5.0 out of 5 stars Useful little gadget., 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very useful little gadget and how they produce and sell them for this price I don't know. I use it mainly for crimping shot to the line after a lifetime of using my teeth and now finding false ones aren't up to the job! This little beauty does the job and cuts the line as well and being made of stainless steel I don't expect it to rust. If you haven't got one then treat yourself and buy one - you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value., 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a few people have said this is excellent quality but not as one or two people have said oversized. We of 3xl size usually have stomachs and what fits round the chest doesn't always fit round the tummy! This jacket does, however, fit well and has plenty of pockets for a multitude of uses whether you are a fisherman or gardener or just walking the dog. it is well made and stylish and the wife is pushing me to buy another in a different colour! Excellent value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would hazard a guess this gives out about 20 lumens of light although it doesn't say so anywhere in the description. Similar types on Amazon claim to give up to 100 lumens but are much more expensive. It has a click switch at the end and a pocket clip and seems solidly made. For so little money (less than £4.00) it is enough for a multitude of uses and good value.
UPDATE. The torch stopped working on 23 December '14 just 6 months after purchase. Now unable to recommend and not worth the cost or aggravation of sending back to retailer. Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't fault it., 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fabulous cover which I have had and used every day for some months now. It fits exactly. I can't find fault with it and if it ever wears out I shall not hesitate to buy another one. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing charger., 22 Jan. 2014
My daughter bought me one of these as a birthday present but I had not used it much when one of the charging units stopped working. I didn't want to disappoint her by asking her to return it so now I can only charge 3 batteries at a time which is not a lot of good as most of my gadgets use four. It does have one advantage however as it will also charge C and D cells unlike many other chargers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so hot starter., 22 Jan. 2014
This was a replacement for a similar unit that was returned to the large electrical retailer after it stopped working. The first time I came to use this starter I found it had lost its charge so had to resort to the jump leads. Probably my fault as you are supposed to charge it every two months - but who can remember to do that! Also when it is on mains charge the red light does not come on as the instructions say it should and neither does the volt meter show the voltage, so you don't know whether it is charging up or not. All you can do is wait the twenty hours on charge and then press the red button to test the voltage. Not very satisfactory but then you gets what you pay for I suppose. It's a shame no one, to my knowledge, makes a starter that you can plug into the mains electricity and so use straight away as most flat batteries occur at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it., 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as it is much cheaper in the long run than using Lamy cartridges. Not had any problems with it but do make sure you buy the correct converter for the pen you use. I also have various colours of bottled inks and can change colour whenever I please. Recommended.

Not much you can say about a pair of scissors except these are extremely sharp, just the right size and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cut above the rest., 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't praise this razor too much. I have used Philishaves since the early 60's (I still have at least seven of them) and this one is streets ahead of the rest. It gives a really smooth shave and doesn't cause any problems for my sensitive skin unlike some of the others. I have no wish to go to one of these wet electric shaves (too much hassle) so this dry shaver suits me just fine. To clean it you just rinse it under the tap and leave to dry for an hour or so. I only wish Philips would bring back the much more substantial cases (complete with mirror) to keep the razor in that they used to supply.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Razor., 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decided to treat myself particularly when I found out this company is the only one that still manufactures razors in England. Its a fabulous piece of kit, exceptionally well made, shiny chromium head, just the right weight and a handle that is long enough and with a lovely feel to it. Now for the sting in the tail... I would have given it 5 stars but it doesn't give me a better shave than my very old Gillette or my twin blade co-op razor with the rubber handle. However it does have the quality that the other two don't. If you can afford it or are looking for a really nice present for the man in your life then give it a try. It will be well received.
