-====== K.M. Move ====== 
-The K.M. move was devised by Tony Kardyro and Ed Marlo, and jointly published in //The K.M. Move//, 1962, p. 2. It has its roots in the fingertip version of the [[slip cut]]. More directly, it has a predecessor in a move of Charles Jordan's in "Sympathetic Sympathy" from //Four Full Hands of Down to the Minute Magical Effects//, 1922, p. 27 of the 1947 edition. Jordan would hold two packs of cards, and then pull the top card of the upper pack down to the top of the lower pack during a wrist kill. The K.M. Move uses the identical actions, but with two cards instead of two decks.
