Scott Alexander’s C-Fold is just like C4 …its freaking dynamite! This is a super quick, in the hands card fold technique that not only folds the card, but insures the job is done neatly every time. No more weird bends or angles in your folds. C- Fold gets the job done right!

Not only does Scott tip his fold, he also shows you how he uses it in a classic and powerful piece of close up called the Card in Matchbook, made famous by the inimitable Matt Schulien. Scott completely explains his handling and routine for this powerhouse effect. He provides you with comedy lines and the perfect bit of choreography and misdirection to do the dirty work right in front of everyone. He also shows how this versitile fold can be used for other effects, like the Card in Can, and Card In Mouth. C-Fold takes out all the lag time of other more cumbersome card folds.

Finally, Scott unleashes another bit of matchbook magic with a new twist on trick published by Ted Annemann called “Before Your Eyes” which uses a new innovation in conjunction with this weird little piece of mental magic.

Total running time is 30 minutes.
Featuring “Card in Matchbook” and “Before Your Eyes”

I'm very interested in card folds as I really enjoy the card to impossible location plot. My problem with all the folds I've worked with up till this point has been the difficulty in achieving a uniform fold every time. I don't like "knacky" moves or leaving things to chance, especially if there is a switch involved in a routine. To me the effect of a card appearing some impossible place is diminished slightly if it looks like it was sloppily folded in haste and fear of detection. The C fold allows you to utilize your hands and the deck itself in two useful ways...

1) As guides to help you fold cleanly on the vertical and horizontal center lines of the card.
2) As braces to provide leverage for crisp and clean creases.

The C fold is essentially an improvement on John Bannon's creased lightning fold. Scott credits Bannon and quickly runs through the mechanics of creased lightning as well as the mercury fold and Matt Schulien's one handed fold. He also mentions Michael Kaminskas fold (also an off shoot of Bannon's work) which I've been experimenting with lately and must admit I prefer the C fold. One thing I like in particular about the C fold is that it can be broken down into steps and doesn't have to be executed in one move like the standard mercury fold typically is.

Scott teaches the move quickly but thoroughly, demonstrating from multiple angles and with close ups. As an added bonus he gives his work on the card in matchbook and an updated Anneman revelation. I thought both of these additions were solid effects and seemed practical in real world application.

There is no ground breaking thinking here, just really smart practical thinking that comes from real world experience and contemplation. The C fold is a "better mousetrap" and that's all I was looking for. The move will take some practice like any other fold but so far I find it to be the most comfortable of any comparable move I've experimented with.

The preview does not do this justice. This is the only card ffold I’ve tried that doesn’t look like dog poop. It will be the only method I will use from now on. This is slick do yourself a favor and get the download.

Good alternative method for mercury fold, alleviating the problem us older magicians have with our hands getting slicker. He also teaches another utility move as a bonus. I would suggest, since the price is reasonable, that you also check out and buy the KFC fold and decide for yourself which is best if you are looking for an, in my opinion, easier solution for the mercury fold.

Best fold ever! Report this review

I love how fast the Mercury card fold is but they will always come out offset and a little sloppy. For more accuracy, C-Fold is the best and I've already replaced MCF for C-fold in my act.
