What do you need?
Part-time magician and fully passionate by gambling gaffs and memorabilia as well as gambling sleights, he started acquiring gaff decks to try and get the feeling card cheaters of the Far West had when they worked on a mark using marked cards or strippers. But he would always end up with the same problem, the poor quality of the playing cards. The cut would clearly be visible and anyone could spot it and see the trick.
"I told old man Webster, I don’t care about other card trimmers, I want the one you’re using."
PLAYING CARDS, CARD TRIMMERS, BOOKS, GAMBLING CATALOGS, CHEATING DEVICES ....
This site is a homage to the old card companies from the twenties to sixties that sold gaffed cards and other gambling equipment from catalogs that claimed their products were the best and compared to no others.
Over the years, we have accumulated tons of playing cards, gambling gaffs, old gambling catalogs, books and other memorabilia in order to learn how cheaters used to work their craft. We are always fascinated when we browse through an old Blue book (KC Card Co) catalog or one from Hunt & Company. We would think how great it would be to buy a combination belly strippers deck of playing cards or to get our hands on some shakeout and figure out what the hell they were anyway!
We do this to incorporate this knowledge in magic, gambling demos and in the making of magical and gambling gaffs. AND because it’s our passion to find such treasures!
DAI VERNON AND GAFFS
Dai Vernon always said that “if a fellow wants to make any kind of a reputation in cards and be known as a magician […], he must not use trick cards.” He would advise fellow magicians to stay away from such cards.
DAI VERNON’S ELUSIVE N-STRIPPERS
This article is about my quest to find out about the elusive N also called N-stripper, In-stripper, Notches, Negative stripper, concaves and more. There is still a lot of taboo when discussing these kinds of strippers.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of visiting Terry Roses famous secret lab in Minnesota. For a guy like me that makes gaff playing cards and dice, it was like visiting the Shangri La or going to a place where all you’re ...
For the last 2 years, I have worked with “Fast Jack” Farrell’s main gaffer who used to be part of his team back in the 60s and all the way to the 80s. I was able to get my hands on old vintage whip cups from a closed down gambling supply house from the 60s.

N-STRIPPERS ARE AN INCREDIBLE TOOL. MAKE NO MISTAKE - THEY ARE A CHALLENGE TO MASTER (EVEN DAI VERNON ACKNOWLEDGED THAT), BUT ARE WELL WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT. THIS PRODUCT FROM SLIM IS VERY HIGH QUALITY. I CAN'T SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH OF THE CRAFTSMANSHIP, AND THE PRICE IS MORE THAN FAIR. WHETHER YOU'RE A MECHANIC, PERFORMER OR COLLECTOR, YOU'LL WANT TO HAVE THESE.
