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. Working on a lock on a boat dock and kicked my new Tuxedo picks in 20ft of water,GONE. Would love to try the Tuxedo Royale.

  2. You are one of the very few people on youtube who’s recommendations I respect enough to follow through with a purchase.

  3. These look fantastic and like its all you need as a beginner, but 39$ is probably more than I would want to spend :-/

  4. I would love to win them!!! I’m new at lock picking and I would love to have a good set of picks learn with. Thanks for all the info video. Enjoying learning from the Pro

  5. Please!!! I’ve been wanting this set for ages now, I absolutely love it and I really enjoy lockpicking a lot! It would be so awesome if I win….

  6. I have a cheap ebay set of picks I have broke a couple of them,as I am far from good at picking at the moment,I keep telling myself when I get good ,or do I mean consistent, I will buy myself a good set ,but I keep putting it of in the hope of winning a good set on here,why DO i DO THAT,this is a person whom on a regular basis has never won anything ,I’m just gonna have to bite the bullet and get hold of MAD BOB and wait the 5 weeks for delivery,so this is your last chance Bill.(lol

  7. I live in the Netherlands and I want the tuxedo royals so much because I am a beginner and here in the Netherlands they do not sell th tuxedo

  8. I’m just getting into lockpicking, because of your videos and I love it! It’s quickly becoming my new hobby, so I want to take your advice and get a good lock pick set first, so even if i don’t win this, I’ll probably buy it after anyway 😀

  9. I would so love to win this! I’m a Fan of sparrows as it is and was looking to purchase these exact sets. Never been much of a “winner” but thank you for the opportunity. You are the man! love the videos! Thank you for all your dedication and time .

  10. I’ve been looking for a new pick set. I’ve ordered from Sparrow before, not disappointed at all, great stuff. Not to mention these videos are great too. I’ve learned so much from just watching them. Thanks a lot Bill for sharing.

  11. great prize .015″ would be great over this side of the pond ,lets hope lady luck is shining on me this time

  12. I’ve been using homemade sets for so long, I can’t wait to get started with a professionally made set.

  13. It’s Nice set of picks. Better than the few i made myself.
    But mine let me open my first lock

  14. Thanks for a great show. Would love some new picks, so I can keep picking locks, while i watch your videos : )

    1. I see they make a Bomba Royale with .020 ” picks, but it is heavier on rakes than hooks. I’d like to see all the hooks in all 3 sizes. That’s just me though. After that, the Bogota types in 3 thicknesses, the low profile triple rake, the worm, and that hybrid. I have never had much use for the L rakes. Balls, double balls & half balls are okay for dimple locks. I bought the short, euro, medium hooks and a Bogota in .015 when I got my Tuxedo kit. Time to buy new hooks, as I do bend and break them with use.

  15. H Bill
    Just wondering if you have a dedicated contact email that you can deal with help correspondence on picking troubles !!
    Yours gratefully

  16. Pretty neat stuff 🙂
    This set got some new profiles of 0.015 that would complete my older single 0.015 picks from Sparrows.
    Keep up the good work!

  17. I just bought the 7 pin ultimate challenge lock from Learnlockpicking.com, and those narrow picks are looking like what I am going to need. The .025 picks are always getting stuck or over setting pins. Definitely worth the $30.00, but I would have liked to see a couple TOK tensioners included. Really appreciate your attention to detail.

  18. According to the Sparrows wesite, the Short Hook is .020 thick, the Euro Short Hook is .015 like the rest of the Picks in the Royale set. Sweet set.

  19. Im austin i watch your youtube videos everyday ive watched all of the vids since you startud the channel

  20. Would be super cool to have as a beginner. Though is there really that much of a difference that you need thinner pick for the locks here in Europe

  21. Looks very nice, but they also look a bit rounded. The city rake or the snake rakes for instance look a bit … dull?
