Perfect Pen/Original Pen Through Anything - John Cornelius

The August issue of MAGIC included an ungimmicked version of Misled by Daniel Garcia, called Butter Bill, that you might want to check out.

There's another one that I used for a while, but I can't recall the name....so this sentence probably doesn't help.... Smile

Ken Kuroki's Cocktail Bill penetration from 5x5 Japan is really nice.

I regularly perform Misled and highly recommend it.

I used to perform with the Cornelius pen, but found that I preferred the cheaper "Bic" style pens. I've stopped performing pen through bill because the trick is being demoed too much at magic kiosks in the mall and such.

A couple of years ago, I began hearing words that I don't like to hear as a working pro:

"That's a cool trick. They sell those at ****, I'm going to buy one."

After I heard it a few times, I scratched the routine.

The only one I do is one I learned from another magi and is non-gimmicked.
No idea of the source, but I believe it's similar to Sankey's trick but without the paper cover.

If you're looking for impromptu, Ken Kuroki's Cocktail Bill penetration from 5x5 Japan is hard to beat.

Check out Jim Pace's work on this. He's got a good one in his lecture notes.

Misled is my personal favorite too. It's very reliable and I like how you can use different pencils for the effect. I also love the melting phase of the routine. It blows the audience away. Hands down, Misled is the best.

East meets West meets South from Ah-Ha and on Harkey on video. It is a very strong, convincing, effect.

I have one called "Executive Pen". It is pretty easy to perform, gets a good reaction, and can be examined (though I'm not into passing my stuff out). Does anyone know it this is a knockoff (or ripoff) of someone else's product? I ask because this thing was very reasonably priced.

Sammy,
Click here for a little history on the "Pen Through" effect. I did a search for the Executive Pen, and it looks an awful lot like the Cornelius products.

Thanks, Michael.
It looks to me like my pen is a knock off of John Cornelius' Perfect Pen. Probably the Magic Makers version. I bought it at a local magic shop. The packaging and instructions don't say anything about Magic Makers, but it sure looks the same. I hate it when people rip off true creators.

I have one of the "Executive Pens". It's the Magic Makers version. I plan on getting a Cornelius' Perfect Pen soon. I don't care for people who rip off the original creators, either.
It's not the size of the wand that matters, it's the "magic" in it...

Hi,
I am looking for a pen/pencil through bill in whitch you can borrow the pen/pencil and the bill and let them be examined. I was thinking of getting "Misled" but can all the stuff really be borrowed?? What are the differences with "Just Passin' Through"?? I tried to check "Ken Kuroki's Cocktail Bill" but cannot manage to find it, any info?? I like the idea of an ungimmicked version I'll check Harley's book.

Thanks.
