This thing is a pen that looks like a pencil. I'm wondering if the idea has ever been used before in mentalism, or if I just stumbled upon something pretty cool. Just wanted to share with the Café.

Idea: Use the pencil to make an "additional" touch to your prediction (such as a signature) after the information has been obtained.
I know this idea is not original, however the gimmick may be new. Let me know if this comes in handy for anyone!

The potential problem I can see from this particular website is that they "choose" which color they will give you (on the tip), but I'm sure they would be happy to honor a request via email, although I have no connection to this website so have no idea. They all apparently write in blue ink though, so that is a plus (in my opinion).

I guess the OP *did* read the ad (just one 'd' is required - it's short for 'advert').

I have one...they are too chunky and don't feel like a pencil in any way...

better off using those pens from grand illusions, that look like a nice silvery/chrome pen that never runs out...but when you write with it, it looks like pencil...

Makes you wonder why people don't just put blue lead in a swami?

... Would then look like biro.

Happy new year all!!

If the pencil feels too chunky, that is something I could get used to for a desired effect, but if the audience thinks it looks chunky I have a problem. The pen you describe from Grand Illusions sounds nice, but I have seen mechanical pencils that looks like pens sold in office supply stores. They are not usually cheap so it would probably be better and more practical just to get it from a magic supplier.
Thank you all for your comments and Happy New Year!

My point was, it doesn't look like a regular pencil, but an oversized big n chunky one...one that I have never seen available as a regular pencil!

http://www.grand-illusions.com/acatalog/Beta_Pen.html

there's a pocket version for the obvious use...

but to be honest, apart from using water-proof ink if I'm in a busy and/or rowdy bar, I just stick to standard pencils...
