Joe Mogar actually sells a color changing knife DVD. Not very exciting but you learn quite a few moves and routines.

There's a couple of good books on the market.

I own the Mark Wilson DVD. It is actually sold with a set of knives, and is available at Hocus-Pocus.com The price is a bit steep at $59.95 but worth it in my opinion, at least for me since I did not own the knives already. Mark's routine is really good.

Hi Bill

I seem to recall Mark's DVD set came with the smaller knives made along the lines of the Saunders(sp?) knives i.e. black & white (black has the "textured" finish) in your choice of either a two or three knife set.
Nice little knives.

Correct, Julie, except that I believe the sets sold currently are three-knife sets. At first I was disappointed at the smaller size but when I used them I realized this was actually an advantage. The three knives occupy little pocket space and the texture identifies the color by feel. I carried these in my pockets for several weeks at work until I had shown the effect to just about everybody I knew. I get a real kick out of showing the audience how I do it (?) only to do it again and then hand out the two knives for them to examine.

I will second Whit Haydn's Intricate Web of Distraction DVD.....it's great to have along with Whit's Intricate Web of Distraction Booklet.

Whit shows his thinking and reasoning behind his routine and the Mogar knives used are an excellent set.

Whit convinced me to try his knives and his routine here and he was right.....it's terrific.

Strong and entertaining magic!

Whit Haydn's Intricate Web of Distraction DVD is gold. Great routine. I actually learned the routine (and the moves) from his pamplet about 15 years ago. I still love performing the routine.
Peter Biro is right though. the knives lend themselves well to your creativity. Have fun with them. I use Whit's routine if I use them for stage, different routining for closeup.

I got Chad Long's Flash and I found them very easy to use. If you like color changing knives (i love my Mogar knives) then you will love how easy Chad's flash drives are. When I perform in schools, I use Flash so I'm not taking knives to school.

Jcrabtree2007:

I had the DISTINCT PRIVILEDGE of meeting Matt Schulien and seeing him do his version of the color-changing knives in 1965 at a visit to Schulien's on Irving Park Road in Chicago.

Seeing Matt do his version and watching the reactions of the spectators watching Matt was special....and forever influenced my approach to performing Magic.

...and Matt had a unique "built-in" servante' to facilitate holding out and switching said knives. Smile

Julie:

So correct!

Matt Schulien was truly "one of a kind"! His knife routine is in his book.....I highly recommend the book and taking a good look at his routine.

I have never....to this day....seen so many "civilians" have so much fun seeing a magician perform magic as I saw at Schuliens.

Matt had 'em going with "tears in their eyes" they were laughing so hard and having so much fun.

Johnny Thompson's routine from his DVD set is the best I have seen.

Bill Malone have a good one (if you are a gifted entertainer!)
Whit Haydn published a very good routine
But (I know it's not a DVD) if you are really interested by the subject, the book from Ascanio on the subject is an absolute must (now in english, lucky you!)

Flash in my opinion is really good. I don't have the knives but It teaches a good routine that can be applied to the knives
