Cigar Magic is the result of my investigation into the Cigar From The Purse Routine generally associated with Nate Leipzig (but originally created by G.W. Hunter). I explored different methods including the use of a 'holdout'; which is described in the text. (I finally settled on a routine that does not employ a hold out.) My routine offers a different take on the switch out of the gimmick purse, a new handling of the change over move, producing a second cigar from the purse, and the continuous cigar production that concludes with a production of a bigger cigar. Being a cigar smoker myself; I have also developed routines using the cigar band, the cigar ash, and the cigar itself as a misdirective tool.
