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.

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!
Very good quality
By far one of the most versatile picks that exist. This is my go-to medium hook, and also can be used effectively to rotate pins (such as with Medeco locks), although I prefer to use an 0.018, or even 0.015 for this. That being said, this is still one of the 8 essential picks that I use the most frequently from Peterson.
Was skeptical about these picks but now I'm a believer. Huge difference in quality over the others on the market. These just plain feel better in my hand which as we all know is 90% of the battle. Thanks for the great made in America products Ken!
