    I found one of the butterfly picks at a jam,on the floor. It does look a finger nail. I want to have a supply of these, but cannot find them for sale on any site, store,or shop. Where can I buy this style of pick.

    A good question – this is an old article and the website mentioned is no longer running. A quick search on Google, though, reveals that they’ve simply changed their name. You should be able to find your answers here:


    I’ve also taken the liberty of changing the link in the review.

    It’s worth noting that they’ve changed their design a bit since I first wrote this review. The picks are much more streamlined (and I’m already thinking it’s time to get myself some replacements!).

    Hope this helps!
