“I’ve got multiple models of the imperator, and that’s because of its one of a kind shape/design. The tip is sized perfectly for heavy riffing, and allows for clean lead playing. Will definitely keep getting more.” -JRC/Johnny
“The material of these picks is incredibly slick off the strings. So comfortable to play with.” -Robert H
“... I’m absolutely speechless and blown away by the beauty and quality of this epic pick. The finish and detail are absolutely stunning, I can stare and hold this pick for hours, thus resulting in lots and I mean lots of guitar playing 😁. Then comes the sound or the attack, it’s absolutely crisp and makes the strings sound and ring out beautifully. Honestly, if you haven’t purchased one, then please do and you’ll be blown away the the immaculate craftsmanship of these hand made picks, I will be purchasing more very shortly and probably start collecting these because they are pure art!!!“ Marcin T
Not only is this a fully functional guitar pick that produces phenomenal sound, it is also a great conversation starter. It's a relic of the POD. So if you and your friends are fans of the movie, they'll get a huge kick out of it. It glows so bright it can’t be ignored, and we can even drill a hole so you can rock it as a pennant like Jack Black. A must have for collectors and aficionados.
You might get cut just looking at it. Reminiscent of a haiku depicting a sword fight in the dead of winter. The false Ivory is the closest to the real thing as you can get. This one is a spin on a classic plectrum made from coconut. It's thin figure is a tool for speed and agility.
“Love the grip and feel of this pick. The added texture from the "blood" makes it even easier to grip and it looks killer. The attack and picking accuracy of this pick is second to none.” -Scott B.
“This seems to be the pick I’ve always been looking for. I already notice a difference in my playing, and even though it’s very thick it is never unwieldy.” -Diogenes S
“The Blood Reign Spearhead plectrum is great — comfortable to hold, doesn't slip or slide in your grip, and produces a clear, ringing attack. Plus, it looks great. C'mon — you know you want one. And buying a fun and classy new plectrum is a great way to satisfy your GAS without blowing the bank!” Lorenzo G
Right when I started using the pick I noticed my picking speed and accuracy increased tremendously! I also used to struggle a little with pinch harmonics and now when I use this pick the thickness makes them really easy!”- Guitars B
Musicians spend plenty of time and energy looking for the perfect instrument, yet settle for any plectrum. The Iron Age LFS-Centurion is the premium guitar pick for tone, grip, quality material, & the snazzy logo! Iron Age delivers no matter what plectrum you purchase, yet, let it be noted that the LFS-Centurion is a top tier game changer.”- Chris C
“Love this pick! feels really smooth because of the self-lubricating thermoplastic! for me it feels like it give a little less attack on the string but it makes the playing so smooth that i just cant play with another pick!”- Daniel K
“I am mostly using Thor’s hammer for vocal accompaniment and lead work on a cedar topped acoustic . . . Wow! I instantly had more volume, brilliance, and still maintained the warm resonance of the instrument. My audience noticed too. Very impressed.” - Edward S
"... This pick is incredible from top to bottom. Beautiful design and craftsmanship. Very comfortable to hold and play with and virtually no pick noise on the strings of my acoustic, which many other heavy picks like this suffer from. The smooth beveled edge makes trem picking a breeze despite the overall thickness. It's gonna be hard to top this pick, and I've tried dozens of boutique picks from all over the internet.” - Caitlin V.
“This pick is fantastic. The shape may seem odd at first, but it really allows you to choke up and get a secure grip, and the extra height helps to anchor it in the hand. The thickness is great - Not too cumbersome, but also thick enough to have a hefty amount of mass behind each pick stroke. The pick also has a surprisingly good amount of grip to it.” - Jordan G.
“This gigantic monolith of a guitar pick is surprisingly super comfortable to grip and the tone is massive!”- James H.
“Since I received this pick, I've used it on several different tracks both in the studio and for live rehearsal. Let me just say, this is the best purchase I've made in a long time. Especially for something most people overlook, like a pick.”- Josh F
“I love how massively THICC these picks are!! I was surprised to find that the back side of these picks had a nice little scoop for your finger, absolutely enjoy using them! Love the material and the glow these have as well!” Alex I.
