Imagine yourself borrowing a twenty from a friend. Reluctantly she hands over the bill. Just as she's about to ask why you need it, you confidently shove a pen right through her money! She watches in amazement (her eyes only inches from the bill) as you pull the pen out leaving the twenty completely unharmed. She snatches the twenty out of your hand and can't find anything wrong with it. Now she wants to see the pen. No problem, you hand it to her.
Q: I've seen other versions of this effect at other magic stores, why is this one better?
It's a great pen. It's the strongest Pen Through Dollar on the market, both in mechanism and in performance. It's built to last.

A big improvement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 25th, 2012
I was using the old style pen with a small tip with success, but this one has really improved the routine almost to perfection. Watch the video and practice the routine - there is no better way to do it than how it is explained. Works best with crisp dollars, but any condition will still do the job if you master it....
Good combination of power and design Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2012
....I've been through several "Pen Thru" gimmicks in the past few years but this particular set is perfect...(for me at least)..I love the innocent looking grey, rubber coated pens that have been used here....not to mention more than enough power in the magnets. the cut on the gimmick is also very clean ...the perfect combination of power and design built into a deceptive gimmick...this is the one you want!
Next Best Thing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2012
Perhaps the next best thing to the original John Cornelius Pen. Lets quit kidding yourselves. Most of the pens on the market appear to penetrate a bill a mere one inch from the tip!? Is this supposed to be impressive to spectators? I prefer this model because it penetrates at least two inches.
If you are one of those that are worried about being asked to pass out your props for examination, it comes with a duplicate with absolutely nothing to find. Sure it is another item to carry but the end greatly outweighs the means to me in this case. To be honest, I don't even carry the dupe because no one ever asks me for it. If they are than you are probably doing something wrong in your performances to begin with.
This is a complete kit/gaff included Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 6th, 2011
I am not really a performer anymore, but I prefer to do illusions for friends, family, parties and other close-up magic. I'm not a Chris Angell or David Coperfield - that doesn't really appeal to me.
But this trick/illusion is incredibly powerful. All you need is a great grip on slight-of-hand and you're ready to go. The fact that the pen comes with a "duplicate" real pen is a HUGE plus. There are so many gaffs out there today (I'm a coin guy and the US Gov't has made it difficult to do ad-hoc coin illusions because of the "State" quarters, etc.) that don't come with something useful to hand out for inspection. I have done this routine in many other ways than the original intended - I have someone sign a small notebook page and then penetrate it with the pen. I show the observers that the pen has destroyed their signature and then pull it out intact.
If you're looking something that can be done close-up at parties, etc., buy this trick. I can't say enough about having a real pen to hand out for inspection.
If you are doing parties, etc., buy this trick.
IT WILL BLOW peoples' mind if you have the right performance. The only downside is that you have align the magnets pretty closely to do a full "pull-through" routine and not lose the end of the gaff on the floor.

I love this idea and gimmick it is incredible and has never let me down. I haven't ever used the stealth pen or misled, but I think this is an incredible trick and it has never let me down.

HAVE DONE THIS EFFECT ABOUT 50 TIMES AN THIS ONE I WILL CD THE RESPONSE WAS AMAZING. I HAVE 2 OTHER VERSIONS AND THIS ONE TOOK THE CAKE.I ASKED SOME FAMILY MEMBERS WHY THEY LIKED IT AND THEY SAID IT LOOKS LIKE AN ORDINARY PEN. ONE PERSON SAID THEY USE THAT TYPE OF PEN EVERYDAY.
Amazing value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2014
I purchased this effect hoping for the best as it was part of my first order from Penguin Magic. I spent around an hour or two mastering the effect before I preformed it and people were left in awe left and right. I had a small problem with my order though , the pen was missing the cap and penguin magic graciously sent me another one and I really appreciate it. Buy this effect if you want to be a wizard !

Devilishly Deceptive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 19th, 2013
This trick never fails to amaze. After purchasing other variations of pen through dollar, this one is hands down my favorite because it looks like a regular papermate pen and you see a good portion of the pen go through. I have the spectator initial his/her dollar with the pen and switch it in and out by taking out a lighter from my pocket to "mend" the rip and then putting the lighter back in my pocket. Flawless everytime! Love performing it at restaurants when I get the check. A must have.
