I am going to add my recommendation for Whit's Intricate Web of Distraction. I do a variant of it. also have a set of the Bone Mogar Knives. The jigged handle makes gooing into and out of your pocket a no brainer. High marks for both!!

Can't wait to get the DVD of Whit's routine.
Never been to the Castle to see him live.
This may be as close as I get.

I have performed color changing knives for over forty years. I use Joe Mogar's knives and really like them. The finest routine using the knives IMHO is the routine Juan Tamariz does in one of the three videos of his giving several lessons. I think it is the first of the three videos. Juan uses a move called the ultra fast turnover. It is not a paddle move and it is very tough to make it look right, but when it is right it is awesome.. I remember mentioning to one of my magician friends that the move that Tamariz uses is darn near impossible. His remark to me was "for you it might be impossible, but for Tamariz it is no problem." I have been working on the ultra fast turnover for months and little by little I think I am beginning to make the move work. Then again I wonder when I am working in front of a mirror if I don't just shut my eyes at the critical second. Someday I will try it with a real spectator and then of course I will know. But the best routine for color changing knives, my vote is for Juan Tamariz.

Actually, the Tamariz color-changing knife routine is on his Stevens video -

and you're right - it's one of those "knack" things. It'd does look great when Juan does it, though!

I hope Howie Swatrzman does get his book put together. A few years ago I was privileged to spend the day with him up in the Baltimore area. He did a one-finger color change that was awesome and not that difficult.

Another source that is worthy of mention is Daryl's on his "Fooler Droolers" series (#1 of 3). There is actually a lot of good stuff on those dvd's!

Daniel hit on I think one of the most underrated DVD series and that is Dary's Fooler Dooler , Maybe its the name that throws people off thinking it only a pub/bar/party Stunt or a betcha type video. Daryl has a lot of great routines including his CC knife in there.

I am from Memphis and I met Richard "Dick" Oakley in the early 80's. He was a great influence on my performance ability. His attitude towards "magic" and particularly "magicians" is rather harsh, to say the least. When asked, "why don't you perform anymore.. you should!!" He would growl back, "I hate magic!" .. or something to that flavor. Nevertheless, whenever I would drop in at The Fun Shop, or the other shop he sometimes positioned himself, he was never without something new to show me. We'd spend tons of "back n forth" time together. He was never without time to show how I could improve a handling of a trick.

I will never forget the first time I saw his version of the CC Knives routine. Took my breath away. I have a set of Sanders knives and use them in a very similar routine Richard used. The only two shops in Memphis that USED to sell magic, only have costumes for rent with mostly some gag gift items for sell. They've pretty much gone to online venues for selling magic items. So, finding Richard in a shop demonstrating some of the common tricks that he made an artform and pleasure to watch, (penny to dime, pyschic block, chinese sticks, etc) is probably gonna not happen.

Well, that's my Richard Oakley story. I still perform in the Nashville and MidSouth doing conventions and private corporate gigs. I owe 99% of my performance ability to Richard. Thanks!!

Welcome, JGDay, to the Café! I look forward to reading more posts in the future.

L&L Publishing just released another DVD in their Worlds Greatest Magic series on the Color Changing Knives. Among other routines included on this DVD is Daryl's routine. This looks like a nice addition to one's magic library if they do, or want to, perform the CC knife routine.

Skip this one. I bought it after reading this post - and this is a disappointing DVD. The DVD is short and the best routing on it is Daryl's - and it requires a subsequent outlay for custom knives.
