It reminds me 99% of SouthOrd lockpicks... But I bought it here in norway from a site. "Dirken.no" But it's been down for years. It stands "dirken.no" on the pics :smile:

Yes, very similar to SouthOrd, Southern Specialties and Pro-Lock sets, i.e. stainless steel with laminated stainless handles. Are they thin like the SouthOrd "Euro" series?

I broke this of 5 years ago when I was a kid, hihi. http://gyazo.com/cef0b57f93264d183715236b82c38d29 And I lost the 5th pick from the right on my first picture..

piotr I don't know, but I guess so :) Not that much bending after 5 years. I can provide more pictures if someone wants.

Greetings fellow pick pornographer/whore/collector/connoisseur/obsessive :D

I am happy to see another member that has the same illness as Ed Smiley, MBI and myself (ahab also has the disease but it isn't as advanced :smile:, but the symptoms are definitely there). I have refused to purchase the HUK "Feather" aka "Swan" pick-set because it is an illegitimate copy of Ratyoke's original artistry, design and execution (see http://www.keypicking.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=5633&p=46496#p46496). Nevertheless, a lovely collection (or fraction thereof) that speaks of an aesthete as much as it does of a technician. I am at least 30-hours without sleep so please excuse my florid ( :wanker: ) prose.

Re: Post your pick sets!

I carry a pair of diy bogotas and a similiar pair of short hook and small deforest, I seldom have to pick any random lock but if I do, i feel confident that these are probably going to suffice.
I also have a pile of picks in various pouches that i would bring if I knew I was going to be picking locks, and I have some collector picks from ratyoke and others that don't use on locks because that would scratch them. and a large collection of some chinese knockoffs some of which I dont' know what they are used for, that I took in trade long ago, and never have used, they seem too big for anything but a folgermaximogul

My set. Not as full as I'd like, though I mainly use the DeForest and occasionally one of my rakes.

Re: Post your pick sets!

Xeo.

That's quite a collection of hooks !!

I notice that a lot of them are very slightly different.

Do you have a couple that more effective than others ? ie your "go to" hook.

Also, do you use different hooks when picking the same lock?

Last question: what brand? or home made.

I have noticed that my collection of hooks has been rapidly expanding since I got serious about SPP.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers.

Re: Post your pick sets!

The purple slim ones are Peterson gems and short hooks in .018 gov steel. I have some southord slenders with varying hook curves I use in different locks. Some of those hooks in there are home made. There are also a bunch of picks I've acquired since then that are missing from that old photo. My go to pick is a Peterson gem or short hook. When you get serious about SPP you'll want different types of hooks, a half diamond, and picks with thin non-tapered shanks to them for the difficult keyways.

Oh yeah, and the case is a Sparrows case. It is excellent.
