How to quickly uncrimp cards?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Karlabos, Nov 15, 2017.

  1. So whenever I start using the decks a lot it naturally will create some crimps here and there, which is confusing whenever I want to use the crimp as a card control.
    So is there a quick way to uncrimp the cards so that after uncrimping the next crimp I do is the only one remaining?

    thx
     
  2. Do you mean a crimp or a bend in the cards?
     
  3. He means a click-the natural annoying bend that happens to the whole deck after lots of exposure to moisture/heat. To remove the click, it is really hard. Try lots of springs faro shuffles with bridges etc. Homer Liawag has a way that works for him, and Lloyd Barnes has a way where you take half the deck face up and half facedown and keep shuffling it. They don't work sometimes though.
    A crimp is something different. It is a bend in a single card and is a powerful tool. Classic force a crimped card, and look away. Then let the spectator shuffle as many times. Then you can do a variation of finger flicker by Pit Hartling xD.
     
  4. I don't think he's talking about the annoying click because he mentions using the crimps in controls. If this is the case crimp one card and use it over and over again like a key card. I use the breather crimp on the 5 of diamonds as I feel like it outlines the placement of the crimp well.

    If you are using a general corner crimp just be very light and it should come out if you are using a good durable deck. If not, you may be using a crimp that is meant to be permanent.
