Bob Kohler's Black Envelope

This a slick little effect. Magicians will enjoy it greatly. Card guys will be in heaven.

The general lay public will not find this trick anymore amazing than card in wallet, or card under glass, etc.

I believe that this is more of a magician's trick than a trick for the lay public. You will fool them with it, but it just won't be any slicker than many similar card to impossible location tricks.

The DVD fully explains the trick(s). A few different handlings are explained that will allow everyone from the fumbling beginner to advanced the knuckle-buster to enjoy.

It comes with enough black envelopes to get you started, after that you will either have to order more, make them yourself, or come up with an alternate idea.

Everything is quality. It will only be your personal taste and performing style that will be the final decision on how much you like it. I only give it 3 stars because I do not believe any new ground is really covered here. It is simply repackaging an old trick in a new wrapper. Nicely done, but probably more interesting to the hard core card slingers than the general magic populace.

Manufacturer's Description:

Bob Kohler’s Black Envelope is a truly diabolical secret based on an idea from top Scottish card man Peter Duffie, tipped to Bob by Frank Garcia. In typical Kohler fashion, Bob then honed the concept and created five real-world, practical routines which have all held a steady place in his professional repertoire for over ten years. These are no pipe dreams, what you’ll learn are professional routines which “get the money.” What Can You Do With It? Here is just one of the effects possible: Imagine showing your audience a black, letter-sized envelope, which you place in full view on the table. A card is then selected and signed by a spectator. Instantly, the signed card appears inside of the envelope! And get this-no palming!

The Black Envelope DVD includes detailed explanations to this and four more complete routines, each utilizing the ingenious principle in a completely different way. You’ll learn the methods, moves and even presentations to the routines that Bob has used to fool lay audiences and expert magicians alike for years. Each of the routines vary in skill level from easy to medium difficulty-every magician will find something they can put to use immediately.
