Mental Pen allows you to create REAL MAGIC. The kind of magic that gets into their minds and leaves them totally stunned.

It can be performed with any book, magazine, napkin, receipt or even a blank piece of paper, allowing the magician to perform a variety of different routines.

KEEP IN MIND:

- The spectator holds the pen the entire time
- No switches
- The "secret" is activated by the spectator himself!
- Endless routines are possible, either for close-up or stage
- You can use the pen as a regular Sharpie
- Diabolical gimmick makes the effect super easy to perform

Comes complete with Sharpie and all gimmicks needed.

Really want to like this. The gimick is top notch and possibilities endless. My problem is the practically. If you want to carry this and not have to excuse yourself for setup then you have to carry it uncapped in your pocket. The Spectator reset is very cool but if I have to worry about it in my pocket I feel I should just carry a second dried out sharpie and do a switch.

Endless Possibilities Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2017
Don't have it yet... however! I pre ordered it , i know how this works up and down. Already have watched the explanation. I made something similar to this that CRISS ANGEL actually teaches in his volumes back in the day. The best thing about this is you have no worries about switching and the spectator does everything FOR YOU. Literally, EVERYTHING, you dont do anything. Not like psypher, steam, a mental wallet of any kind. This is in its own utility device of mentalism that you can do so much with the Mental Pen. You also get a DOWNLOAD PDF of that VOODO shirt that once you receive the product the video included should have a PDF download link of the graphic, take that to any place, buy a solid color shirt and then bam! You're good to go. Voodo is the best one in my book and you can of course make your own routines. I will update my review when I receive this for sure and let you know how it plays out compared to what I created similar concept in the past.

Have any questions, shoot me an email : AndrewACEMagic@Gmail.com

Stay Magical,

Best Utility of 2017 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 23rd, 2017
Wow! This is a modern version of a really old mentalism utility gimmick, straight out of Annemann. And it is brilliant. Simply brilliant. It solves the problem of switching out Sharpies so that you can just do the routine simply and cleanly. As Joao says, it may be the only utility where the spectator actually unwittingly resets the gimmick for you. With it you can work minor miracles.

Now some of you are thinking, this thing is a $39.95 Sharpie! Yes, but when you see the precision manufacturing of the gimmick--and you get two spares--you'll see that these must've be a b**** to custom manufacture. If your Sharpie dries up, throw it away, get a new one, use the gimmick, and you are set. This should last you forever.

Again, perhaps this is not a duffer's tool, but rather a handcrafted item for professionals. Every mentalist needs one. It is superb and sure to become a classic.

Awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
I'm really happy with this purchase. There are so many new routines possible with this gimmick, as well as ways to enhance your existing material. I've already used it as a force for Chaptrick, and have also thought of a way to use it as an opener for Craig Petty's "Chop."

What I like most about it is it's simplicity. I love performing magic, but as a hobbyist, often struggle with approach. The effects possible with this gimmick will make it so much easier to begin a close-up or street performance because as it says, the spectator does almost all of the work and the gimmick is so clever I doubt will be noticed by more than a few, and likely not anyone. So, the opening to my routines will be no-worry, no-hassle mental effects that act as great segues into more complicated material.

If you're ready for something new and SUPER easy, this is a strong option for you! Thanks Mr. Miranda and Mr. Sereno!

You really need to store this properly Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2017
Great gimmick, I use it all the time. The only thing is, is that it doesn't tell you how to store it properly. I've gone through 2 markers and they run out so quickly, but it was because of how I was storing them. You NEED to remove the cap that comes with mental pen, and place a real genuine cap on it without the gimmick when you're not using it. Keep the trick cap somewhere safe. Otherwise, your sharpies will run out of ink during a show like what happened to me, and it'll be really embarrassing.

Clever clever gimmick. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2017
I think the gimmick is honestly vert clever and it works very effectively- it also comes with 2 spares in case you lose the piece (it is small and can be easy to lose if you're not careful.


I think it's a very effective device and the tricks that he suggests work very well. I couldn't give it 5 stars as the way you have to store the gimmick before the trick is very awkward and it feels like it might dry out the pen.

Still, very good. Can't wait to see more.

Good Design, Limited Practicality Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2019
The pen works as advertised, and the gimmick is well-designed and visually undetectable. I had no concerns about my participants discovering the secret.

The main advantage of the pen, the entire selling point really, is that the participant un-gimmicks the pen herself without the magician touching the prop. This "proves" that the pen is normal, and it is convincing.

Two drawbacks.

First, the pen must begin in a gimmicked state, which means you can't openly use it to write prior to the secret work. This is contra the design of most effects, where the proving happens before the dirty work, not after. This drawback can be mitigated through some subtleties, but nevertheless purchasers should be aware of the limitation.

Second, the reset is a hassle. It can't be done openly and there's a (small) chance of losing track of the gimmick during the operation due to human error. Three gimmicks are supplied, I suspect, in anticipation of this eventuality. By contrast, routines using a simple pen s****h have the luxury of an instant reset.

In sum, you are purchasing a well-made convincer. For me, simply using two pens remains the more practical option in most circumstances.

Mental pen sherpa edition Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2018
When needed "gimmick" does not stay secure.And when retreived "gimmick" is slightly kinda hard to get to drop so it can be reset.
I give it 3 stars.
All things considered, I love the variety of things you can use your mental pen sherpa for. Very entertaining.
