To use, you need to simply insert one of the supplied plastic sheets into the cutter and press down (Like a stapler). A perfectly formed plectrum will be cut.  Alternatively, why not use any old plastic cards or similar plastic materials (Upto a thickness of 1mm) to make unusual and unique plectrums.

Once cut, you can keep your plectrums in the supplied plectrum carry keyring pouch.

I found although easy to use, the plectrum’s can sometimes be cut with sharp edges and requires a little light edge sanding with fine sandpaper to remove the rough edges.

Maybe a file would also be a great addition to the contents.

Conclusion.

I really like how you get to make your own custom plectrum’s with this cutter.  The only real drawback is the rough sharp edges that sometimes happen with this cutter.  A little file would be a great addition to this kit.

Overall though this is a great cutter and an ideal gift for the musician.

    1. I bought one of these pick punches (albeit a different brand) from Amazon for my son-in-law last Christmas. It came with four sheets of material, a leather keyring style pick holder and – wait for it – a piece of sandpaper to smooth the rough edges of the picks with. Perhaps you could review fine grade sandpapers next 😉 .
      I think these pick punches are a must for guitarists as you can make sure you always have a plectrum handy. I don’t even play guitar, but I always carry a couple of picks in my handbag as they’re so handy, with the added advantage that if you’re at a local gig, you can always lend one to a guitarist who’s lost or forgotten theirs.
