Hey there to whoever that decided to read my introduction post.

I've been interested in learning more about locksport and what not for about a year, but as of recently I took part in a Danish IT - Security conference called Bornhack.

At Bornhack, I met several amazing people, one whom introduced me to lockpicking, and didn't mind me chilling at their camp for quite some hours.

Jan from Toool showed me the basics, had a lot of different picks, locks, and even a "safe" I could try to understand the inner workings of.

It really sparked my interest, and as such I'd like to learn more, and get into lockpicking as a hobby.

I have yet to buy any picks, or locks, so I hope that as a start that maybe some of you have some good beginner suggestions :)

Have a lovely saturday!

Hiya!
Welcome to the forum.
Are you Danish?
We have a few Danish members, some really cool guys.
Have a look around, and don't hesitate to ask questions.
Before you ask the " what picks shall I buy?" question, head over to www.lawlocktools.co.uk and have a look around. Most of our members will recommend this brand, either that or www.sparrowslockpicks.com.
There are a lot of other quality options, but heading to those websites first will give you a good idea of prices and variety.
