Wow another nice looking visual trick being released soon, the date has to be confirmed.

Check out the video here http://www.saturnmagic.co.uk/paul-harris......ick.html

PEN or PENCIL!! For the first time, No playing card needed! An exclusive and very visual effect, so easy to perform! Based on a well known handling, this effect will fool your spectators!

The well-known English magician, Dynamo, has done this several times on his TV show, "Dynamo: Magician Impossible." Today it's your turn to do "Pen or Pencil" for your spectators.
The simplest things are often the most difficult to implement. Here's the proof!

PEN or PENCIL
By Mickael Chatelain

Today, Mickael Chatelain is offering his new creation, Pen or Pencil. Based on a simple principle, this new, extremely visual effect will completely fool your spectators.

This time, no playing cards, just two writing implements - one transparent Bic pen with its cap and a wooden pencil.

Take out the Bic and the pencil in front of your audience. You have nothing else in your hands. A wooden pencil in one hand, a Bic pen in the other, that's it! Invite one of you spectators to chose either.

Let's say he chooses the wooden pencil. Place it into your trouser pocket, leaving only the Bic pen in your hand - nothing else.

Remove the cap from the Bic while explaining that you'll make it disappear merely by blowing on it. You don't believe me? Close your fingers around the cap and blow on your hand. When you open your hand, the trick seems to have failed as the cap is still right there in the palm of your hand! It hasn't vanished!

Explain that it's not the cap that was supposed to disappear, but the Bic pen!

I don't have to describe the reaction of your spectators when they notice that you are no longer holding the Bic pen in the the other hand but rather the wooden pencil!!!

The Bic has completely disappeared without a trace! A disappearance in full view! Your spectators won't believe their eyes. With just a fleeting glance at the cap, the Bic has changed places with the wooden pencil!

It's completely impossible. You haven't moved a muscle! You then proudly take the Bic from your pocket where moments ago you had put the wooden pencil.

An absolutely unbelievable transposition! An effect that we guarantee will drive your spectators crazy! You may, if you wish, hand out both the Bic and the pencil for examination at the end of the routine.

Do it for yourself in front of a mirror. You'll fool yourself, so strong is the illusion!

Take Note:
No pulls, no manipulation!
You have only the Bic and the pencil in your hands, nothing else.
The pen and the pencil are really different; no one could confuse them.
You can learn to effect the change in five minutes!
Perfect for close-up or in the street. You'll keep it on you at all times.
Instant reset!
Delivered complete and ready to go!

The DVD will explain everything you need to know!

I would say no way. Looks very cool but I'm thinking surrounded would be tough.

It looks like a very cool prop, but is there more to this than a p***** m***?

So the effect which is shown at 1:16 can be done with what is delivered and won't require an additional purchase?

Expected To Be Released 12/10/2015

Is that October 12, or December 10?

no. you will need two gimmicks for that.
hence why Mickael wrote: imagine your own routines.

Works out to $33.54 per the XE converter. Sounds really high for what I saw in the video.

As long as you hold the pen close to your body.. I don't see how you can't get an 180 degree viewing angle for this effect. Seems that those angles are generous.

The release data is just a guess, Murphys list the item and should update their dealer centre with dates but they don't do it as quick as they should so I'm waiting for confirmation of the date.

This looks proper visual. Will wait for a couple of reviews before ordering me thinks. Mickael's releases are usually pretty solid though Smile

This does look good and, often carrying a pen and pencil with me, is something that could generate a lot of fun.

It also says, "Delivered complete and ready to go!", but if they don't include two gimmicks, you are not complete and ready to go and do what is shown in the trailer.

Lovely visuals on this.
Merchant of Magic have it on the site now as a special deal with free worldwide shipping : http://www.magicshop.co.uk/product_info.......d=146871

They will be posting a FAQ as questions come in.

I've not played with this in person yet. Not sure on the angles.. but Michaels work tends to be very well thought out.

MoM have also stated on the product page that 2 gimmicks are needed for the effect at 1:11 on the trailer, so customers can order as many sets as they need.

Hope this helps

It's fairly evident from the demo video what the gimmick is and what you are getting with this DVD.
It is also evident that the transposition effect shown needs two gimmicks.

That being said, that transposition is probably the weakest effect you could do with pen or pencil. The basic standard one gimmick routine is the strongest.

"delivered complete and ready to go" means that there is no construction required and that the gimmick is ready to go out of the box
