Great question, that was never covered on the DVD.

Can't you just cut off the point of a pen and then replace it in the gimmick?

That would be the way I would do it.

That would totally work, just cap it off with a little dab of glue to keep the ink from going everywhere.

This became my closing trick for my recap routine by Gregory Wilson. The gimmick is a modern take on a really old gimmick. The pen itself is well made, I honestly saw no difference between the real pen and the gimmicked pen when I opened up my package. I tried it on some people today during lunch. Just like the trailer I slammed the pen with all power that I possessed and ended up stabbing my palm. When the audience were amazed and freaked out, I was secretly holding my pain continuing the trick. The people loved it, so did I ( my right palm did not). There is no failure only feedback (lesson learned, always be gentle), and a little bit of sacrifice is all worth it for a good visual effect.

Really, the instructions or DVD did not tell you how to do the smash vanish. I can't believe that. Okay, just slant your hands, don't slam the pen at a 90 degree angle.

This is not a new trick, it was made and sold in the 1960's. Back before Bic Pen was the Lindy Pen. A long stick like pen that was very popular back then, no clicker or retractable ink barrel.

I can't remember the creator, but Tannen's Magic sold it in their catalog. Same gimmick as this current model. Here the pen is dropped in a small newspaper cone, and then crumbled up. This same guy made a long Vanishing Cigarette Holder as well.

Exactly my idea! I will change my gimmick to black so I can do "Pointless", "Recap" then vanish the pen. Two Greg Wilson effects that kill together then a complete vanish!!

Sure, the pen itself is old, but I LOVE the SansMinds presentation. So practical and easy.

And for what it's worth...here was the presentation I came up with (with the old model pen). Never really performed it for real people, though; just the webcam:

Agreed. I have owned similar products in the past but this one is really well made and the presentation works so well. I've been doing this for the past few days and the reactions have been terrific.

Great product! Very simple in it's method and very well made. I highly recommend it.
I really wish that someone would also manufacture this type of gimmick in a Sharpie. But I realize that would probably be much more difficult to produce.

Give it time, I'm sure someone out there is working on the Sharpie version.

Got it today.

In summary, it does what it is supposed to. Works good. I need more practice in making sure when I show the napkin.. nothing else is seen.

Should get better with practice but overall I recommend.

So how is this different then the Pixi Pen?

Used to write gone on the paper and then the pen "vanishes"

Pixi pen runs 3-5 bucks
