I was originally going to market this as a seperate item. The gimmick (yes. there is one) can be made by anyone with a few moments' work. The gaff is made out of two playing cards.

The billets should be made of relatively stiff paper, to make the handling easier. The dummy billet is finger-clipped between the fleshy base of the right thumb, the the center joints of the second and third fingers. Also held in the hand is a pencil - which both justifies the curled position of the hand, and also helps to accomplish...
