I was just about to ask the same thing. Also, anyone know of a good file to use for making your own keys? I can only find the triangular ones in hardware stores and it seems that the angle they create is too steep. I succeeded in doing one key, but it would be easier with a square file i think.

My suggestion would be to try Sears \ Home Depot \ Lowes as they have a wide selection of files. I got mine from Lowes here in FL.

My understanding is that the Tomahawk is quite a hard item to get a hold of. I've seen them for sale on other lock picking sites but to purchase them you have to be a "Certified Lock Smith". If \ when I find a site that offers them I will post the link to the forums.

And if you find a site that sells them - you better share too :D

I bought mine from lockpicks.com

http://www.lockpicks...PROD&ProdID=585

I think it works very well. And it's only $15!

I paid through Paypal... they never questioned it. I ordered it on a Friday and it was here on Monday. Highly recommended.

I saw (somewhere) that someone had used a bit of bendy plastic with a bit of chopping board attached (the cheap white plastic type)

rather than just use a little bit and attach it to something bendy,, I cut an entire strip and bent it backwards and forwards in the middle (to make it flexable)

Takes me a bit sometimes, but it works... Could just be my dodgy bump key or technique!!

Here's a video of me using the striking tool I make called a LOXWAT (Lock Swat). We sell them in the UK www dot ukbumpkeys dot com. Check out the vids and pics and tell me what you think. I'm a complete convert.

A variety of websites sell bump hammers. I own one of the original kebump hammers, and honestly, I actually prefer using a screwdriver handle for my bumping. Go figure.

Use a semi-bendable ruler with a rough pad on it :smoker:
