Topic: Pen through Anything
Message: Posted by: Catmouth (Apr 14, 2004 12:43AM)
Hello, Was wondering if there is a practical way to make a Pen through anything? I do not have one, nor do I know the gaff, just wondering if I should just buy one, or if one can be crafted out of found materials? It is a must that it can be handed out and examined without a switch such as some of the other pens mentioned in other posts. thanks in advance.

If you try to search and read all the posts about this matter carefully, you will find out what the gaff is. But when you try to make it, without own it, IMHO it will be difficult, lost a lot of time or the result not good enough, since you don't know the materials spec and how to make the good one for sure.

So better buy it first, then try to make another or repair it yourself when it has broken. Buy the cheap, but good and look like common pen. Not that fancy and expensive one. And as a bonus, you got the secret about how to handle it too. :)

I say this from my true experience.

Thanks again for the reply. I did a search and only found a couple of referances to the pen through anything. I know there are more, but The search engine hates me hehehe. I'll just look into getting one.

I own the inexpensive one and think it is fantastic. The way it is handled it can be passed out for examination without switching. They just don't get the special something that makes it work.

I agree, without being familiar with the effect, it would save you a lot of time to just purchase one.

I also agree. I have the Perfect Pen and I think it would be too difficult to make.

Good luck making the perfect pen
I'll give you 50 buck if you can

Better still penatration is a black pen double ended.
you can purchase them cheaply thu wholesale companies.

If that's your aim to make them cheaply, and sell them
buy them from whole sale but if you do sell them make sure your not ruining any local magicians work by selling 1 of his/her tricks.

Checkout the sharpie through anything, I love this prop! as I already use sharpies for my card routine it just takes some sleeving to switch it for a genuine ungimmicked pen for examination!

Just buy one
I have 4 cheep plain black ones because I loose them all the time. Cost me 10 each they look like your avarage cheep pen that I borrow from the waiter or send someone to the bar after pre instructing the staff to give the right pen to any one asking for a black pen ( I tell them it as to be black as it's black magic they will see) but after instructing the spec to return the to the bar I often forget to get it back and as they don't allways work to write with there sometimes thrown away. :stuckinbag:

The Perfect Pen writes, and it is refillable too.
