January 1, 2024: We have switched all our products to offering only right-handed speed bevels. This is the industry standard, and customization really slows down our processes. If you prefer any customized options, please see our note and pricing in the checkout box.


Long story.  The short version is this. We found a couple of sheets of this stunning material way back in 2016 and bought every sheet we could find. Then we ran out and couldn't find any more. 


We spent more than three years scouring the planet for more and couldn't find any. Finally, in 2022, we struck paydirt. We found a few more sheets halfway around the world and DHL'd them directly to us here in California. I doubt we'll find any more. 


These particularly models are (still) mostly fabricated mostly by hand, much to our chaigrin, so please allow approximately three weeks for your picks to ship. Thank You!


I must say one more thing. Everyone in the boutique world says their picks "sound like tortoise shell." Well, they can't ALL sound like genuine TS, can they? I bought the last TS picks from McCabes Guitars in 1977, after CITES went into effect. That's  more than 45 years ago, folks. I've been playing TS picks longer than most of my competitors have been alive. And guess what? These really DO sound like tortoise shell picks. I'll stake my reputation on it.   


This pick comes with FREE SHIPPING to your door.


Thanks for looking,




Casein is really hard to work with. The blanks are in the barn, but please allow at least three weeks for us to wave our magic wand and turn them into world-class picks. As you've probably heard, we're driven perfectionists. 


The nfb-1.25 mm is stunningly gorgeous, and sounds as good as it looks. It's from the same manufacturer as our legendary red and flame casein products -- same incredible smoothness and warmth, balance, tortoise-like tone, and quietness across the strings.


This gorgeous blue casein material is a world-wide exclusive to charmed life picks. We are honored to offer it to you.  


Casein varies somewhat in thickness from pick to pick and is very hard to dial in. We aim for a range of approx 1.20-1.30 mm on this one, and sleep pretty good at night when we get close. 


Thanks for reading and visting our site.
