Where to buy lockpicking tools ?

Short question -> Do anyone know / have experience with any online stores that sells basic lockpicking tools for affordable price and ships them to europe ?

( Yes, i know google is my friend, i'm just looking for something better :) )
( And don't worry, I don't want to break in anything, i just want to do some home practice :P )

Take a loot at SSDeV. They should send to Italy as well. ;)
Are you looking for anything specific?

Not really. I know some theory and I'd just like to get confidence with picks and wrenches to try some practice :)

Thanks!

Now especially for price comparison, any other suggestion is welcome :)

Where abouts are you in Europe mate.
I know of a few places in the UK I get my kit from, but that may be of no help to you.

Not in europe, but in the states, I've found a pretty good variety at gun/knife shows... Or you can always make your own depending on what your trying to open.... From a fellow lockpicker, remember a skilled picker can pick as well with a 7 piece kit(my first kit, will always be my favorite) than with a 72 piece beast of a kit.... Just my .02 Oh by the way, I'm a newb to this forum....

QFT!

And welcome to EH.net! even newb's advice is welcome! ;)

Try some (local) lock picking groups/entheusiast sites. they often have links to good sites with info and places where you can order your hardware. In holland we have www.toool.nl.

Re: Where to buy lockpicking tools ?

Hacksaw blades and street sweeper bristles work well for making your own set.  There are plenty of instructions on the net for doing so as well.  Back at Defcon in '03 one of the competitors I was up against actually hand made his set and had only been practising for about 6 months.  He took top honors that year.  I've attached an image of the final challenge that year.  IIRC he opened his door in just over a minute...

For what it's worth, here is a video on making your own set.

Funny how things happen. I was just at ThotCon and Ryan Jones talked about making his own set with street cleaner bristles.

Re: Where to buy lockpicking tools ?

I've seen that method mentioned a few times, but I have never  been able to find any bristles, even walking down the street after the sweeper went by.

I've got a set I bought at a computer show, but I've never been able to pick the padlock I'm trying to train on. 10 years and counting. I know I'm doing something wrong, just not what. :)

Re: Where to buy lockpicking tools ?

Have you had a chance to sit down with someone who can do it? They can usually tell you right then and there what they feel while picking and what you should look for. It really helps.

Re: Where to buy lockpicking tools ?

to a point. One of the local security meetings, had lock picking night. Ended up spending more time showing a couple of people how to use the shim on the combo lock.  The key locks and picks were more utilized at the other end of the table, and more about one uping each other.. Nothing wrong with that.
