Yep, Fantastic Pick thanks Ron.

Bought myself a Little Brother Pick from you on ebay and took it out for its first trip to Kingower last weekend. I was using a Fiskars from Bunnings prior to that, but it was just way too heavy and long for this Deepseeker. I'm only 5' 6", and hanging off my hip it meant that the over 2 Kg Fiskar was longer than my legs yikes

Anyway, the Little Bro is much lighter and shorter, and I love the way it digs/ scrapes. It got me to the bullets and shot gun balls in no time at all, and even makes short work of refilling the holes. Hopefully someday soon it will get to have a clunk on some big yellow mofo big_smile -Great quality handtool mate!

Hi! I’m interested in ordering one of your picks but can’t seem to direct message you as I’m new to the forum! Can you please suggest an alternative way to contact you? Thanks!

Hey Ron, good to see you're still with us! I'm still using one of your picks mate. I've dug some seriously deep holes in some rock hard ground over the last 6 months or so with the Little Brother Pick, and I'm convinced It would take a Sherman Tank to bust that thing! power power thumbsup

Hi Ron. I've sent you a PM as my pick arrived while I was at work today...thanks for posting it off so quickly....so a lovely surprise to come home to!

I'll be testing it out in the backyard tomorrow as I reckon if it will dig into the Werribee clay it'll dig anywhere! It may even get more use in the garden than on the goldfields lol

Cheers Annie


I am willing to be pleasantly surprised!

Last year we flew home from Queensland leaving our CC picks in the vehicle there. I bought one of Ron's picks online (because of the price) so that we could attend the DEWAG muster here. I was a bit concerned that it was heavy compared to my old one but once I got to use it the weight was no problem at all and the flat sides really makes a difference. It's a really strong pick that digs well and is great for scraping the soil to clear a few rocks or refill the hole.

Thanks Ron for a very good value pick.

1st Fefruary 2016 - That's when I wrote this. Since this pick has dug more than a kilogram of gold out of the sometimes rock-hard WA ground. I did brake the handle once right against the pick but filed the handle down and put it back in while out their in the field. It's never been sharpened although the pointy end is not quite as pointy as I'd like anymore so I might just have to risk giving it a touch up with the welder. It's a great pick... smile thumbsup

Hi Moneybox, Dont try welding the point its spring steel and will soften and break off, Just use the thin angle grinder blade and cut a new point not to long The best way to go, I tried hard face weld on them they just broke off, Hope this helps, Ron,
