PEN-ETRATION AT ITS FINEST
This effect can be purchased in the form of a beautiful, stylish capped business pen, or you can purchase another, less expensive version, appearing as a long, sleek, black-plastic capped pen. Both pens utilize about 98% to 99% similarity of form, function, effect and routine, The benefits of the Chrome Writer are its offering a classy image with a sleek, beautiful, shiny metalic appearance and its obvious, better-quality, manufacturing -- built for greater impression and quality performance. As Peter says, the effect ends clean and can be immediately reset promptly, with ease, for the next spectator.
A magician of well-practiced skill can repeat this effect without detection. I would go so far to say that this pen is examinable, but that depends on how much you trust audience behavior. If you want a pen with an image, then I highly recommend this pen over the black-plastic versions, but both have their place. I would use the black-plastic version at school or in casual clothes, and save the more elegant pen for those special occasions at a dinner table, business meeting, street, small stage or (as an) impromptu effect. Another great asset of either version of each pen is their portability -- the Chrome Writer being a little shorter to fit business shirts. Careful, though, the cap on my pen attaches loosely and might disconnect, so use care and check yours, often. Maybe you can get creative and think of a way to keep the cap on more snuggly, such as with a little double-sided tape. Perhaps this chrome pen is better used in a dress-coat interior pocket. In my opinion, this pen is definitely worth the extra few dollars of investment. This effect and routine have a solid reputation among magicians and are often used, professionally, so don't do as I have done and underestimate this effect!!! I learned my lesson and now keep this trick in my daily magic bag!!! Easy to do, but simplicity doesn't mean the "shock value" isn't there!!! Get yours, today, but carefully guard the secret!!! It'll pay off for you and stun your spectators!!!!
