Artisan Color-Changing Knives by TCC(c. 2021) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
TCC have been making magic since 2008 and they are committed to produce very high quality magic for an exceptional value. This is a well made set of knives in a nice leather holder and good quality online video (with English subtitles).
These knives handle well and transform very easily (some of the easiest I have used) and most people will love them 🙂
However, I see one issue that bothers me a little. The colors are not solid – the white has some swirls of grey and the black has some swirls of grey and in certain lighting it might take a minute to recognize the color change. It might be a small point, but I like my color changes bold and beautiful. I’m not talking shocking pink here, but if you are going to use black and white make sure there is no ambiguity.
The quality is certainly there, and it is obvious that TCC is all very consistent with their high quality, I just think they have fallen a little short with the color choices 🙁
Effect: Among the information that can be found, the Color-Changing Knives can be traced back to 1930 and usually credited to the illusion master, Walter Jeans.
For the next ninety years, due to its extremely versatile effect, as well as its ease of use, and unique audience interaction, the color-changing knives are very well-loved by the magic world. Countless top magicians perform the color-changing knives as part of their professional repertoire, and some have secured a spot in the famous World’s Greatest Magic series.
Many masters have penned down their thinking behind their routines and included them in books or lectures. E.g. Juan Tamariz, Ascanio, Johnny Thompson, Bill Malone, Daryl, etc.
This has resulted in this effect achieving another level of popularity. The Color-changing knives have become one of the most classic and popular magic effects in the world.
An exquisite pocket knife changes from one color to another, and can be changed back again. If you like, you can repeat the effect.
It can also be a game played between two people. You take out a blue knife and hand it to the audience to hold in their hand. You hold the white one and the audience holds the blue one. With a magical gesture, the knife in the audience’s hand changes places with yours.Magicians are in pursuit of magic that is simple, practical, compact, and can easily to narrow the gap between themselves and the audience.
As the saying goes, ‘Good tools are a prerequisite for the successful execution of a job’. Magicians have been searching for a set of useful color-changing knives for many years. What is available on the market ranges from Rodger Lovins, which are available for 150 dollars, to very affordable versions available for less than 20 dollars.
Your search may very well end today.
We truly believe that we have made perhaps the best looking and most practical Color-changing knife available today.
