A full time entertainer that owns almost every pen thru ? and this is one that is used often. I use
a real sharpie several times 2 have notes, bills, cards signed and always allow the spectator 2 use
the pen . IMPORTANT 2 allow them to uncap - write - recap the pen once is enough now it is not asked
2 be looked at. Place it in the pocket and or sleeve it.
The idea is the sharpie is
innocent looking. I like to use and old expired credit card and drill a hole near the corner edge so
U can hold and show on both sides(hiding the hole) do the sharpie thru credit card and move the
sharpie to the hidden hole and have the spectator hold the credit card while I extract the sharpie.
They are busy looking at how the hole moved and U can turn put in pocket, have a regular
up sleeve(shuttle pass 2 exchange fake sharpie)or in and out of the pocket and sign a business card
2 give away. The same f/x I use now more with my hole in business card and giveaway. Give the
sharpie 4 marks out of 5. Anton the Enigmatist
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
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.
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.
This is the best trick i have ever orderd of penguin. It always tricks your spectators. I've done
it like 5-6 times to one kid and he hasn't figured it out. I'm only 10 and I can fool everyone with
it! 3 words: ADD TO CART NOW!!!!
out of all the "pen thru dollar" pens that i own this is the best because the "gimmick"is so strong.
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
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.
This is a great trick but there are some faults... if they whant to see the pen its not 100%
inspectible but when u get it you will learn to to avoid that... but other than that its the best
purchase I've made!!!
