A legendary visual masterpiece reborn. Your new favorite everyday carry is here.

Most magicians have probably performed John Cornelius’ classic "Pen Through Anything" at some point. The ability to pierce a borrowed bill with a pen, and show it from all angles to "prove" its gone clean through before audibly ripping and restoring the bill, is truly one of the most perfect illusions in magic.

There was just one tiny issue that tended to irk some magicians. While the bill was examinable, you couldn't hand out the pen without conducting some sort of switch first.

That was, of course, until the "The Perfect Pen" was released...

  • No switches
  • No ditches
  • Fully examinable before and after the trick
  • Can be used to write with

"The Perfect Pen" launched this amazing effect into miracle territory. However, it was eventually discontinued and has been unavailable for years.

That's why we are thrilled to let you know that "The Perfect Pen" is back. Unlike the imitations and knockoffs that have surfaced in recent years, this premium pen is classy and elegant. It doesn't look anything like a magic prop and can even be used to write with.

With "The Perfect Pen" in your pocket, you'll be able to easily perform mind-blowing Pen Thru Bill effect, or even pen through coins, business cards, ties or whatever else you can think of, at any time.

We have a very limited supply of these and expect them to sell out quickly. If you’re interested in seeing how this classic of magic has been improved, we urge you to act fast.

  • Robert asks: Has the ability to write with the pen been improved?

    • 1. Bruce answers: It writes well, but if you write a lot, you will need to replace the cartridge often (about 15 minutes worth of DIY labor).

  • Mark asks: Is this any different to the original release. Have any new features or touches been added. Many thanks

    • 1. Jim answers: Minor differences, but the method and main parts are exactly the same.

  • Chuck asks: Seems odd how the pen changes length and quite obviously.

    • 1. Jim answers: When handled properly, it does not change length.
    • 2. Edward answers: cover the end with your hand.
    • 3. Thomas answers: Use the cap on the end of the pen and slide it the respective length up and down to create the effect that the pen has always the same length.

  • Todd asks: Can the pen be moved around after it has penetrated? Or is just through then removed?

    • 1. Jim answers: Technically it could, but I wouldn't perform it that way.

  • Avi asks: Hi, is it possible to change the ink refill?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, but it will take some DIY work.
  • Edward asks: Can the bill be borrowed and returned?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes.
  • Edward asks: If a spectator is in possession of both pen and paper for examination, would they be able to discover the secret? Would THEY be able to actually perform the illusion? I ask only because I've performed before some very smart individuals and have been called (after the fact and privately) by some.

    • 1. Edward answers: Never mind. I studied the demo and can honestly say everything could withstand close examination.
    • 2. Thomas answers: I would not give a spectator both the pen and cap simultaneously.
    • 3. Thomas answers: I would not give a spectator both the pen and cap simultaneously.

Customer reviews for The Perfect Pen



This is a great tool, looks beautiful, and works great. There is a downside in that, although the ad copy states the pen is fully examinable, it would be fairly obvious to someone examining it that there's something "suspect" about the pen-- as the tip part is a bit loose and wobbles slightly. Better than asking someone to examine, would be to follow up the bill illusion with another trick that requires the spectator to sign something. Just give them the pen and ask them to sign whatever it is -- that's an indirect way of allowing spectator to examine and they will be less likely to fiddle with it. But with the right handling this pen is great.
