Heavy Weight Ben Franklin Poker Chip Set. Made with Lasers!

These snazzy looking chips are dazzling to behold, and will bring a sparkle to your table!

14 Gram Laser Graphics Chips

Made with *actual* lasers, we think these chips look fantastic. Ok.. kidding about the lasers aside, these do look nice. Here's the skinny from Amazon's product description:

This Ben Franklin 14 Gram Heavy Weight Poker Chip Set is one of the most sought after poker chip sets on the mark. The laser graphic inlay sparkles in the light as the chips are tossed around the table. The soft Clay like feel enables these chips to play like authentic casino chips at a fraction of the cost.

This set comes with 500 chips, "metalic" case, cards, dealer button, and dice, and all for only $44.99. Not bad, though the phrase "clay like" tells us these probably substitute flash for authenticity. Did we mention they were made with LASERS!

How Much Wood Would a Wood Chuck Chuck?

wood.gif

We have decided to begin a quest for wooden chips. Imagine a luxurious dark mahogony chip, with hand-carved inlay. They would be conversation peices and they would simply exude sophistication. We suspect that sophistication would be lost on our druken poker buddies, but we don't care, we want them anyway!

Sadly, while we don't have actual wooden chips today, we do have wooden chip cases!

The Poker Chip FAQ

As we were browsing to see what kinds of interesting chips we could find today, we came across this interesting FAQ on chips.


What are American style clay chips?
That is the name given to the type of chips manufactured in the United States starting in the late 1800's and continuing even today.
So these chips are made of clay right?
Not exactly. Originally they may have been clay, but for the last 75 years or so they have been a composition of materials heavier and more durable than clay.
How are clay chips made?
The real clay chips are compression molded under extreme pressure and temperature. 10,000 lbs psi and 300F
What about all these injection molded chips that I see advertised as clay?
Beware, all injection molded chips are plastic. Some are made with a clay like filler added, but they do not have the same feel or handling of true clay chips

Deffinitely handy for the novice chip buyer.
Head on over to PokerChips.com for the whole FAQ.
