    In every aspect of human endeavor. Not the sole ill of Locksmithing, to be sure.

    The vast majority of Abus locks are high-quality locks and are more difficult to pick than, say, Master Lock Co. locks. Just for example. The Abus dimple types of locks are pickable but they are going to be higher quality than a lot of other stuff.

    SouthOrd's Dimple Picks are a total gimmick just to make more lock picks to make more money. They are just feeding the market, those picks are abysmal, to say the least. There are a few Chinese Import sets that are quite good but the only ones that I could point you to that are somewhere available, that is until Peterson International releases their dimple picks, are those by Souber Tools in England.

    I have actually picked Kaba with standard HPC picks, too. But the higher the security, the more you will need specialized tools.
