Pen OR Pencil - magic

We are really happy to present to you the Mickael Chatelain's latest trick : PEN or PENCIL. It is very visual and east to do.

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. Invite one of you spectators to chose either.

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

You remove the cap from the Bic while explaining that you'll make it disappear merely by blowing on it. You 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.

  • No pulls, no manipulation!
  • You have only the Bic and the pencil in your hands, nothing else.
  • You can learn 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!

Full instructional DVD included

  • Christian asks: does it come, like shown in the video, with the classical yellow pencil fitting the original misled-gimmick?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: While the pencil is a classic style, I would not imagine it being suitable to be used in a conjuction with Misled, due to the way this gimmick works.
  • CHAD asks: Can you do the visual transposition without buying the trick twice?

    • 1. Tony answers: I'm afraid that you can't

A highly visual effect! Practical and easy to perform. I love that I can have it in my pocket at all times!


Official review from Genii Magazine

From the January 2016 Genii magazine. Reviewed by Danny Orleans

“Pen or Pencil” is pretty easy to do. Beginners will enjoy entertaining themselves in a practice mirror or recording their handlings on a webcam and sharing. You get a gimmicked pen, a normal pen, and two normal pencils and some additional gimmicks to trick out additional pens. The extra props allow for variations and the ability to switch out the gimmick for examination.

In the down and dirty quality DVD instructions, Mr. Chatelain explains several handlings. Some transformations are instantaneous; some require a momentary cover or bit of misdirection. You’ll have fun experimenting with the various approaches. The most practical routine for real world performances is the one in which he uses his back pocket as a destination for the transposition.
