Hey guys,

I had chance to play with the Perfect Pen by John Cornelius and it is more fun than we could have imagined! It's been long out of stock and impossible to get. For those that don't know, The Perfect Pen is John Cornelius improvement on the already GENIUS & CLASSIC Pen through Anything! The mechanism works flawlessly and smooth like butter. Since everything is self-contained and there's nothing to ditch or steal away, you truly feel like James Bond when performing.

Check it out here:

-Hand out BEFORE & AFTER!
-NOTHING to DITCH or STEAL away!
-SUPER CLEAN handling!
-SUPERBLY manufactured!

Best Regards,
Titanas
Product Developer @ Murphys Magic Supplies

Have and still use the original, it’s great.

Regarding the new trailer, was the amount of times the gimmick was flashed, was that intentional?

This is a wonderful effect. The gimmick is top notch. If you like the effect, buy it and start amaze people.

I used to own one and while clever, it's not completely examinable. They can hold it and look at it, but if they start pulling at it, they will discover the secret. Unless this has somehow been updated.

Watching the trailer the first time (I went back to check if I'd just imagined it, but had not) you can see and hear something happen two times: once soon before, and once shortly after the penetration. There was also a pretty obvious change to the pen barrel.

I would expect this can only be casually inspected, but would hazard that anyone wanting to experiment with the pen's ability to retract/extend the nib might notice something off.

I'd be very interested to have someone clarify.

What has been changed/improved in this reissue? Looks like the pen is all silver now instead of that ugly combination of gold/silver on the old ones.

I agree. I wouldn't use the old one for that reason, it doesn't feel modern and doesn't fit my style. The new pen is much more modernized so I will def be picking this up.

In the magazine “Magic” Racherbaumer published a Chad Long effect where you make a pen vanish inside a napkin: you push a pen through a napkin, and suddenly you crumple the napkin - the pen is completely gone. Perhaps you may want to track down the effect (or work out the method by yourself). It’s in the June 1995 issue.
Have a nice day

So no info on any changes or improvements from the original, that would be interesting.

I hope the new Perfect Pen is the same quality as the original.

I am not hopeful since Murphy’s dropped the ball with Mikame.

Thought I might have that issue but I don't. It's the one with Funtasio on the cover. Anybody have this and can share?

This is not new. There are many reviews on here about the Perfect Pen. I purchased it when John first came out with it. It is Rolls Royce of the Rolls Royce of effect like this. It is worth every penny.

Well, as this is a reissue, it is "new" as people will want to know how this compares to the original, quality, etc. so....
bring forth the reviews!

It might be the Rolls Royce in terms of cleanliness of handling and look of the pen, but it's not really examinable so it depends what your performing priorities are.

Nothing beats Ignition IMO.
However, I do wish they would come out with an Ignition 2.0 where they create a safe, easy, and reliable way to carry the gimmick without fear of losing it.
