Borrow a dollar bill from one of your spectators. Ask your spectator to make an X on the bill with a Sharpie style marker.

X marks the spot. Stab the Sharpie style marker down through the X on the bill.

The Sharpie style marker is now pierced straight though the bill! Show the bill and the Sharpie style marker from all sides. There are NO FUNNY ANGLES. It's clearly going straight through the bill, and everybody gets a good look.

Now, RIGHT IN YOUR SPECTATOR'S FACE, pull the Sharpie style marker out of the bill. Again, there are NO FUNNY MOVES. The marker comes cleanly through the bill, but THE HOLE IS GONE.

Your spectators are probably going to grab for the bill. That's OK! The bill is completely unharmed. You can hand it out for immediate inspection. The X is still there, but there's NO HOLE!

The SR-71 penetrates almost anything you can imagine: playing cards, business cards, baseball caps, bar napkins, coins, ears and more.

Pen through dollar is a great effect to do if you're a magician. What I find though is that the pen is still the best way to go. Pens are sharp. You'll achieve similar reactions with the sharpie but I still think you'll get the best reactions by using a pen. The product itself is good, don't get me wrong, but personally, it's not for me.

this is a great alternative to the classic pen through dollar. especially strong if you use a sharpie throughout your closeup routine, and switch it in with the gimmick. excellent product

Good effect, achieved with style Report this review

Its not a great effect, and it never will be; but this is the single best version of the effect I have ever seen, with the exception of Mislead (which is really a PENCIL through dollar).

The gimmick is very strong and the pen looks completely real, and it is examinable if you handle the situation right.

Awesome effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Its the standard effect but done perfectly with the marker you always carry. As other reviews have mentioned, It isnt branded, but theres ways around this, either remove the branding off your regular sharpie, allowing you to swap out for inspection, OR, with a little bit of homework, you can reconstruct one using parts from the gimmick,and MAKE a branded one. This trick has always made a big impression on my spectators, and is perfect to sneak in after a few signed card tricks, so they dont ask to inspect the pen too closely.

I like it. Excellent reactions and such. NOT INSPECTABLE. What I did was take another sharpie marker and I sanded off the label and I keep both in my pocket. This way, while they are stunned, I can switch them out. Always make sure to tell your magic-ee to write lightly "as to not rip the dollar".

This is a great trick and you can do so much more with the pen but you get marker on your hands but it is worth it.

I love that the blackbird can be put through almost anything. I got huge reactions from my friends and parents, however there are some downsides.

- I constently got ink all over my hands that could not be washed off.
- although it takes almost no time to teach yourself the basic routine, lots of people will want to inspect the marker, in which they will instantly find out the secret.

But if you are the Kind of magician who likes to get reactions fast I would recommend it.
