The Blind Marking System is a powerful tool in the hands of the right magician. It allows you to know the top card OR the bottom card of any pile you hold in your hand, using touch alone, without the need for peeking or shiners – even if you’re completely, honestly blindfolded!
The marks are punched into the card stock, located on opposite corners just like the indices of a standard playing card and are on both the faces and the backs of the cards. They do require a delicate sense of touch to read, so the Blind Marking System isn’t for every magician, but for those with a sensitive sense of touch, many swear by it.
And if that wasn’t enough, the deck is also a “breather deck.”
Breather decks are something different, something that can even fool many magicians. The ENTIRE deck is crimped by Don Boyer, the Deck Tailor, but the crimps are OFFSET – not in the centre but just below it, using a special tool that makes a smoothly-uniform, nearly-invisible bump. It handles like a stripper deck; when these crimps are all aligned, everything looks pretty normal. Once your spectator selects a card, you place it in the deck reversed and hold the deck in a mechanic’s grip – that’s when something very cool happens.
Your spectator sees absolutely nothing strange, no card edge peeking out from one of the sides or corners – but that reversed crimp, out of alignment with the others, creates “the pinky break without the pinky” on your end of the deck, away from prying eyes! Better still, you can shuffle the deck just like a stripper deck and that break will “follow” your card, no matter how many times you shuffle, allowing you to cut to it with ease.
Are you into cool flourishes? The gap that the reversed card creates makes it super easy to perform a Charlier Cut right to the spectator’s chosen card – how cool is that?
This deck is no “one-trick pony” – it’s a handcrafted gaffed deck that’s a real worker’s tool, versatile enough to use for almost any trick or environment, but equipped with powerful secrets that will make you look like you’re performing miracles! Add this deck to your arsenal today. Each deck comes with access to the Deck Tailor’s “secret lair” – a private section of his website with downloadable instructions.
NOTE: This deck is meant for experienced magicians, especially those practised in the use of marked decks and card control decks.
