Colour changing knives

Post by SimonC » Sun Jul 09, 2017 2:53 am

Good morning lady and gentlemen,
I recently took a school trip into London and stopped in at Davenports where I purchased a set of colour changing knives. I LOVE the trick and have wanted to add it to my arsenal for a while, but the props fell a little flat with me in terms of quality.
Does anyone have a set of colour changing knives gathering dust that they would be prepared to trade?
I would be happy to hand make a custom item, perhaps a personalised case for your favourite trick or deck, you think of something I'm sure I can make it!
Si
Now you see me...

Simon...

May I suggest that you try to find the vintage Enardoe set of Color Changing Knives?

They came in a small white box with red printing. The colors were red and white. You received two knives and the ungimmicked knife had an extra effect where only you can open (release) the blade! When you hand the knife to the spectator, they can't release the blade. A great set!

They do pop up for sale in used condition every now and then. Whatever you end up paying for them, it won't be as much as the new sets available these days.

By the way, Joe Mogar makes several different quality sets. Larger, smaller, different number of knives in the sets, lots of colors including a rainbow knife for a climax. He even has tiny knifes for a surprise climax.They are all very nice, a wide variety, and their handling is superb! Expensive but worth it actually. Joe is an acquaintance of mine. He is a great guy and will answer any questions you may have. By the way, he also raises miniature horses!
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

I may have a set of Mogar knives tucked away somewhere, but I'm on the road at the moment and unable to search for them.

Simon,

If you can find Daryl`s CCK, it`s a nice set too. It has a nice size, more visual, good climax. Everything can be handed out for examination at the end.

I'm an absolute dumbass concerning colour changing knives. Does this work the same way as the paddle?

Yes they do work like paddles. I never had a nice set just the enardo black and white. There are nice looking stag handle ones and 3 and 4 sets of different colored ones.

The Enardoes were black and white, not red and white. Thanks for the correction Richard!
