If you're like me, you want your pick to be fine on the edges. I took one of these black filing sponge things and filed the whole thing down with it.

Step 5: The Finished Product

There was a company back in the day that made these back in the late 90s I still have a few of them. Some of the best bass picks I have ever owned. Now I want to go find them and make some for my self!
