Beating Credit Cards Into Picks

A friend of mine sent me a link to the Picmaster Plectrum Cutter, which lets you cut standard-sized picks out plastic cards like credit cards or gift cards. This seems like something you would never buy for yourself but might get a chuckle out of as a gift from some distant relative.

I don’t know about you, but I’m extraordinarily fussy about my picks. I use Fender mediums, in the pearlescent white. If I have to play someone else’s pick, it feels like wearing another person’s shoes…on the wrong feet.

Still, these guys get clever-points for figuring out some way to make all that dead petroleum into something moderately useful.
