Do you mean Schoolcraft? If so, go with him for the best available commercially

He was talking Shinano. Looks like they are made in Japan, could be a long time getting here, along with shipping.

Yeah, Tom, I am thinking of the Japanese company. I didn't link because the shop front is in Japanese, but if anyone is interested: http://shinanocraft.com/index.html

Yeah, it's not cheap, but then it's not too bad for that sort of gaff.

High prices and unknown quality. I'd pass. What gaff are you looking at?

CSB.
I may be missing something, but are the prices actually all that high? It looks like if you want a CSB that isn't Kennedy half/ Centavo/ "Chinese" you are going to pay $250 and up, and this guy is asking about $280. Am I missing better deals? Or is it more of a "don't pay for custom work without knowing quality first" thing?

If you do purchase from them, let us know how it turns out. Their Morgan set looks interesting.

Not a fan at all of the replicas.. Check some of the others Kueppers, Mark Mason, Schoolcraft and look at their prices. $280 is a little steep. Not sure if you're looking at Morgan's which would probably be more in line pricewise. Still knowing nothing of the quality and being shipped from Japan, for me, hard pass.

I do understand. For $50 you do get the replica coin included. So don't use it. Find a real Morgan and use that. The gaff is in play for only a few seconds. Easily switched out and in. Why pay $200+? I don't get it...

Because the gaff truly feels different than silver/don’t match truly to the coins I use. Silver in general is heavier and emits a sense of “class/elegance”...while I believe ignorance can be bliss when it comes to magic products (3cmx vs triple threat for me as an example), once you go silver..:it’s painful to go anyway else (for me at least)

True. The spec never handles the coin, and it's Shuttle Passed to the real Morgan anyway. I just bought this on eBay for $40.
