Sharp This Review

Official Review

“Sharp This” by David Bonfadini is an updated prop that allows the performer to draw a line on anything or anyone, and then magically make it vanish. It’s a very well made prop with a handmade tip designed to look like a sharpie tip, and the gimmick can be tightened if the elastic ever becomes loose.

“Sharp This” comes with an online instructional video that covers maintenance, basic technique, as well as a rising/moving pen effect, plus a “disappearing” moustache routine. The video is very useful and the subtleties taught dramatically improve the appearance of the effect. It should be noted that the disappearing moustache effect is very much a “one off” effect, and has to be the first thing one performs, so it isn’t particularly practical.

If you’d like the ability to draw with a sharpie, then make the line vanish, this gimmick is a no-brainer. It’s a gag dating back to the 80’s, but has been updated and improved. The prop is well made and the video instruction teaches you everything you need to know. You already know if you’ll have use for this prop. If you do, this is a great purchase. If you don’t, you probably aren’t reading this review.

Manufacturer's Description:

"Sharp This" is a custom-altered Sharpie that allows you to draw a line on anything or anyone, and then magically make it vanish. Draw on your own face, across your pants, on a spectator's sleeve, on the tablecloth, or even on a car or wall. Then instantly wave your hands and make the long black streak instantly disappear.

There is a secret telescoping "line" that retracts into the tip of this custom marker, and this makes "Sharp This" a HIGHLY VISUAL magic gag easy to perform. As an interlude between tricks, "Sharp This" is the perfect way to elicit laughter and even screams. This belongs in every performer's bag.
