Get ready to give autographs... this thing is HOT!

You ask your spectator if you can borrow a dollar. As she's finding her dollar you take out a pen.

With her dollar in your hand, you stab the pen right through. The Pen visually pierces the dollar.

She sees it. She hears it. She feels it. She practically tastes it. She knows that your pen just made a big, impolite (if not downright rude) hole in HER dollar bill.

Now, with your reputation (and her dollar) on the line you bring the pen and bill even closer. At this point you're RIGHT up close... she's NEVER going to forget this.

With NOTHING obstructing her view you pull the pen right back through the bill. She doesn't even blink. She sees every moment of it. The pen is now completely free from the bill.

The bill is completely unharmed and completely examinable!
It can even be signed beforehand.

The pen is instantly completely inspectable!
No funny moves!

There's nothing fancy about your pen...
Yes, it's sleek and stylish. Yes, its urban design is suggestive of superior tastes and a strong sense of value...

...but it's just an everyday pen.
It's the kind of pen you see ten times a day without ever noticing.

The pen writes.

The cap fits.

It doesn't get any easier than this.

Stab your bills! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
I didn't realize how good this trick is until I got it for free on a promo but I sure to order another to have on hand as well as to get the DVD. The instructions are very good. The pen looks indistinguishable from a cheap ball point pen and can be handed out for examination. Pulling the pen out of a stuck bill and restoring the hold is mind boggling.

Official B_Magic Review! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.

I'm not a big fan of most Pen-Thru effects. All of them lead to a high amount of heat being directed to the pen during your effect, and your audience's attention drifts a bit because of it. Also, many require switches and or gimmicks that leave you only partially clean. The same is true for this effect.

I do like the versatility of this particular pen-thru, which is a bit more versatile than some others. You will need to practice to get natural with this pen, it's sleights are not one that is all that natural to begin with. This is a good effect, and it's not something I would explicitly tell people not to get. But I do warn you that people will focus all their attention on your pen, and that lowers the reaction levels in my opinion.

I personally feel that Misled is a far better version of a pen-thru effect and eliminates many of the problems that other pen-thrus all deal with. If you really like this effect, by all means buy it, but if you want what I consider to be the best and cleanest pen-thru effect out there, go for Misled. It really is leaps and bounds better.

Absolutely Fantastic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2010
It's amazing how much I've used this thing. I perform more than anything else I do. And the best part is that it really doesn't appear to be an effect until you restore the bill.

The basic effect itself is fairly easy to get down. Also, audience response on this thing is incredible. The fact that it's THEIR money makes the effect so much more shocking. The expressions you'll get from the ripping sequence are just priceless, especially when you reveal that the bill is restored. And, if you're worried about people questioning the pen, DON'T. Almost every time I've done this, people just want to see their dollar. If they do ask for the pen, there's an incredibly easy way to clean up naturally and hand it out to be examined.

Others have mentioned quality was an issue. This was one of the things I was worried about. The pens aren't fine writing instruments but they're pretty decent quality and have held up pretty well so far.

One evening, I left the pen in "writable-mode" on the coffee table while some people were over. Someone even picked up the pen and used it to write down a phone number without noticing a thing (like they should. the pen looks completely normal). Then someone mentioned if anyone had seen the new bills. I immediately thought to myself "Yes! Perfect performance opportunity!". He took out his own bill to show everyone. I now had the perfect situation to perform so I started saying how apparently there's this new security feature that is only found on the newer bills. I asked if anyone had a pen. "Here's one!". Perfect. Threw in some more patter and BAM pen was through the dollar. Got a few "Hey!" 's and "Wow that's nice of you" 's. The illusion is completely convincing. As magicians, we tend to think this is a magical part of the effect. It's not. At this point, the audience believes that you actually stabbed their bill. Got a bunch of gasps when I ripped out the pen and restored it. They grabbed at the bill amazed and confused without even asking for the pen. I cleaned up the pen and set it down but no one even asked to see it. Everyone was talking about it the whole night.
I love this so much because of how practical it is and how easy it is to do at the drop of a hat. I bring it EVERYWHERE and have gotten so much mileage out of it.
I would also highly recommend getting Oz's DVD with it. Just read the reviews on that page. It is also a fantastic buy.

Overall, if you don't buy this for the steal of a price that it is, you're cheating yourself. So do yourself a favor, stop reconsidering, debating, and changing your mind and add the damn thing to your cart already.

Unbelievable Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
The original Pen thru dollar is an effect many people have heard of throughout the world. What Oz Pearlman did was bring a classic trick and added originality and something people haven't seen before to an act.

It comes with 2 pens with the gimmick and an instructional DVD with tips and 3 ways to poke the hole in the dollar, and 2 ways to take it out. The DVD also has many helpful hints like what to do when the gimmick accidentally falls.

Oz Pearlman also gives his original trick to us where the dollar goes inside the pen.

It is an excellent order at a very reasonable price. Every magician should learn this trick and place it in their routine.

Stealth Pen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 22nd, 2014
For the price, not bad. I think I prefer the PaperMate version Penguin offers. This pen does the job, it's a great effect and one of the first magic tricks I bought over ten years ago. An oldie, but a goodie. Easy to do, and gets great reactions.

Let me just start out by saying this, Penguin Magic is not paying me to write any of this... that being said... i should be payed. lol.

If you want a trick you can fit in your pocket and do anywhere. this is the trick for you. I have to say this was one of my first tricks i bought as a child. it just simply amazed me and i had to get it. to this day i am glad i did. I had to get a new one because my old one wore out. so i got this one from penguin. but these pens last a long long time.
get one today you will not regret it.

Pen Thru Dollar is Better Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2011
I just received this and was hoping something better or similar to Pen Through Dollar (also by Penguin), but was disappointed by the pen. I can't say what exactly disappointed me about it without giving the gimmick away, but I will say that if you are looking for an effect like this, go with Pen Thru Dollar. It costs about 3 dollars more, but the design of the pen is much better (again, I can't be specific) and will have much easier handling...

I'm getting the Pen Thru Dollar again and putting this one away...

Stealth pen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2011
Charming effect, but takes practice. I found the best was to divert the spectator's attention from the fact that there is a "too clean" hole in the bill is to punch the pen down , wrinkling up the bill as it pushed down into a cupped mode. The wrinkles divert some of the attention away from the pen. I love this trick, but performed with a brand new bill, it is not as effective. Don't be tempted to try it on someone until you've done it in front of a mirror about 100 times. Then, blow them away!
