I have traveled extensively, I have interacted with many people from many countries, some speak English, so do not.
I find it sad that so many people are calling for understanding, without giving any.
Motown, thank you fir the wonderful link.

Actually, there is! One such routine was printed in the Linking Ring Magazine (September 1944). It uses just the one knife.

Well, 1944, I wasn't born yet, so in three years, 1947, I did not join the IBM. Even if I could, you could no get back copies or download them yet. My mother would not let me play with knives, anyway.

The foreigners that do speak English and Write English want to learn. The foreigners that do not, don't want to learn and therefore forget what they were taught. Those that do, get work on the military bases, those that did not, didn't get hired. When in Vietnam, the military increased the value of the Vietnamese currency to more then the American dollar, so the countries currency value prospered the Vietnamese people.

Doc Eason’s routine uses just 1 knife if anyone cares.

Meir Yedid mentioned that he performs a one knife routine when table hopping. It is unpublished at this time. He discussed it in one of his newsletters when promoting a "Hot Rod" style color changing knife. Meir's discussion of it in the newsletter is complete enough for someone to build a short routine.

I have a one knife routine using a Joe Mogar Hot Rod knife that is similar to Meir's (independently developed). It is based something that Joe Mogar was doing over 20 years ago at his dealer's booth when pitching the Hot Rod Knife. I haven't written my little routine up anywhere since it is basic and quick. I don't think Joe wrote up his little routine either. He sells two knife sets (and having a three knife set is better IMHO).

The reason I mention this is to suggest that developing a one-knife routine that is visual, fun, and magical just isn't that difficult.

As Frank just mentioned above, Doc Eason has published (on video) his one-knife routine. It is found on his DVD "After All These Years". Watch his routine here:
