©1974 by E.O. Drane Co.
Paper, 2 sided 1/2 page instructions w/line drawings and props
Note: image shows an additional, custom painted all black knife.
Normal set has 2 knives (1 white, 1 gimmick)
1 Effect: A pocket knife is shown on both sides. The knife is placed
in the fist, and when shoved out, the handle has changed color. This is
repeated and the color changes to the starting color. The magician
explains that a second knife is used, and produces a 2nd knife from his
pocket. The "invisible switch" is demonstrated by holding the two
knives in opposite hands far apart. With a flick of the wrist, both
knives trade places.
