My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. Hello from Vancouver B.C.! I found your videos quite by accident, and now I’m hooked… I’d love to replace my shoddy home made picks with this kit, and actually start making progress!! Either way, keep up the great work and I will keep following 🙂

  2. thanks for give me this hobby, then i look at you on youtube, i think can i do that, yes i can. thank you.
    me englis is crap 🙂

  3. Being a complete novice i watch every video you make so I can learn the process of lock picking. I live in the UK and have only been lock picking for about 5 months but would like a great set of picks to help me proceed in the sport. My set so far is off Banggood a cheap and cheerful set.

  4. I have always been fascinated by lock picking. Made my first set of skeleton keys from a book out of sprung steel, 30 years ago… but not much I could use them on, but wafer locks… (no internet back then) I have watched many You Tube videos on lock picking. Now every time I watch a movie you can be sure there is a lock in my hand with a pick and wrench.

  5. G’day Bill. Looks like a complete set of tried and tested tools. This is the first set that I have seen a Bogata rake included, and a resonable price. Please put me in for the draw.

  6. Nice full set of tools. All you need in one place!
    Look well polished and strong case too!

  7. I’ve been looking for a kit to buy a friend who would like to give picking a try.

  8. Ordered the tuxedo based on review. Great idea on the shrink wrap.
    Do you have any preference on contribution method? I’ve used the YouTube button only.

  9. Hi Bill,I’ve just gotten into picking recently and your videos have really helped me. thank you, and keep em coming.

  10. I love it. It would make for a great starter lock picking kit for me. Have been wanting to get into picking for awhile now. Love your videos man. Thanks!

  11. I would like to set this to improve my skill
    if I do not win him thanks for letting me join

  12. Used these at a get together. Quality is decent, not amazing. MadBob or MultiPick would defiantly be a better choice. Good as an EDC kit if needed. Would be nice to own as a spare set or /BOB kit.

  13. Thank you for for another great video. Those picks look better than mine. Will definitely think about getting my next picks from Sparrow.

  14. Looks like a very good “first set”or a “carry every where” set.I wish my home made picks looked that good.

  15. Nice review. I have a few Sparrows and really like them but they were not finished at all like these were. In fact they were quite rough. I just thought that was the new normal, “finish them yourself or we’ll really jack up the prices” and then here you are with these, with no handles or anything and the are decently finished and the kit price isn’t too bad compared to buying them individually either. I did notice that their thin picks were finished well though and I didn’t have to do anything to them. The Sandman and Octo-rake are very nicely finished. I love their cases, they are the best deal out there and cost next to nothing compared to everyone else.

  16. Sparrows sure is a bad company to deal with! I tried to order some items from their webpage but it won't work. It says they have Paypal but when I went to check out that option was not available, only credit cards, so I tried to use my Visa card and it was refused! Also, there's no way to contact anyone on the webpage about these kinds of problems!

  17. @bosnianbill I ran into your videos completely by chance. Without any background in lockpicking, I've been watching them for weeks now – and now finally ordered myself this kit (and a lock) to play around with it myself. We'll see whether this sticks with me, but either way, thank your for your entertaining videos! 🙂 Can't wait to start picking on that lock.

  18. Thanks for the video. Think I'll get these next time I'm in need of new picks. Just wondering what this shrink wrap is? Maybe it's called something different in Australia?

  19. hey there bill i would like to know what is the real big difference between European locks and us locks.
    and what kind of set of picks is than better for European locks

  20. My girlfriend is a little old fashioned and wears one of those chastity belts. With this kit, I will finally be able to give her the D she doesn't yet know she needs.

  21. I just started picking and have learned from your channel thank you for your insight. id be interested in advice you could give in finding locks cheap/free for variety in practice. Thank you again Bosnianbill
