Protect your cards from warping and keep your case looking like new with our Classic Clip from Joe Porper. Inspired by the original Porper card clip first introduced in the 1970s, this modern edition is engineered from lightweight industrial-strength aluminum for lifetime resilience and ultimate protection.
Our Carbon Clip is beautifully inlayed with 100% genuine carbon fiber. Unlike the synthetic we've used in the past, these offer a high-gloss, mirror-like finish, with a deep 3D luster. Easily the most striking clips we've ever produced!
Designed to hold 52 playing cards inside their case. Available in Brushed Aluminum (silver) and Black.
Manufactured by Joe Porper in Los Angeles, CA exclusively for Dan and Dave.
I never leave home without a porper clip, but now it's never without my carbon clip. This clip compliments cards with dark tuck boxes as we'll if you choose the black one like I did.
The thing about this clip that really impresses people is the carbon fiber inlay. The pictures don't do it justice. As you wiggle it back and forth, It shimmers in sort of a holographic way that makes the inlay look thicker than the metal of the clip. I get a "whoa!" out of every person I show it to. However, at more than twice the price of the synthetic carbon version, you definitely pay for that extra bit of style. For that reason, I give it 4/5. If they ever went on sale, I'd probably buy another one.
For me, I know how long the clips last and I only needed a new one because I lost my other 2 while moving, so I figured if I'm only going to have one card clip for the next several years, (as was the case with my last 2), I may as well get the most interesting looking one I can find. If you have the money to spend on it, I can honestly say it is a beautiful clip, the photographs above are very true to the look of the clip. If you don't have 95 bucks to drop on a clip, go with a standard Porper, the extra money really is only for the look. You have to decide if that is worth it to you or not.
And like everything that Dan and Dave/ Joe Porper make, I am sure the clip will last me a long time.
