Whit Haydn's

Color-Changing Knives

The Intricate Web of Distraction


This 12-page booklet contains all of the moves and Whit's professional presentation for his routine with the color-changing knives, generously photo-illustrated for clarity.

Genii Review:

"The Intricate Web of Distraction is a showpiece...The routine is wonderful for a formal close-up situation. The title refers to a fictitious technique magicians use to misdirect their audience, which allows them to switch a black knife for a white knife or, in the end, make a knife vanish completely.

"Mr. Haydn has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about knife routines. He discusses subtleties in his written and video instructions that that are invaluable for the working pro and will be of great interest to hobbyists--especially knife-lovers. But most importantly, he addresses the plot of a knife routine, its inherent problems, and his solution. His video and written instructions break down the Paddle Move and two variations in great detail. The Flip, a Paddle Move done on the fingertips without moving the wrists, was new to me and most deceptive. For knife workers, this move alone is worth the price of the instruction booklet. Furthermore, he has a kicker-ending--a visible transposition that really catches the audience off-guard. The timing of this move is superb and worth the price of the booklet. The power of it wasn't evident if the written instructions, but after seeing the video, I urge you to explore this finale idea...

"Bottom line: ... Even if you have a knife routine you're happy with, you'll enjoy reading the instructions. "

--Danny Orleans, Light From the Lamp--Tricks, Genii Magazine September, 2001
