Up next is another short hook this time with .022 Peterson gov steel and ghost jade g10. Trying out some steeper angles on the handle for more comfort thanks for looking.

Re: the pickers home brew

Great to see ya around Eli! And some gorgeous work!

Any idea on total time invested in a single pick from start to finish? Or don't you really keep track?

Thank you very much and the average time is 2-3 hours depending on handle shape pick profile and materials used.

Re: the pickers home brew

Another beautiful piece for sure! It's really surprising how quickly you're able to turn one of those out. Not that I ever got into making a lot of picks, but when I did... one would usually take days rather than hours, lol. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful work indeed.
