These picks are 2.5″ long. They are made of 16 gauge, round, 316 stainless steel. For those who are not up on their gauge sizes, 16 gauge is the thickness of a penny. So if you lay a penny and this pick on a flat surface they will both be the same height. You will never have to buy or throw away a tooth pick again. They clean up easily and never rust. Class up your appetizer plates with the Super Skewer Appetizer Pick.
