The Pick Punch should be a Steetfighter special move, but it is in fact much more mundane, and arguably more useful. Looking a lot like an office stapler, the Pick Punch works like a paper hole-punch, only it is strong enough to cut through old credit cards, and deposits 351-style guitar-picks instead of confetti.
According to a review by the Gadgeteer, the resulting picks are smooth edged. The problem is, they’re not sharp-edged. If you have used a store-bought pick, you’ll know that the sides taper to a single edge, sharp (ish) and not squared off. You could address this problem with a file, but as picks are about the same cost as the small-change people sometimes uses to play their guitars (and damage their strings), then it’s hardly worth the bother.
On the other hand, this will let you use all the plastic crap that drops through the mailbox for purposes of good, instead of for landfilling evil. Credit cards, store-cards, over-packaged CF-card boxes, anything that will be stiff enough to twang a string can be recycled for your musical experimentation.
It even offers a measure of security: chop the chip, and a section of numbers, from your Visa card and you can toss away the rest free of fears of identity-theft. The price for this fun, practical yet ultimately superfluous piece of musical stationery? $25, and the company will even sell you sheets of plastic to chop through.
