Review From Andy Martin’s Website
So how many more card boxes can you handle? This beauty from Joe Porper is my all time favorite Card Box. When I first received it I couldn’t figure out how to get to the second compartment – this is always a good test! I have not seen a card box using this method before but, based on the booklet that comes with it, I’m pretty sure the basic idea is not original. Of course no one makes them like Joe Porper!
Apart from the very obvious: that this box is flawlessly machined and works perfectly, I really like this box because the “flap” is totally under the magician’s control. If you want to put a card in there, switch it, and then retrieve the original card you can. And you can do this right under their noses, with no magnets or other devices to add or take away. The whole box is totally self contained. The only potential problem with this card box is the weight: 11 oz. That’s a heavy block of metal to be lugging around in your pocket.
Now for the price. Well $375 seems like a lot for a card box, particularly as we all already have a bunch of these boxes lying around. My suggestion is to sell all your other card boxes and get this one instead. It is that good. It also comes with a great booklet from Magic Inc.: 50 Ways To Use A Card Box.
