A member of the audience chooses a card from the pack and then places it back. The magician throws the pack up into the air and stabs the cards with the sword. The chosen card is seen impaled on the end of the sword. Cambridge magician and friend Tony Middleton gave this to John Davenport in 2015.

This clip, found in a Davenport store, is almost certainly a simple place setting clip, but Davenports would not have overlooked the fact that it made an excellent way of displaying a card or an envelope. The letters D.R.G.M. are stamped on the clip, so it came from Germany.

The magician shows a snake basket on a table top which is itself on ornate nickel plated tripod legs. With the aid of a turban and some snake charming music, the magician shows the snake to the audience. A member of the audience takes a card and the whole pack is placed in the basket. After some byplay, the snake reemerges with the selected card in its mouth. This consists of several separate items: table top, table legs, snake basket, turban.
