Long, long ago, I saw a silk routine, where the magician took two silks of different colors (pink and blue), tied knots in the centers, and caused the knots to change places. (Pink knot jumped to blue silk and blue knot to pink silk).

I bought a trick very similar to this, thinking it was the same thing, but the thing I loved about the routine in question is the way the knots would change. It was with a quick "tap" like movement that only hid the knot from view for a fraction of a second.

I have tried to find out what the name of this trick might be, but I cannot find one like I described. Maybe it was exclusive to that particular magician, or maybe he came up with a great method for the same trick I bought. I don't know, but I would love to find a source for it.

If anyone could help me out, I would certainly appreciate it.

This sounds like a Pavel thing. Daryl made one up with red and white silks.

I remade a set for a guy that wore out his old set.

Ah...Pavel. Thanks Richard!

Can the change appear almost instantaneous with this version? Is there a video?

Regan,

Try Rice Vol 2, page 664. Look at it and you will see that double knots are simply a function of adding a silk. This will have to be custom made. I already import the prop from China. You just need to pick the colors. (You only get two instead of the usual four.)

Pavel's had a red spot on a white silk and a hold in the red silk.

I am not sure about the video but there are some handling issues to hide the red knot in the white silk.

Thanks, gentlemen. I'm not 100% sure we're talking about the same effect, but you guys have given me some places to look.

Hey, Regan, this sounds like Chameleon Silks. Here's the link:

Or is this the effect that you bought that was similar? Hank Lee's even offers it in aqua and pink.

Hi Jimmy,

That's the one I bought. I thought sure I was getting what I had witnessed, but unless it's a different handling, it's not the one I wanted.

Thanks though, it sure does sound like the one.
