The Color-Changing Knives is a magic classic. Generally credited to Walter Jeans it became
a popular pocket trick in the 1930s.
In 1958 Arturo de Ascanio, who went under the stage name Marcus, wrote the definitive book on
the subject in Spanish. In 1975 Jose de la Torre released Ascanio’s World Of Knives in English which helped make
the routine a staple of every close-up magician’s act.
The book was also one of the first Spanish magic books to be translated into English, introducing
the genius of Ascanio to magicians around the world.
After being out of print for decades Ascanio’s World Of Knives is back and is better
than ever, with many clear photographs and illustrations that make all the techniques and routines easy to learn. This book
teaches you the many tools you need to create your own routines with pocket knives that change color on command.
Techniques and routines include: Classic Paddle Move (Modernized), Cleaning Paddle
Move, Passing The Knife From Hand To Hand, Appearance By The Pinkie, Turn With The Ring Finger, Ultra Fast Turn, Classic Color
Change, Ascanio’s Half Turn, Bringas’ Color Change, Ganson’s Color Change In A Spectator’s Hand, One
Hand Color Change, Color Change With Normal Knives, Manipulating The Knife As A Cigarette, Push-Through Palm, Two Fu Manchu
Passes, Stealing With A Pull, Change Of Normal Knife To A Gimmicked One, Ascanio’s Fast Change, To Tell The Sides Of
The Knife By Touch, A Knives Classifier, Three Psychological Procedures, Psychological Aspects Of The Color Change, A Fred
Kaps Routine, The Handkerchief Pass, A Short And Easy Routine, Ascanio’s Knives And Color-Blindness and much more.
The main reason the Color-Changing Knives are a classic of magic and a staple of many
professional close-up magicians’ repertoire is that you are able to create beautiful and visual magic with ordinary
objects. Once you learn these techniques you will never leave home without a set of Color-Changing Knives in your pocket.Second edition published by Meir Yedid Magic in 2011. 144-pages
with more than 50 photographs and illustrations, 6"x9" softcover with color cover. Written by Ascanio, translated by Jose
de la Torre, with additions by Jose de la Torre, Slydini, David Bamberg, and Meir Yedid.

The Professor, Dai Vernon, summed up Dr. Sawa this way:
"One of the most creative magicians I have ever
known. As the saying goes, you have to see it to believe it-and even then, you won't!" Find out why.
Sawa burst onto the magic scene back in the 1970s, he caused an international sensation. His work with paper, seashells, ropes
and especially coins, was simultaneously whimsical and astonishing. Some years ago, for private reasons, Dr. Sawa vanished
from the magic world. Happily, he has resurfaced-his enthusiasm for magic not only renewed, but actually increased.

DESCRIPTIONThe Magic of Ascanio Book Vol.
4 "Knives and Color Blindness"
by Arturo Ascanio
Arturo de Ascanio y Navaz (1926-1997), is regarded as
the father of Spanish card magic. A lawyer by trade and an amateur magician, he devoted a good part of his life to magic and
was one of the founders of the prestigious Escuela Mágica de Madrid.
The Structural Conception of Magic, which is
the first volume of The Magic of Ascanio, is devoted to his theoretical thinking. Studies of Card Magic and More Studies of
Card Magic include all of his card creations, while the fourth volume Knives and Color-Blindness is a treatise on magic with
Knives and Color-Blindness is not just a repertoire of sleights and routines. Above
all, it encapsulates an extraordinary philosophy of magic, in which the love for detail, for naturalness and psychology alike,
are given as much importance as technical skill. Ascanio’s remarkable in-depth study of the psychological aspects of
the “Paddle Move” and the “color change” with knives is a fundamental contribution to the magic of
the color-changing knives. Arturo de Ascanio shows two specific qualities that very seldom go together: he is an extremely
clear writer and also an excellent performer of sleight-of-hand. You will no doubt find that Ascanio is very good at writing
about what he knows, and knows very well what he is writing about. Discount Price $39.00 reg
