There are many, many lockpick sets out there on the market. Most of them differ only in minor details: a different pouch, a different number of picks, subtle variations in the shapes of some of the picks, variations in fit and finish.
The SouthOrd set isn't noticeably different in design or in its pouch than any of the others out there. But there are two important details that distinguish it from the general run of the mill. The first is that the SouthOrd picks are better finished than many — smoothly polished with no raw stamped edges. It should go without saying that this makes them work more smoothly and go in and out of a lock more smoothly.
The second important detail is that they are stainless steel.
Why is this important? Well, two reasons. First, it enables SouthOrd to make the picks slightly thinner, which means that they will slip into more easily into narrow or space-constrained locks. But the second is that one of the mechanical properties of stainless steels is that they are very tough. This means that stainless picks are more resistant to breaking. Oh, you can still break one off, I'm sure. But you have to be more careless and abuse the pick more to do it.
So if you're a security geek, give this set a try. Of course, don't use them on any lock you don't own or have permission to play with.
