to try a ring (ala scissors) and rope routine be sure and do as Al and I do and round off the points!
