This effect has become a very popular one with magicians, ever since David Copperfield presented it on one of his TV spectaculars. It is the visual, and incredible penetration of a borrowed bill, by an ordinary pencil, with everything performed in front of their eyes.
In effect the performer borrows a bill. This is placed over a piece of paper of the same size and creased in half. A pencil is pushed through the bill and the paper. The crease is opened out, and the audience can see the pencil going right through the bill and paper from both sides.
The pencil can now be pulled away, ripping through the bill and paper at the crease. Yet when they are opened out again, the ordinary paper is found to be ripped as one would expect, but the bill is intact and totally unharmed!
The entire effect is so clean and convincing, that the audience can’t believe their eyes. Yet it is quite easy to perform, requiring only a small amount of practice.
Includes pencil, gimmick and 8 Bonus effects!
