I used to use KK years ago stopped using it. I just never found the one off idea as strong as others have.

KK Kills.

Greg Arce has a killer version called Scorched in one of his e-books I believe.

I do an 8 card version with my regular wallet. If you are going to do the full version then you probably need a KK wallet/Heirloom wallet.

There are also 4 card versions which can be done with a regular wallet too.

I love this effect and the one off is a killer ending, I do have the original KK wallet and I feel it is just a little to big and would like one smaller. I also own Bang On and KK is a lot more practical and using only the 8 way version it is faster too.

The effect never fails to amaze -- it is so strong to most people I've performed it on, I have to be careful what follows it. I've had people ask to keep the card afterwards!

I've done this with 2 different wallets - one from Walmart, and the one I have up for sale here on the Café, which is especially for this effect

The dedicated Heirloom/Kolossal Killer wallet is definitely a plus, and can be used for other effects as well, although it's mostly useful for the KK or Heirloom effects. I love the one I have for sale, it just doesn't have enough credit card slots to double as my regular full-time wallet.

The real advantage with this effect is not having to fumble for the card. So any wallet that enables you to do this is the perfect wallet. Frankly, I haven't tried the "scaled down" version of this effect, so I've used "all" the cards.

You do not need a special wallet, your wallet does need to be a double fold vs. a tri fold. I would get the routine and then take a few cards, go look at some wallets and see what you like the best. I used to do this all the time and didn't even know there was a special wallet. (Well a little lie, I knew about heirloom, but if KK has his own which is different I didn't know that.)

With the money you will save from not spending $150 you can buy this:

I just started using Kolossal Killer, its such a stunning effect, using my normal eveyday wallet, it works perfectly. A normal looking wallet that people accually use everyday lends heavly to the deception. One thing about it is quickly becomeing one of my favorite effects.

I just found Kolossal Killer with the "official certified wallet"

Did someone purchased it and is there a difference to "regular" wallets?

Kenton Knepper's Classic Kolossal Killer

Kolossal Killer has long been one of Kenton Knepper's favorite creations.

What is the Kolossal Killer effect? Spectator just NAME'S a playing card, and you have the correct card in your wallet! YOU ARE ALWAYS CORRECT! It is the ultimate card "out" for close-up work. The spectator can mess with you all they want - RELAX - you can still produce a playing card from your wallet, as absolute proof that you knew their card all along!


Kolossal Killer has become a classic piece of mentalism and is used by such pros as Larry Becker, Terry Seabrooke, Allan Ackerman and Jeff McBride. It is both a close up and full-blown stage effect, with nothing more than the minds of the audience and your everyday looking billfold wallet required.

NO Forces. NO Sleight of Hand, NO 52 Card Index (Not 26 cards either)... Whatever they name, you are right!


Simple, direct, awe inspiring magic and mentalism - the kind you have come to expect from Kenton Knepper.


This couldn't be easier or more diabolical. Only a very select few have been privileged to own Kenton's Kolossal Killer - until now. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!


Get the complete original work with all the devious touches in this 16 page manuscript and for the first time the "Official Kolossall Killer wallet certified by Kenton Knepper".


Forever more you will have a truly ground-breaking reputation making effect, not "up your sleeve", but in your wallet!


Comes complete with the wallet, cards, specially made envelopes and 16 page
manuscript.


Price: £75.00

I think this is one of my favorite effects. I can always count on it to slay anyone, especially wise asses and I have further adapted the principle to create a miracle similar to a David Berglas effect. Kenton is a genious here.. absolutely brilliant. I couldn't recomend this more. The reactions are complete disbeleif. No card trick I do or have done gets the same reaction. Actuially don't buy it... you wont like it.

I have however added some further thought to his ideas and expanded the trick. An example that almost made my brother have a heart attack. He is familar with many magic methods. I called him up on the phone saying I have learn't how to read minds real this time and this was on the border of no longer being a trick:) I told him to think of any card and change his mind atleast 5 times until he was completly satisfied that I could never ever know it and it was a free choice. I said I'd be home I half an hour and he should use this time to finalise and think about his choice, speculate over it and make sure than any psychological doubt of a mental force was out his mind. This allowed him to become heavily invested in the effect emotionally and to think about it and build it up in his own mind before I even got there. I use this idea frequently for booking gigs, or doing something with the birthday girl etc..

When I arrvied home after some banter I said. You have the card in your mind and only your know it right? Name the card for the first time out loud. He names the card and I tell him to feel my jean pants pocket. He can feel only one card inside..I can see himn building it up in his mind, already he is telling himslef that that would be impossible!!! I reach in a pull out his thought of card. He almost diead of a heart attack.. That is the first time in years since Paul Harris's coin penetration thru a tic tac box that my brother has complelty gone white from shock.

Thanks Kenton!

Its awesome!!!

I use a scaled down version with my Stealth Assassin wallet.

It always blows peoples minds!!!

I even prefer to be "o*f b* o*e" (i know some doent like that part of it but I think it adds humour and more disbelief to the effect)

Not all Kentons works are for me but this has been with me since I first got it.

Peace & Love
