Topic: On the Loose Volumes 2 and 4, Color Changing Knives
Message: Posted by: rlk7 (Apr 7, 2004 05:08PM)
Hi, I am interested in Bill Malone's second and fourth videos in this series. I am especially interested in the Bill to Lemon. I'm not sure if the bill to lemon on Ammar's Money Miracles (volume three) DVD is the same?

Also, I want to do Bill's version of the color-changing knives. Would Daryl's Color Changing knives work for that routine? Or would I need a different type? Thanks a bunch. ~Ryan

I'm not familiar with the Bill in Lemon routines, but I can tell you that Daryl's Knife Set will not work the same as you follow the Malone routine.

Daryl's routine was worked about because he hated the style of color changing knives used in Bill's routine and many other peoples. I like Daryl's, but the knives are very thick (hard to do the paddle move with) and it's hard to alter the routine. I use Bill's routine all of the time and the routine uses the standard w/w w/b set. The best part, he leaves everything inspectable.

As for the Bill in Lemon routine, this is one of my favorite, because it can even be used in walk around and the bill can be signed. I don't like the types that use serial numbers; it just doesn't seem impressive. Bill's has a great load, production of the lemon, and good plot.

OK, what particular type of color-changing knives do you recommend? I saw the "Morris knives", and they looked OK. I don't want to spend big money.

Thanks.

The set that I have is like $10, and it's the kind that Malone uses. I bought it at my local shop. I'm not sure where online, though.

If you live in an area of high humidity, those cheap knives will rust very quickly, actually, they'll begin to rust right in your pocket; I also have a Mogar set, the same set that Whit recommends, but I hardly use them, I prefer taking the cheap ones with me everywhere;
