THE ORIGINAL KHAN ENVELOPE TEST (eBook)
If you're reading this, or even hearing about it now, understand the gravity of its rarity. This isn't just another effect or routine; it's a piece of mentalism history, a relic from an era when Tony Corinda was revolutionizing the art form.
"For many years, mediums and magicians have delved into effects based on the reading of sealed messages. There are numerous ways by which the performer is able to discover the message or word written on a card sealed in an envelope. These different methods often resolve themselves into techniques which are complicated and risky. Common techniques involve the use of alcohol to make the envelopes transparent, clipboards, and suchlike, to obtain a carbon impression of the word, and fake window envelopes - which cannot be examined and must be handled very carefully - along with a variety of methods to switch or exchange the test envelope.
The Khan Envelope Test has none of these constraints, and I defy anyone to claim it is not the most natural, simple, and yet absolutely certain method in existence.
It is fundamentally natural because no trick or fake equipment is used - everything is as you say it is - "perfectly normal". Moreover, the spectator may examine everything you use and the secret cannot be detected. I do not say you should have everything examined as it is not necessary, but if they insist - you have no troubles."
