First published in 1902 by S.W. Erdnase, the Diagonal Palm Shift - a secret maneuver for bottom palming a selected card placed into the middle of the deck - is explained in detail by one of this generations most beloved sleight of hand artists, Ricky Smith.
Although he would argue otherwise, we think Ricky does the move better than anyone and could not be more pleased with this exposé on one of our favourite sleight of hand techniques.
In addition to the video tutorial we’ve included a copy of the original write-up which we suggest reading first. It’s only three pages so won’t take long. The video itself is nearly an hour and features an extremely detailed explanation from multiple angles along with guidance towards finding a plethora of variations and tricks from magicians such as John Carney, Dai Vernon, Bill Kalush, Paul Chosse and David Ben to name a few.
