Mogar, Joe: Mogar's Fantasy Knives Routine
Published by Joe Mogar
5 pages, manuscript. Set comes with 5 Knives

Comments [DA]: The Mogars Fantasy Knives Routine comes with a five knife set: white, black, w/b gimmicked, r/b gimmicked, and a visible chameleon knife, as well as a vinyl holder for the knifes. The routine is very good. The knives are well made and are designed to perform the color change move very well. The knives can be opened for those routines that require this. Highly recommended. The instructions are provded on 5 8.5x11" pages, stapled. The first four pages are the Fantasy Knife Routine, and the last page is the explanation of the moves. See the knives pages for images of Mogar knives.


Mogars Fantasy Knives Routine:

Effect: A red knife is shown on both sides and the blade is opened and closed. The knife is passed through the fist and nothing happens. The knife is passed partially through the hand and is seen to have changed to white, but not completely! Part of the knife is still red (on both sides). The knife then visibly change fully to red again while rubbed with the thumb. The red knife is pushed into the fist, where it vanishes. A white knife is removed from the pocket. It is pushed through the fist, but nothing happens. It is pushed through again, and changes to black, and then back to white. A second black knife is now revealed and both knives are placed in the hand. The white knife is removed and held in the other hand. The hands are tapped together, and the knives transpose. The process is repeated, but the black knife is removed. This time both knives are found to be black! A third white knife is removed from the pocket and handed to the spectator. The white knife is placed between the two black knives. Upon opening the hands, there is now one black knife between two whites. Another black knife is removed from the pocket and the magician displays a black and white knife in each hand. All four knives are taken in the right hand. Magician has too many knives, so two are removed and placed on the table. One knife is placed in the pocket, and the remaining knife turns to red! The red knife is placed in the pocket, and the left hand is finally shown completely empty.
