The book is very detailed and has nice pictures to show you what it's explaining. It tells you a lot of useful information and explains things to you in a way that makes easy sense of what they are trying to get across. The picks and tension wrench it gives you are very basic and that's the only thing that I'm not totally pleased with. But all in all I'm happy with this and would suggest it to any beginner who wants to learn the ropes. (Fun to go around your house and pick the different locks with)
Came in on time very easy read and good quality. I will be using this site for my hobbies.
I bought this item as a gift for my friends 16th birthday. After reading the manual for maybe 5 minutes tops, we tried picking padlocks of varying complexity. within an hour, we could pick two modern locks that you would find anywhere! This is an awesome package, you really don't need any more picks than this. The manual is an easy to understand, clear guide on pretty much anything you could possibly need to know pertaining to locks, doors, and cars. Admittedly, a lot of the stuff is EXTREMELY shady, but in some ways that really just makes it better :)
I learned to pick with this set when I was a teen now I got a new one. they are very hard it killed to metal drill bits to make a key ring hole to hold them together. a case would have been nice or pre drilled with a small key ring but they do the job
I wish there had been some sort of carrying case for the picks.
excellent lock picking set for a beginner. i recommend going to your local hardware store and buying a few locks to practice on.
Ok seriously, take the time to do this and you will get your moneys worth, my ony recommendation, GET THE BUMP KEYS!!!! U can't do anything without tools! All excellant tools though
Also in my first order, book helped so much gives you some history and a few lessons on various picks.
If you are looking for your first lock picking set, i would recommend getting the 11 piece set, or the jack knife set. The metal grip is uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time and can really start to hurt you hand. The book is nothing special, you can find much better references online. Lock picking is a lot of fun, and Trueswords has some great products, but i would recommend getting one of their other sets over this one.
It indeed has all the basic things you need. But warning, it has things listed in the book that "you will need" that does NOT come with the package. I recommend getting a full set, and studying the How-to's online.
This thai nagi sword is LEGIT! I already had the combat commander Gladius, and this is twice as awesome! The carbon steel slices through grass mats like butter and you should see what it did to watermelons!
