TL;DR: Even semi-serious magicians know that the "mercury card fold" is indispensable. Today, Michael Kaminskas has published a new technique that will replace it.

"Michaels new card folding technique is a superb and very sneaky technique that card guys will love!" -John Carey

"Mike taught his KFC at a lecture at my place last year. To say it was a hit was quite an understatement. It is one of the best, most practical methods of folding a card that I have ever seen...or in this case never seen. This is a method that most magicians will find far easier than the classic Mercury Card Fold and many will be adopting this as their preferred method. Try Mike's KFC...its Finger Flickin' Good!" -Marc DeSouza

Not only is KFC a ground-breaking move for card magicians, but Mike is teaching a routine straight out of his professional repertoire, so right away you'll be able to add it to your act.

Fantastic Fold! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2018
I have been performing the Mercury fold for years. It is a tried and true principle and I am very good at it. That said, when performing for magicians, it stands out. This new fold gets you to the same place but with an entirely different method. I can't wait to try this out. Great video, nice pdf and several routines. Very well done and highly recommended.

This will be your new favorite card fold Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2018
I don't give 5 stars unless there is something that really stands out. In this case there are 2 things that stand out. The first, and it may be jus the that appreciates it, is that you get both an 18 minute video and a 9 page pdf, with that teach the move. You can learn from the video then follow along in the pdf as you work through it. To me this is a big plus.

Second, this is an improvement on what we all take from granted. we've all struggled through the mercury card fold, ending up with sloppy results and suspicious moves. this fixes that, you are doing the fold right in front of them as they are burning your hand, and it is sooo clean.

a few routines that use this move are taught, all of them card to impossible location. Moth, coin purse, Altoids-like tin, any impossible location. Mike's thoughts on that are invaluable.

Buy this, you won't regret it.

The Mercury Card Fold has always been one of my favorite moves so I was interested in seeing this update. The big selling point was that it can be done in action. In thinking about it, already do my MCF in action and I thought everyone did. I'm honestly surprised that most people don't. Hey Penguin! Want me to release my in action Mercury Fold with you? 😂

The angles are fantastic but I think the angles on the Mercury Fold are better.

It seems to me like this is slightly quiter than a Mercury Fold but that will probably depend on your speed.

It does require two actions instead of one and it is slightly harder.

A big advantage is that you can do a face down fold from a face down deck. For some routines that's a massive plus.
Although it isn't taught, a slight shift will make the card folded with the face out for those who prefer it that way.

One thing worth noting is that it folds the card the other way first which may or may not suit your interests.

While it's not a hard move it is harder than a Mercury Fold. It is however, slightly easier to do neatly.

All in all, your mileage will vary. Some will consider this a life changer. Others will wonder why it was released. If you're unhappy with your Mercury Card Fold, by all means by it. If you're happy with yours, skip it unless you have a routine that requires getting a face in card folded from a face down deck.

Love this alternative method of folding Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2018
As a magician that frequently struggles with the mercury fold, I found KFC to be a welcomed gift for producing a fold with an easier method.

Michael Does a fantastic job teaching this effect. I'm already practicing it as I have several tricks that need a more polished fold effect such as KFC.

While it's always good to have more than one way to skin a cat. What difference does the method make if no one ever sees it? KFC is a great fold, but, so is the MCF. I can't in all fairness say one is easier than the other. They both take a considerable amount of effort to learn. (At least for me anyway.) KFC or POPEYE'S it's all chicken to me. Take your pick.

Is the world ready for another card fold? Report this review

I thought I wasn't but now ... You got to love a card fold that can be done under fire - one that doesn't need a Malini moment. Could it be true? Yes it is. I used it doing some walk-around magic and doing parlor magic at a festival. Worked great and fit into pacing better than MCF. Video was well taught. The tricks taught are practical and could be applied in many ways. The hardest part of learning KFC was unlearning MCF. Regardless, this is a great card fold to add to your arsenal

Not above the Mercury Fold Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2018
This is a nice video and the move is very well explained and shown. There is no doubt that this will deliver a card folded into quarters right into your hand.
I have been using the mercury fold for years and have done it at paid gigs thousands of times. I don't think that this is better than the M Fold. You may find it better or easier, I didn't.
All in all a good download, but it won't be taking the place of my Mercury fold (or the Scarne fold for those who are interested).

The most practical card fold Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2018
I don't do card folds at present, but one day I might need the technique, hence I bought the download. I was so impressed with Michael's method and its simplicity that I can't wait to practice it on one of my increasing number of old card decks with which I am wondering what do do.
The demonstration is first class. The effects taught along with the technique are awesome.
I am so glad yet again that I purchased KFC

Worth the investment Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2018
Like many others, I struggled with the mercury fold. The actions seemed unnatural, and I can usually spot it a mile away when I see another magician do it. The KFC fold seems much more natural, so I will be investing my time on this fold from now on.

(On a side note, I HIGHLY recommend using the KFC in conjunction with The Bullet by Todd Lamanske for assisting with perfect folds. Trust me, you'll love it and your folds will be consistently perfect.)

As for the quality of the instruction, Michael does a good job. He comes across as being nervous and maybe could have benefitted from a second take, but the information is solid and you get the benefit of learning a nice method of getting the selected card into position.

Nice work, Michael. Thanks for sharing!
