The Art of Escape, volume 1 - A Modern Handcuff Act by John Novak

It's a shame Prynce Wheeler's Thoughts and Advice on Handcuffs and Escapes is no longer being marlketed (unless Joe Tanner is still selling a few copies).

Handcuff escapes are a very wide field. Cannon's Great Escapes has several good books on handcuffs; legit and gaffed.

Well your wrong. So search yourself. He does not teach how to get out of cuffs very well at all. He just skims over it.

There are much much better places.

:roll:


Personally, the best way I learned was trail and error. See what works and what doesnt. Try different things, different ways.
A book can only teach/show you so much.

I tought myself. Of course, it was a cheap pair of handcuffs, and I couldn't do it very fast, but oh well.

So your saying he doesn't tell you how to get out of them? Well Harry Houdini studyed them like in this dvd they teach you what and how the handcuffs work. To know how to get out of them you know how they work.

Do you have the DVDs? Do you even know how Houdini studied? It seems like it's a no on both parts.


Daniel- Check out Cannons Great Escapes. You will find a lot of good material there.

You have no real business even giving advice in the area. You dont know what your talking about... so just stop while your ahead.

Your just giving [edited] advice, like you usually do. :roll:

Let me put the late Prynce Wheeler's advice in a quick-and-dirty nutshell:

To be a handcuff king, you must first become a collector of handcuffs, leg Irons and related devices. :!:
