Everyone's individual preferences vary of course.
While almost all of our pick set contents have been suggested by our customers over the years, it is always true that each set contains some tools some customers may not have chosen for themselves, plus other contents they may not have desired to add.
Because of this it is not uncommon for a customer to ask "can you substitute this for that" in our existing pick set products? (Sorry no, they are already built and it messes up our inventory system.)
Recently some very experienced lock pickers worked together as a team to propose the contents of this set to us as their consensus of "the perfect basic set" for beginners. We thank them for their creativity, the investment of their time, and their desire to help others. We also appreciate their bringing their recommendations to us.
We accepted their list of contents, but put the contents in a larger case allowing room to add additional contents as that "beginner" grows in their skills.
Because of reduced packaging and fulfillment costs, all of our pick Sets are discounted 10% or more compared to the sum of their individual retail costs. So a person who likes the basic Mayor's BASIC SELECTION OF TOOLS can save money as they create their "perfect" customized every day carry set by adding only a few of their own favorites! The team who created this set will also save you money if you make your own personal custom set!
It seems this "Mayor" can look out for the needs of ALL the city's citizens!
Contents include the current "I Like Bent" tension tool set, a Peterson .050" PryBar, a Peterson .040" PryBar Lite, four of the Government Steel .025" picks: The Hook 1, Hook 3, Bogie 1, and C7 Sine Quint. Also three picks in the .018" Government Steel: The Hook 1, Hook 4, and Peterson Gem.
