Introducing the UglyPick

A rough draft of an ergonomic design I dreamed up after a slip of the rotary tool messed up a pick I was rushing out.

Why would anyone want a handle shaped in such a way? Well perhaps the next image will shed a little light on that.

Not perfect by any means, it still needs a lot of smoothing and polishing on the handle but it is very comfortable to pick with and passes feedback to more of my hand as intended. All and all I'm happy with the design though it's not as beautiful as most of the picks on here.

I like it! Looks like it may bite my thumb a bit where the last curve wraps around. Keep us posted on it's development Logan.

Great design! You should call it snake!

Cheers :)
Pictures in my posts are gone due to a policy change by my hosting provider that caught me unprepared. I'll work on that. In the meantime left click the image and open it in new tab, you should be able to see the picture, with a selection of unrelated advertising and banners all around it.

Re: Introducing the UglyPick

Might even be more plausibly deniable if you require that sort of thing. Though it might be seen as a weapon of some sort?
Would be interesting to try out.
Where /what are you using for stock?
