Our robust Gov Steel Peterson Gem offered in a Plastic Handle. Our top selling GS Plastic Handle (Government Steel Plastic) Series Picks, are made to our "EURO" design approach that incorporates a reduced "shank" height for easier pick access into key ways that were designed to be restrictive. The hard fiber filled handles readily transmit every vibration from your picking, and the pick's light weight makes them extremely agile and responsive. Our Government steel is a legend in itself: Our proprietary steel is high tensile, but at the same time it is ductile instead of brittle. The textured handles insure your grip is secure. Many people however favor our Rubber handle picks when available in the profile they desire (also in Euro design). These customers may work in colder or hotter environments and they enjoy the insulating characteristics of the rubber handles. Others in this group may have arthritis, or just enjoy the comfort that rubber provides. I myself also enjoy rubber handles, and as I tend to place my fore finger on the metal shank while picking I can also feel the vibrations from the lock.

I depend upon H1, Gem, and H7. I really like the wider shafts, especially in the .015 picks. That said, the broader blades aren't better than the narrower profiles. Both versions in all three steel thicknesses have a place and should be in any professional tool bag.
.025 thickness is too thick for most usage .
REPLY: NOT TOO THICK FOR NORTH AMERICAN LOCKS.
Stinks to ship this small item for $9.15
REPLY: I AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THE POSTAL CHARGES BEING TO HIGH, BUT THAT IS WHAT THEY CHARGE US - SO WE JUST PASS IT ON.
My first choice every time!
The best hook you can buy. It is the first pick I pick up every time. A true gem!
so far so good
Comfortable, Great Quality
This pick is very comfortable in the hand and is easy to use.
my new "go to" pick
Loving the versatility of this pick profile. The flat tip and crisp corners make pin placement easy.
Don't even worry about it. Buy one in all three thicknesses and they will be the first pick in the lock 99% of the time. My all time favorite.

What can I say….. if you don’t have a Gem, buy one, you won’t regret it. This Pick eats locks!
