Description

Our company owner Steve 'Eagle' Noon, first discovered and started importing The 'aLasKa Pik' from the USA over a decade ago. Since that date, we have introduced the unique  'Over the finger, under the nail' pick to hundreds of our customers. If you fancy trying them, we have tried below, to make it easy here for you to choose the correct sized set. Please read on, for user and 'manicure' instructions.

Easy guide sizing: The PLASTIC AlasKa Piks come in four sizes, small, medium, large and extra large

  • If you have average size hands, choose medium size for your fingers and large for your thumb
  • If you have large size hands, choose large for your fingers and extra large for your thumb
  • If you have small hands, choose small for your fingers and medium for your thumb

Please Note: if you order the wrong size, just send them back with a note to explain your problem and we shall exchange them for you. It will only cost you the postage to do this.

Please choose size from the options list ...aLasKa Piks are priced individually. (The picture shows a 'set' of plastic picks being used 

Here are the user and manicure instructions writen by the makers. Please also see the 'Red' aLaska PiK photopraph on this page:-

1. aLasKa Pik's TM. plastic  can be manicured to a preferred length:( Plastic) use nail clippers. To manicure ...Place pick securely ''over the finger, under the nail'' decide the length desired , then clip and file. 'For a side of the fingernail attack, remove plastic at indicator #1 in the photograph

2. To match the curvature of the user's flesh under the nail area, file on the backside of the picking surface (indicator #2 in the photograph) This adds security. This should be done before changing length.

3. To un-stiffen pick (plastic) remove all or part of the pressure band (indicator #3). For added comfort file smooth all uncomfortable edges.

4. Some fingernails may need to be manicured for best fit, especially the outer edges.

5. For the aLasKa PiK to work, you need to have a short length of natural nail. When you manicure your 'broken' nails, remove as little natural nail as possible when damage occurs

They can be adjusted. There is a flexibility in the fitting. You need nails of a certain length to use the picks to get the non-slip and direct feel to the playing.

I bought some Alaska picks some years ago and this was a top up order. While they still work great and allow a playing experience that feels almost like you are playing with your own nails- I did notice a dip in manufacturing quality. My first Alaska picks were well finished and smooth. This latest set had some rough edges. Seems less care is taken then when I first bought a set. Nothing that can't be dealt with by an emory board, but disappointing nevertheless. Still an excellent fingerpick.

Not suitable for classical guitar (I had asked vendor for advice).
Product does not fit well in any case.
