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,



The ntb-1.25 mm is stunningly gorgeous, and sounds as good as it looks. The material is from the same manufacturer as our legendary red and flame series of products -- same incredible smoothness and warmth, balance, lush tone, and quietness across the strings. Folks, this is the closest you will ever come genuine tortoise shell, and I say this as someone who has played the real thing for forty years.  


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


35-day return/refund/exchange, no questions asked. These don't come back, but we stand behind every product with the longest refund policy in the industry. If you're not happy, we're not happy. As I like to say, "We'd rather lose a sale and make a friend."


Thanks for reading!


Please allow at least two to three weeks for delivery. Sorry, casein is a mutha and we're perfectionists. Also, casein varies somewhat in thickness pick to pick. We work hard to get this one in the range of 1.15-1.25 mm. We hand finish everything, so we're a true artisan shop. 


Thanks so much!
