Okito Box.... Really?



Straight from the dealers advertisement:
"The Argentinean master of magicians Kartis, designed his own Okito box over 30 years ago. He performed his coins routines in hundreds of shows using this box. Now, after having keped the secret for most of his life, he has decided to shared his box with the magic community."


As it was pointed out to me via email:
"What exactly is "new" about this. Aside from His poor
technique, this routine is old idea with the David Roth
Rim steal added (and he does it badly anyway). Who
would buy this based on this video?"


I agree. Mind you this cost 60 bucks. I highly doubt that this advertisement is good for sales. His palm a 1:10... now here is something that shouts "Look at my hand, it's totally empty."

60 bucks?? I've never owned an okito box, let alone performed or even read a routine. And yet this is obviously okito 101 stuff.

His own version? I can't see anything new about it, can you?

Kartis is a Great magician, but thid video clearly does not do him justice. I encourage you not to base your oppinion on this.

That video is not the Kartis box, it's the regular Okito box.
