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,



This is the thinnest casein tri we've ever offered with grip holes. (In fact I believe it's the thinnest in the industry with this feature. ) At only 1.15 mm thick (1.10 - 1.20 mm, hand finished thickness), this is a very popular model and at great entry into the amazing word of high-quality casein picks. Tortoise-like tone and tortoise looks to match. The closest you'll ever play to the real thing.


As with all our products, it's precision machined, cut and finished, then hand tested in our 100% quality control department before leaving our building. And it comes with FREE SHIPPING!


AVAILABILITY: We can never make our casein models fast enough. Demand has always outpaced supply for all our casein products. We target to fill these orders, first in, first out, at 5-10 days from time of order. Wish we could pedal faster, but we're a tiny artisan shop with impossibly high standards of perfection and playability.
