5.0 out of 5 stars Great to use., 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this a while now. I sealed the back with Timberland Waximum and have had no trouble with the dye coming off on light material. This makes the leather darker - which is also nice.
The XL is BIG. Plenty of room if you can carry the weight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised - but not useless!, 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I get really annoyed by firms that wildly exaggerate claims - and this is one of them.
The can says "120 plus full uses" but I meticulously counted the uses and was very careful with the timings and got less than 100 full uses. The can carries the EU 76/211/EEC estimated contents symbol so maybe I just had that one unfortunate can!
The can says "Private preserve blankets the wine's surface". This can't be right; it reduces the amount of oxygen by adding inert gases but forget any idea that the Private Preserve gases sits on the wine surface, the gases just mix with the standard air in the bottle. Check Wikipedia under Gas | Dalton's Law.
The listing on Amazon says "Wine Preserver prevents oxidation". This should be read as reduces oxidation.
In my opinion using a CO2 pump (as in cycle tyre inflater) is nearly as good but the CO2 is not inert and does affect the wine a little. Also I find Private Preserve a little better than the VacuVin vacuum pump. The cheapest solution is to decant the bottle into 3 or 4 smaller bottles with only a small air gap at the top. This is much cheaper gives better results than Private Preserve.
Having said this I am still going to buy another can because I don't always drink a small bottle at a time and a can is tidier than a CO2 bicycle tyre inflater.

Delightful Foo dogs. Plenty of detail, even on the cub. Nicely finished. Good value. Lions look forwards rather than off to one side.

4.0 out of 5 stars 43mm gap between brush rings., 10 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully crafted. The chrome has a warm hue so clashes slightly with my Edwin Jagger razor. The gap between the two brush holder rings is 43 mm so my Edwin Jagger medium brush balances precariously on the bottom ring. I would say this best suits a large brush but the medium just about stays put!
