So, I had an idea. My Tuxedo set is the new one that comes with a 0.015" hook along with the rest of the thicker picks. I used my tin-snips to cut the handle at the 8.5cm mark and did the same to my after-market sparrows 0.020" Steep hook. Filed the edges down a bit and now I have a really nice quality but more portable and easier to find somewhere to put them, picks for EDC purposes. No handles means perfectly flat.
So my plan is to have, all in 0.020" Sparrows: Short hook, Steep Hook, best buster snake rake, Triple-peak, City Rake. I think that, along with the hollow half diamond from my bogota set should give me a nice handy picking capability if I want to practice on what ever lock I bring out with me or if there is a legitimate need to try and pick something.
Any thoughts about this plan? I am a resource guy, I love having little swiss army knife type tools, little leatherman micra's, etc You know. Now that I am back into picking more than ever in my entire history, I like the idea of carrying picks with me too much to not do it. I would be interested in your thoughts.
That is my 0.015 from the Tuxedo for an example.
