I know a handful of them, but I only do three of them:

Hands to Table False Cut in Close-Up Illusions Gary Ouellete~
Running False Cut in Expert At The Card Table~
Up the Ladder False Cut by Martin Nash Charming Cheat Video~

What are your favorites ? And where do you find them.

My favorite is probably the Henry Gavin false cut - The large Jordan book by Fulves.
One favored by Vernon, hands to table, not sure where it appeared, been doing it so long.

Not a big fan of the multiple cuts

I do an in-the-hands false cut that Aldo Colombini taught me in 1993. He told me that it was unpublished and it had no name, that I could call it anything I wanted. I came up with a name and I even told him the name in an e-mail message I sent him a long time ago, but it went unanswered. I called it the AC-EZ false cut. AC for Aldo Colombini and EZ for easy... in case you did not get it...

Probably he published it later but I haven't found it yet...

For in the hands, the FT Cut from Garcia's Million Dollar Card Secrets.

For a tabled cut, the Gambler's False Cut from Garci's Super Subtle Card Secrets.

I also use a cut that begins like a pass, but the top portion of the deck is taken around and under the bottom half to be put back on top. It seems to me that I might have learned it from Richard Kaufman's tape on the pass. Not sure though.

There's a couple of good ones in Ben Earl's Past Midnight DVD.

I think that was a  T.G. Murphy idea from a book of his years back.

Paul, I think you may be right as I had that book for a time.

Ose False Cut from Lorayne's Close-Up Card Magic.
I also like the triple cut to the table I've often seen Harry do. I think it's either Frank Thompson's or Harvey Rosenthal's.
In the hands, I like the Pirandello Cut from Frank Simon's Variations.

I second the Pirandello Cut for in the hands. It's very fooling and also feels nice to do [smile]

My favourite, for its simplicity and naturalness, is Bobby Bernard's false cut. I think I learned it from a Jerry Sadowitz publication.

Lewis Jones "The Castlemaine Control(persona), the Flying Cut by Dave Forrest and a little known one by Joe Dignam called 'Counterfeit(spellbinder) are three of my favorites. The Widdershins Cut by Nick Conticello is another good one.

I say the favorite is whichever one goes with the trick I am using it for. There are so many choices for cuts and/or shuffles. Sometimes I use a push thru, most of the time I control with faro and jog shuffles. I do two different in the hands false cuts. One that Malone does where the middle packet is flipped over and the other one is my own cut. I like the Up the River running cut false cut. That one is strong. As far as resources for where the cuts can be found? Darn near every classic magic book out there. And I am sure there are tons of videos for them. Sounds like you are not really looking for new ones, but just asking everyone's choices, well these are mine and they have served me well.

I played with that years ago, think it was also previously in print in the Bobby Bernard book. Trouble is now, I don't actually remember it. Did the cut happen as you were turning the cards face up?

I highly recommend Denis Behr's version of Pit Hartling's "Chaos Cut". It's called the "Chaotic Chaos Cut" and it can be found in his book, "Handcrafted Card Magic - Volume 2" (page 30).
