Seattle's underground card mechanic, Jack Carpenter, sits down at the table to teach three of his favorite original sleights. The Carpenter Shuffle is a beautiful strip-out false shuffle sequence, that you'll be practicing in no-time. The Le Claire Pass breaks down the usual action of shifting the pack into separate pieces, allowing you to show and handle the cards in a very fair manner. And Jack's final sleight, The World's Fastest Center Steal, is just that, an automatic steal from the center of the pack.


Customer reviews for Carpenter's Sleights







The question posed to open this video is, "Do I need another false shuffle? No you don't." This is a lie! You do need the Carpenter shuffle. In my opinion, that false shuffle is worth the price of this alone. The World's Fastest Center Steal is brilliant as well. Buy this!



These are three practical and useable sleights, all well taught in the video. And I fully endorse everything Scott said in his excellent review.Anyone with just three intermediate competencies in fact will find them very easy - a soft tabled riffle shuffle for the totally convincing false shuffle, a thumb spring spread for the novel pass and the Erdnase pinkie break and regular palm for the fast and invisible centre steal.Highly recommended, especially if you want to fool your magician friends!

Although just under 20 minutes in length, this tutorial provides clear, concise explanation for three (3) practical sleights that even a newer acolyte of card magic should be able to master with a reasonable amount of practice.

Jack Carpenter's relaxed style will help set the viewer at ease and remove any feelings of intimidation. Each segment features close-up, unobstructed views of the cards in hand --- from the performer's perspective --- enabling the student to easily grasp the concept and mechanics involved with each move.

If you want a tutorial for learning three sleights that will likely have good use in your card magic, I would highly recommend this video. As with any sleight or effect, one must practice these faithfully to ensure good technique prior to actual use. But, these are not knuckle-bustering moves that are beyond the average layman's abilities.





These sleights are very deceptive and a bit quirkyand a bit challenging. NOT FOR A BEGINNER. Also a table is required for several af the sleights and I find myself usually lacking a table and working from my pockets. Somethiinig thats good to file away for future study.
