BACK IN STOCK - - - and NOW includes a VIDEO TUTORIAL!
The Color Changing Knife is a time-honored magic
classic. Generally credited to Walter Jeans, it became a popular pocket
trick in the 1930s and has been popular with both amateur and pro
magicians alike ever since. Virtually every pro worker has - at some point in their career - used this venerated effect.
The main reason the Color Changing Knife is a classic of magic and a staple in the repertoire of many professional close-up magicians is that the knives enable the magician to create beautiful and visual magic with seemingly ordinary objects. In today's popular parlance, they're organic. Once you learn the basic technique used in the routine, you'll likely never leave home without a Color Changing Knife set in your pocket!
Here is a brief demonstration of the color change ONLY....
The effect is clear cut: The performer shows a pocket knife to be RED on both sides. With a simple pass through the magician's hand, the knife changes to BLUE. The knife is again shown on both sides to be BLUE. Another pass through the hand changes the knife back to RED on both sides. For the finale', the knife actually penetrates the magicians trousers and ends up in his pocket! The knife may be handed out...it is fully examinable.
Now....personally speaking... I had the good fortune to work close-up magic regularly in restaurants (in additional to other strolling gigs) for several years. I worked two different restaurants three nights a week. It was a real proving ground. My favorite routine - without question - was the Color Changing Knife. In fact, I became *known* in those restaurants and in demand *because* of the knife routine! I couldn't begin to tell you how many repeat customers would come in with a guest and ask, "Do you have your knife tonight?" Or, "Can you show my friend your knife?"
Yes...it was that big a deal. Interestingly enough, the actual routine I performed was as simple as it could be: A red knife changed to blue, then back to red, then penetrated the material on my trousers. Simple. Yet that simple, basic routine provided a canvas for me to get to know my spectators and make them laugh while fooling them. Repeatedly!
I'm including my own personal comedy routine along with this knife set. In the detailed instructions, you'll get all of the funny lines and bits of business. Folks, this routine is a WORKER. And if you can already do the Paddle Move, all you'll need to do is memorize the lines! Now THAT'S a short learning curve!
Frankly, I think the routine alone is worth the price I'm asking for the complete set. But my long-time customers know me better than that! I'm all about the lagniappe ("little bit extra") and when you buy this knife set, you get my routine included along with it for FREE.
Now...the knives themselves.... I LOVE this amazing new set! Why? The shape and the rubberized grip makes the move so much easier, and the size is just right, and the weight is PERFECT. Admittedly, there are LOTS of Color-Changing Knife Sets available today. And quality is subjective. You can pay a LOT for a set that you don't enjoy using, and you can pay just a little for a set you'll never leave home without!
A magic friend makes a beautiful set from real knives. Are they top quality? Yes. My only real quibble with them is that they weigh a LOT. Carrying two of them in a pocket will mean dedication, because when they're in your pocket, you KNOW they're in your pocket! BUT.... this set I'm selling - as I said - is designed to be attached to a keyvhain, so they're LIGHT.. They will NOT weigh you down! They are a perfect pocket size with a 21st century design!
OK, with this outfit, you'll receive THREE matching keychain knives (R/R, B/B and R/B), a velveteen drawstring pouch for carrying the knives, printed instructions featuring a basic color-changing knife routine, PLUS my own personal comedy routine. The custom-manufactured keychain knives are the right shape and weight for ease in performance. Of course, you're welcome to buy this set for the routine only and use your own favored knives. AND NOW.... DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND... You'll also receive a link to an on-line VIDEO TUTORIAL teaching the basic change, the spin change, and the in-the-hand knife transposition. So that's THREE sets of instructions you'll receive with this outstanding knife set.... HOW CAN YOU LOSE?
Each knife measures approximately 2-1/4" x 5/8" x 1/4". Each knife has a cutting blade, a file, and a scissors (along with the split ring to attach to a keychain). These are TOP QUALITY knives!
This complete set is a top shelf bargain.....
