|-||====== Ose's False Cut ======|
|-||This triple, tabled false-cut has been credited to Jay Ose, beginning with Harry Lorayne in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/20030/Close+up+Card+Magic/95|Close-up Card Magic]]//, 1962, p. 93. A remotely related procedure to the cut is described by F. W. Conradi in his //Der Moderne Kartenkünstler//, 1896, p. 19; and repeated in August Roterberg's //[[http://askalexander.org/display/20169/New+Era+Card+Tricks/53|New Era Card Tricks]]//, 1897, p. 45. These three-, four- and five-pile cuts restore the deck to its cyclic order, and a final cut at the original bottom card brings the deck back to its initial order.|
|-||Prior to Conradi, Henri Decremps, in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/5129/Decremps+from+Kaufman/154|Testament de Jérome Sharp]]//, 1785, p. 154 of the Hugard translation, describes another five-packet false cut, the pattern of which is different from that described by Conradi. The closest in concept to Ose's cut is Richard Himber's false cut in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/22997/The+Tarbell+Course+in+Magic+Volume+III/198|The Tarbell Course in Magic, Volume 3]]//, 1943, p. 196, which is a two-packet version of the "Ose" cut.|
|-||And while Jim Swain has claimed the idea of having a spectator do the Ose cut (see //21st Century Card Magic//, 1999, p. 24, and //[[http://askalexander.org/display/25343/MAGIC+MAGAZINE+VOL+12+No+1+6/459|Magic]]//, Vol. 12 No. 4, Dec. 2002, p. 97), he was preceded by a description in Paul Harris's //The Art of Astonishment, Vol. 3//, 1996, p. 300; the basic cut is claimed here to come from //Expert Card Technique//, although this seems an error. The text doesn't clarify whether the idea of a spectator-driven Ose cut was provided by Harris or Long, but in personal conversations with Long, he defers all credit to Harris.|
