The 5mm round tip version has the most dramatic bevel I've played yet. I'm not sure that all the varieties are all this way, but the round tip version is beveled only on one side of each playing edge (left if it's pointed away from you) not beveled on all sides, so only the edge that strikes the string is rounded off.
The craftsmanship on the pack I received is great. Playing with a 5mm pick takes some adjusting, but the tone is bombastic and well worth some effort.
If you want to try something different, and you enjoy thick picks, these are well worth the money. If you enjoy playing guitar with extra-thin, cellophane guitar picks, you might want to try something more intermediate like a Jazz III first, because the 5mm thickness is pretty extreme.
