Lansky Deluxe Knife Sharpening System
Lansky Deluxe Knife Sharpening System
Offered by UK Prime
Price: £31.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Puts a pretty clean, even edge on a blade, 26 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Puts a pretty clean, even edge on a blade, but it's fiddly for small / thin blades. Don't bother with the leather strop extra, just get an old belt and some stropping / abrasive grease. Watch out, the grips can mark a blade, as it does tend to wobble / move about in the jaws (use some tape to pad them).

2.0 out of 5 stars Heart monitor is totally inaccurate, 26 Nov. 2015
Heart monitor is totally inaccurate - if you don't believe me, try checking it against your chest strap monitor. It lags, it's inaccurate, it's next to useless if you do any exercise where HR is important.

This is a good sharp bread knife that feels very nice in the hand. It's dishwasher safe. I'd recommend this, with the only caveat being that the scallop edge blade is cut on one side only, so it does veer slightly to one side but as bread is so soft that's not really an issue and you can adapt to it.


Outdoor Revolution Movelite Kombi Driveaway Awning

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic outer tent and overall design, but flimsy interior that ripped!, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the whole this is a fantastic piece of kit. It seems well thought out and there's lots of attention to detail. It's very easy to blow up, but you still need two people to erect it, especially if it's windy. We loved everything about this tent, very light inside and the awning is really clever. It does weigh a ton, but then it is a massive tent! It's literally like a marquee inside. The interior sleeping compartment isn't huge - if you're over six foot then your feet or head will be up against the canvas. Very strange they made the interior compartment so small - you have acres of space and they could easily have added another 6 inches or so to give a bit more space to sleep in.

Unfortunately the side of the interior sleeping compartments ripped on the very first night we used it. If you have young kids (between 4-7) then you might want to think carefully about such a large purchase, as the interior is made of the finest, most delicate mesh you can imagine. And with the tent being so big, it's like a magnet for every kid on the campsite. Our kids were messing about in the tent as kids do, one of the little ones fell on the zipped up interior, and it ripped a hole near the top along the zip. Very disappointed as that sort of accident is bound to happen with kids and it should be capable of withstanding that. But after discussing it with Outdoor Revolution and the supplier, I wondered if it hadn't been badly sewn in the first place, as the material didn't actually rip, it just sort of pulled away from where the zip was sewn, so maybe it had not been sewn in properly.

Outdoor Revolution refer all requests relating to warranties back to the seller so be prepared for this. But fair play to them, they decided we could claim on our warranty and replaced the inner without a problem - in fact it arrived before I'd had time to wrap up the other to return it! Very good service and pleased our tent is back to new!

The plots are rather weak and twee, but the pictures are great. If only she had someone else writing her stories...

I didn't really like it, my 4 year old son didn't really like it. Weak stories, not enough excitement to interest a young boy.

Great product, really cheap. The only thing I would have liked is some clear snaps rather than the weird colours (magenta, really?).

2.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable with weird heel shape, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things fit the front part of my foot and they seem to be the right length. But the heel is enormous, and they just flap about on my feet. They seem pretty well made (very sturdy leather) though there was a lack of padding to cushion the foot, but I couldn't wear them.
