I love it. I really love it, guys.

But alas, it still doesn't make ham sandwiches.

Shucks!

We may laugh, but this product may signal to magicians that making giant obnoxious "X" on the back of a card isn't the best idea ever Smile

It seems like it's more for creating decks that have a uniform crimp in them rather than creating a single crimp. I've seen work like this before, but usually someone bent the devil out of the deck before doing the work. A tool is interesting, but it seems to me that this is more labor intensive than just crimping the deck yourself. I will be interested to see what people do with this now that the idea of the work is more widely known thanks to the marketing of this tool.

PM for beard tips.

This creates a full deck crimp, like Mexican Joe's crimp but without the wave. It takes 5 minutes to make a deck.
You guys really should learn to read.

Pretty sure a Mexican Joe crimp can be put into a deck for free, and in about 5 seconds - which is kind of the point.
Everybody here reads just fine, they just don't fawn over magicians toys, or said toys creators.

Having said that, I hope you sell a thousand of them to magicians everywhere!

Without the wave effect formed when poker players rise up and down from their seats in succession when playing Mexican stud?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

According to Dai Vernon "Mexican Joe" used this method on a whole deck for cheating in card games.
For me, that is pretty good source.

Using this device I believe is a lot more consistence, subtle, and precise then free form in the hands bending.

I have an interest and passion for ALL forms and items concerning card/dice cheating, including the entertainment aspect.
This was just my small contribution to bring this to the attention for those that have similar views.

Do you really think that this "Mexican Joe" ever existed? Can you imagine an adult going with a moniker like that? Dai Vernon was a terrific Magician, who could deny that? But he told so many self-invented stories... There's another one, funny as well, "the mysterious kid". Just imagine that kind of conversation:

- Hi, I'm Mexican Joe, How do you do?
- Hi, I'm the Mysterious Kid, How do you do?

AMcD - I respect your input, as you well proven your skills and knowledge.
I am not an expert on Vernon, I can not prove or disprove his claims.

I would like to point out that his life experiences come from a different time and the nick names seem silly nowadays, but were accepted at that time.

Real organize crime figures often use nicknames, like John Gotti AKA Dapper Don.
"Hi, I am the Dapper Don"
"Really? That's a silly nickname" (I doubt few would say that in person).
Pretty certain neither Gotti or Joe, introduced themselves that way.

If you believe Vernon made up all the card cheats he talks about, okay, I still have interest for the entertainment level. Still, they may be what actually happen. So, yes I do believe he is telling the truth.

Of course Vernon made up stories lol, hundred of them. I'm gonna give you a hint. Say you want one of your sleight to get some credibility among the very gullible crowd of Magicians. What are you gonna do? Say it comes from the gambling table! From a guy named "Ricky Golden Rings" or "Bobby 12 Guns". Don't forget to mention that he made $12,678,963 with it. Don't worry, it's gonna work. It's 115 years they believe Erdnase was a cheat.

PS: Frankly, "Dapper Don", I don't see what is ridiculous there. An ADULT nicknamed "The Mysterious Kid" seems, to me, another thing.

I cannot attest to the veracity of the names that Vernon came up with or his stories. However, these mock fancy names are and were used. Not by the persons who these names were attached to, but by others.

For example, Jackie Newton, a very capable hustler was called Little Jackie Newton or Little Jackie because he was short. Of course, he did not refer to himself as such.

Mob boss Joe Bonano was called "Joey Bananas," Tony Spilotro was called "Tony the ant," mob boss Joe Lombardo was call "Joey the Clown" and so on. Actually these mock fancy names are in some ways a sign of respect and at one time were pretty commonly used.

For all I know they are still used in some quarters or among certain ethnic groups.

But please, no Calamitous Cag or Cagey Cag, althougt it does have a certain ring to it. Smile

Can someone explain to me how a Mexican Joe crimp, or a breather crimp of the entire deck can be used at the gaming tables? I'm talking about the entire deck now, not individual cards in the deck.

I can see it being used for the entire deck as a one way deck or in lieu of using wedge strippers for magic tricks, but how is an entire deck crimp used as a gambling ploy?

@Cag aka the courteous counter

And above all, NOBODY is gonna notice anything if the deck if fully crimped, noooo, nobody. All gamblers are dumb idiots, it's a known fact. This story is certainly not made up, absolutely not...
