The late and great Imam Hossain used to
perform an effect he called "The Knife".
The effect was that he would slam his hand
repeatedly down on the very sharp blade of a knife.

I would like to learn this effect.
Does anyone have any knowledge of it or knows where I can learn it?

Please PM me if you do.
There will be a finders fee reward.

This was one of the signature routines of Imam's. It was never published or sold. He did teach it to one person. There was to be a instructional video of Imam's material but he died before they could be put together. There might be some private video of Imam doing the routine, but I have never seen any footage of it. I watched him do it many, many times.

I've never heard of him before this thread. Now, I've looked him up on YouTube, and he's doing a beautiful routine with an idea I recently started playing with.

Saww him do this same routine on the best of magic tv show about 25 years ago. Very entertaining.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

De-ja vu!.... I thinkTodd answered your question (to an extent) maybe send him a PM?

But thanks for asking seems like you have introduced him to several who had never seen him.

Hi! Sorry about bringing out this 3 years old post but I was searching for information about Imam and saw here these 2 links to Youtube, both now "private". Is there someone who has access to this material? Did someone found the footage, which Todd mentions?
Thank you!
