Pencil Through Note
A £20 note is borrowed from a member of the audience. The borrowed note may be marked for later identification if desired.
You proceed to use a pencil to pierce a hole in the centre of the note, there’s no doubt that the pencil is truly through the money. Watch the audience gasp (especially the money owner) at what happens next…you rip the pencil through the money, the audience clearly sees the pencil rip through and they can hear the sound of paper ripping! Yet, somehow the note is left completely unharmed!
You offer to repeat the effect, this time the pencil mysteriously melts through the bill in slow motion it looks unbelievable! Both the pencil and the bill may then be handed out for complete examination.
