    I just got my picks an hour ago and since then I've been using them. I have to say, they're pretty great. The Shuriken Mini is my favourite so far, though they all feel amazing to play. They all have this solid feel to me, I don't know how to describe it. Sort of a reassuring firmness, I guess would be how to explain it. Easily my favourite picks out of all the ones I've played. I'll put a review up on your website in a few days once I've played them some more. I'll definitely buy more when I have the chance. Also, I love the packaging.

    Hey Tom. I sent you a private message on here about a possible order. Not sure if you saw it because of the new site layout.

    Is there a way I could custom order a 2mm Shiv? Would that cost any extra than a standard 4mm version?

    Thanks guys! I'm just looking at your email Leviathan, will get back to you with a quote :)
    Thinner picks are no extra charge but for most materials usually aren't any cheaper either because they use the same material blank. Just leave a note at checkout if you want picks thinned down and I'll refund any if appropriate :)
    Thanks!

    I like super-thick flat profile picks, preferably with triangular symmetry, and until now have had to import Gravity Picks from the USA, so today was pleased to discover your larger range of shapes, order incoming.

    Awesome! :) Happy to help :D The Shuriken suits that description , 32x32x6, but custom options are available too :) The flat profile Battleaxe is something you may enjoy though it is not symmetrical

    Haven't had much time for forums lately but I wanted to pop in and give a big thumbs up to Mr. Tom Winspear in regards to the custom order of 11 or so different picks I placed a while back. I feel like I have a lovely "tool set" of picks now. Nicer than pretty much anything I've owned in the past.

    Sandstorm material is the stuff!

    Are you able to laser etch that into the other materials (especially Sandstorm)?
    I'd love to have a couple more picks with that sweet logo.

    Yes I am :) They are 3d engraved with a V cutter by the way, no laser in the shop as of yet :)

    Soon...

    Just bought one of your limited edition Bloodstained bone shiv picks, maybe next year you could have a bloodstained Shuriken model as well? The Shuriken seems to suit my playing better, honestly.

    Ditto on ordering one of the Bloodstained picks, super stoked for it to arrive! I really hope you used your own blood for those :p

    I'm not too concerned about the shape, personally (Broadsword player here) as IMO it'll be more of a showpiece than a playing tool.

    Yeah, I'm considering not using it at all just because it'll look really cool and unique.

    Thanks so much guys! Hopefully, I could perhaps fit the width of a Shuriken Mini onto my usual bone slabs :)

    Anyway - I just wanted to post in here for now to say I wont be posting anymore in this thread for the foreseeable future (also why I didn't post the Halloween promo here). It looks like vendor membership rates for the website have been hiked five-fold. As much as I'd like to maintain this thread it would probably have a negative ROI for me with the very high new prices, so :(
    I'll still be around the forum casually as usual! You all know where to follow the company :) <3

    That's good, I'll look forward to that haha.

    It's a shame you won't be able to post here anymore though. Still, good luck with everything and thanks for the great picks!
