Looking for a set of Color Changing Knives. I've been using the Mogar Stag set... and really enjoy them. I've heard Joe is going through a tough time and orders are hard to fill right now. Most shops are "Out of Stock" on the 3 knife stag set. Is there another Manufacturer/shop that has a good set? Suggestions welcomed and needed!

Thanks!

I was also considering a colour changing knife set and read some good things here on the cage about Joe's knives, am I correct in thinking that you have actually tried to order a set from Joe and been informed that there is a long wait ?

I'm part of a CCK group on Facebook, and numerous members have talked about ordering and paying for knives that they still haven't gotten. I also noticed that virtually every Online supplier is "Out of Stock". I'm going to try to give Joe a call, his knives are Outstanding. But I would like to explore other options as well. I understand Rodger Lovins has a new set coming out in the Fall that will fit the bill.

Thanks for getting back to me, perhaps you could keep us updated via this thread as I would be interested to know what's happening with Joe or possibly Rodger's set if nothing comes through with Joe.

Actually, I just got off the phone with Joe. What a nice guy! He's catching up on some orders... and said it would take about 2 weeks for my order. I made the order and am excited to start working with the new set when they arrive. I'll keep you updated.

Check out Rodger Lovins knives. Best I've ever owned.

Interesting Jim when I looked at them I thought they looked a bit on the thick side due to them having two blades, I was reading about Joe's Perfect knives which apparently are good for when the spectators eye level is below ie when the spectators are sat down and your standing, does Rodger's knives have that ability ?

Also can anyone comment on the Merrill knives as I've read good things about them ?

I have a set of Merrill knives purchased 40 years ago and they are in excellent condition. I have some Mogar knives as well and they are great but I prefer the flat profile of the Merrill.

Interesting does the flat profile help to eliminate possible flashing or is it purely from a cosmetics point of view ?

The flat profile is superior to me based only on a tactile preference.

I ordered "Miracle Perfect Knive " from Joe Mogar.
I waited a while until they arrived (six weeks, from USA to Germany).
Longer than expected. I know now why Joe wrote me why it took so long (private matter).
Because I've been waiting so long, Joe sent me the free gifts:
- Cameleon Knives DVD
- perfect ace knife ( photo 2)
- extra small purse

What can I say, the knives are absolutely perfect.
I have not had better and beautiful knives in my hands.

And the "Master Twist" with Mogar's knife works almost automatically.
I can only recommend Mogar's knives, they are so, so good.

I was very lucky and managed to pick up a 4 knife stag set made by Joe second hand today for roughly half price and it also saved me the cost of import tax so I'm a happy man Smile

Stay clear of the Scott York Knives, they discolor after light use.

I started with the Imperial knife set many years ago and still use them to this day. The price was great and still is and the knives are more than adequate as far as quality for a magician.

I started with a set of Ed Drane ('Enardoe") knives in the early '50s. They still work fine. Back then Jimmy Sanders made great CCKs, but my "$2.00 set of Enardoes are still working just fine. I think that I paid $2.00 for them!

My Scotty York knives show a little discoloration but they are 20 years old and do look like a real knife. Probably because he made them from knives he purchased at a gas station.
