Remember, you signed up for free knives from them, and while it WAS NOT their legal obligation to give you them due to a technical error, they did still sign you up for their giant mail order catalogs technically without your consent or repayment for your information.

They should have asked everyone who signed up if they wanted to remain on the catalog mailing list.

More on checking your state laws to make sure you know whether it's legal for you to own these. In most states, it's cool to own these unless you're planning to commit a crime with them. in a few states (hello, Kansas, Mississippi, and Virginia), the law assumes that anyone besides a locksmith owns these with intent to commit a crime, so it's not cool to own them for recreational use. In a few states, it's simply unclear.

I believe in SC they might be considered Burglary tools if you're not a Locksmith

I ordered these a while back. They are very cheap and flimsy. Even an experienced person will break them after a few uses. Trust me, spend a little more on a better set. Definitely do not buy these if you are inexperienced.

Now that Dawnguard is out, my lockpicking skills need a little bit of a refresher. Good thing this deal is back up - I broke my last kit breaking into the Jarl's chambers.

@teenracer6: Per their privacy policy, they "may use the personal information we collect through BUDK.com", including when orders are being placed, to "to contact you with special offers and other information we believe will be of interest to you" and also to "to improve our marketing and promotional efforts." This is standard when all orders are placed on their site, including free ones. While the order in question was cancelled, your information was already in their system. If you or anyone else is receiving their catalog that does not want it, I am sure you can contact them at webcs@budk.com or at 1-800-543-5061 and they will take you off the list.

@jessayman: Working fine for me. Are you still having issues?

@saramwrap: That lockwiki article is outdated. Kansas only considers them burglary tools if you are carrying them around on your person, doing some other suspicious activity. Even if you get pulled over for say speeding and have them with you, they can't do anything about them. Your best bet is to search for the actual laws on your state government's site.

@evanhumanist: I agree completely. You can get a good starter set from somewhere like Southord for around the same price and have something that isn't going to break easily. If you are just getting into locksport or are looking to become a locksmith, cheap picks might discourage your efforts.

This company is a joke. Purchased some gloves from them on Amazon. 2 weeks later (after paying $11 shipping and it showed up USPS...) a package arrives and instead of gloves, there is a bag in the package. After trying to contact them to no avail, had to go through Amazon for a refund/return. Then heard from the company and was told "send the bag back to us and we'll give you a refund minus shipping". As well as when asked if they had a different size of gloves "we don't carry those gloves". Oh, so you sell them but you don't carry them? After asking for a shipping label, they stopped replying to me and I'm continuing to deal with Amazon. Company is a crock.

@synergynt: Thanks for the info! I have friends down in VA, and it's been a bit confusing to decrypt the law's text there. I've read the original, and then seen conflicting interpretations. :\

Please keep in mind that even if these picks are legal in your state, they be illegal in your city, town, county, etc. If you are considering buying them for recreational play try getting good with a paper clip!
