A card is selected from the deck, folded in half widthwise, and the center is torn out so an actual hole is created in the middle of the card.
Next, you borrow a bill from your spectator, fold it in half lengthwise, and place it between the card's folds.

The bill can be clearly seen through the hole at all times throughout the routine. With a (borrowed) pen or pencil, you now stab right through the center of the bill! The pen is unmistakably punched right THROUGH the center of the borrowed bill and is clearly shown on both sides!

The pen is removed... and with a touch of magic the punched hole seems to have magically healed itself! The freshly restored bill is handed back to its owner straight away, as well as the card, for her to keep as a unique souvenir!

STAB by Peter Eggink is really a stunning, beautiful piece of organic magic that we know you'll LOVE!

I'm knocking off 2 stars because the construction of the gimmick is not as easy as the instructor explains.You have to be patient to do this.The concept and the performance of this trick is terrific ! It looks great and if the gimmick is constructed right...it's a miracle.The instructor explains that one gimmick should 'last a lifetime'....then I say........add a couple more dollars to the price of the trick and include the gimmick pre-made.Just a thought.

Best pencil through bill trick I've seen Report this review

The gimmick does take a little work, maybe 15-20 minutes to construct, so make 2 or 3 while you're doing it. Plenty of material for 4 or 5 included. Each gimmick should last for months, except for replacing some tape.
I use photocopied bills so I don't have to destroy a real bill each time. They only see 1 inch of the bill anyway.
I think that it is the perfect fooler. Can be carried in billfold and ready to go instantly. Just pull out the card with gimmick attached, borrow a pencil and amaze someone!

Most useless trick I ever bought!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2017

First: The Illusion is great, but for a worker, the gimmick is completely useless.

Second: The construction is a pain in the ass, takes you half an hour, and the guy explaining it is the bloody worst. He misses explaining all the small subtleties, that really matter. Because you will construct the gimmick 2-3 times, before you have a working one.

Third: The trailer is totally misleading, because you can't just have a card chosen, tear it, hand it out and repeat. (maybe for two times), because you have something stick on the "chosen" card, and stick it to the next one if you repeat the trick. (table hopping). But after 2 performances it won't stick anymore, you you'll have another 15 minutes to make it reusable. SO: 1-2 performances and then you will need to go somewhere.

Fourth: The gimmick is not working reliable. The nature of the gimmick is wobbly and stupid, it will wear out very fast.

This is one of the worst (crafty) things I bought in the last five years. In my eyes completely useless for a worker. The handling is awful, the explanation is rubbish, the whole thing is trasher of the week, not worker of the week.
Of course the method is cool, it looks amazing, but believe me, you will not perform that in the real world for more than once maybe.

Save your Money!!!!

deceptive illusion, once you get over some issues Report this review

Pros: very deceptive, unique, clever method

Cons: gimmick can malfunction, tearing card can be difficult, handlings covered on the instructions have several major flaws, imo

I have come to really like this effect (and so have my audiences), but that is only after putting considerable work into managing the gimmick and changing the handling.

Details:

The first thing I noticed when learning this was how tough it was to tear a decent hole in the card. It can be done, but it it requires some hand strength, it can look sloppy, and will kill the trick instantly if you tear wrong. Not good!

Second, the gimmick is very clever, but there are several ways for it to fail (as I discovered during performances). I was able to overcome these issues, but only after some experimenting. None of these issues are covered on the instructions, which makes me wonder if the gentleman teaching the trick had performed it much. (In fact, I'm pretty sure he hadn't, as he had no idea how long the gimmick would last). The gimmick, btw, is one of the more complex I've constructed and the instructions suffer from a lack of close-ups. I made one mistake during construction for this reason.

I can't get too much into my main issue with the two handlings taught as it might reveal too much, but I will say that the creator's decision to end clean creates a lot of headaches that I think could have been avoided with a different handling. I was able to devise one after a couple weeks of experimenting that eliminates these issues.

Bottom line: I have a lot of respect for the creator for inventing such a brilliant gimmick, but I think most who attempt this are going to run into problems. Your ability to overcome them will depend on your patience and knowledge of magic.

Interesting but not strong enough Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2017
(This review is for STAB by Peter Eggink)
Good idea for getting gimmick in play...not strong enough to waste a gimmick card spot in my deck.

Deduct 1 star...Do not start with building of the gimmick. Consider that your trick may be worthless for the buyer. Start with a finished gimmick and give us the basics of the trick. WE are not here to do 30 minutes of craft work for a gimmick we cannot use. You are not Mr Craftwork on the local cable show.

Deduct 1 star...More and more remote websites with password protected instructions. Why do we believe these websites are going to survive when we really need it. I do not!

Insanely clever trick, the illusion is perfect. I'm already fooling everyone I show this too. I even adapted it to make an even simpler handling. Great work as always from Peter!

As a hobbyist magician. I agree with the previous review. The gimmick is not as easy as it looks to put together. I had to review the assembly a bunch of times to get how it's put together. Also some of the close-up views were not very clear. Overall the effect is awesome and the gimmick is ingenious.
