I think that presentation by Junge Junge is perhaps one of the best dagger head chest's I've seen, nice surprise ending as well.

Pakar, this is probably not what you are looking for, but in his book on knife manipulation, Mr. Merrill mentions several times that a nice manipulation routine could be added to the color changing knives effects by adapting cigarette sleights such as you might find in the Encyclopedia by Keith Clark. I think Lawrence O has made the same suggestion in several threads on the color changing knives, as well. The effects are probably not grand enough for the stage. Another source might be John Rogers's cigar manipulation routines.

Hope this helps!

None at all then?

Many years ago, I was doing a play and was required to vanish a bowie knife, huge and sharp. I did a flip stick vanish then slid the knife blade up into a pocket.
12 shows, no cuts, and the cast nor the audience knew how it was done.

I do remember recently seeing a floating sword effect. The guy did some flourishes first then had this excaliber type sword float.
