Are both the same thickness? I've seen this performed with a very thick rope.

I bought one (I guess the simplified - it was about $80 if I remember right) and what came to me was a thin piece of cheap, stiff rope. Also the gimmicks were very poorly painted. It was such junk I sent it back. Not sure what happened, I expected quality. Maybe a knock-off??? Mr Tillford refunded my money; but was not very nice about it.


Buy directly from Pavel - his quality and service are excellent.
We are all about as successful as we choose to be.

Could someone tell me what size (thinkness) your rope for the routine is? 1/4"? 1/2"?

Thanks!

Pavel's rope tricks are meticulously crafted using thick, white, high quality rope. I would guess you got a knock off. I have his Crazy Knot but like an idiot I lost one of the pieces in moving some things around and have not been able to find it since. Smile

I can also speak for Pavel's quality.
All of his items are crafted beautifuly My walking knot can be performed 6 feet from an audience, it really is a great trick and in my veiw a perfect addition to any stage illusion show.
I have the super version but I agree that for a silent performer the simplified version is better.

Kind Regards

3/8" I think. I have one but never cared to measure it.
Big tip...Keep it clean! Dusting the stage will help loads.

Yes all the Pavel rope tricks that I know of are made with 3/8" rope. Pavel sells a DVD with all of the rope tricks that he sells on it, and they are performed by Pavel himself. Even though this is a three year old thread, the answer is, there are three versions of Pavels walking knot:
1. the super walking knot.
2. the simplified walking knot.
3. the junior walking knot.
I have the junior walking knot/krazy knot, with the krazy knot finale, the finale is an extra finish. The two routines, with the finale were made to be performed together.

If you google it you'll find a version by Jay Scott Berry somewhere. It contains a lot of mumbo jumbo patter which I don't like much but the handling is smooth.

For my own amusement I managed to construct a version with m*****s which I think will stand up to scrutiny from around 10 feet.

Didn't Greg Frewin use it in his dove act... used his fingers to cut the rope?

I think the Greg Frewin rope routine is one of those innumerable variations of "Sandsational"...

Thanks Al. Good to be in the Café.

rjenkins, thanks for the video of Jay Scott Berry. Along with the video on youtube, it was very helpful to see two different approaches to the Walking Knot.

I just LOVE this effect. Ordering one today....

Got the Simplified Super Walking Knot, a few days back. It is fantastic. Thanks to Magic Café, I made an informed decision.

Hey incompletefaro
I suggest you look into Krazy Knot, and the Krazy Knot finale, which is an extention of the walking knot.

Has anyone used this with two audience members? What are the + and - of doing this?

Thanks,

Apropos of nothing but I just have to throw this in:

I saw an ebay listing for "Walking Through a Rope" starting at $40. I realized by close examination of the photo that this was actually Pavel's Super Walking Knot. I was the only bidder and picked it up for $40.

The best buy I ever made in magic!
