5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent insoles, 22 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a couple of pairs of these to replace fairly weedy generic insoles in Cat boots and shoes, and am absolutely delighted with them. Shoes fit much better (I have to buy 9's, but am realistically just over an 8.5) and the support offered in the heel area especially is superb. Good arch and ball of foot support too, and I can now walk miles with the dog without any stiffness or pain.
These seem as good, and as robustly made, as any other orthotic insole I have tried, (and I have tried a few after developing heel spurs some 15 years ago). Easy to trim to size with scissors as well for the perfect fit so there is no slippng or bunching in the shoe. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these, especially at this price.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what history books should be like !, 21 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very readable book, obviously written by an expert in the field, and more so one that knows how to communicate to his audience. Beautifully produced, with a lovely choice of illustrations interspersed through the text, making it very attractive to look at, or just to browse. This is the kind of book you could happily read from cover to cover without getting bored, or else dip into for a specific story about a name you might recognise from history but actually know very little about. Puts some meat on the bones of characters who have all, to a degree, helped shape the world in which we now live, and dispels many of the myths we take for granted about the medieval age - not a dry academic treatise by any means, but a vibrant description of real people, warts and all.
Thoroughly recommended for your collection

5.0 out of 5 stars Lush Puppies !, 9 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for mainly casual and occasional work wear now the weather is getting colder and I spend my working hours driving and visiting hospitals in the region. These definitely aren't 'proper' walking boots as the tongue is separate as in a shoe, but a robust alternative for daily wear in a matt nubuck soft brown leather, good stitching and a well stitched on sole that has enough grip to cope with wintry slippy pavements and grass verges. Strong fabric loop at the heel to help getting the boot on or off.
Having seen other reviews, I wondered if I needed to go a size up from my normal fitting, but these slipped on like a glove, no pinching at all from day one, and no stiffness around the collar putting pressure on my ankles. I could get away with reasonably thick socks in them too, for days out walking or going to the football, even more so if I remove one of the liner layers on the footbed.
So, in summary; well made, great fit, really comfortable - delighted with them

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp !, 7 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely balanced razor sharp 6" ceramic kitchen knife that is perfect for straight cutting jobs that don't require twisting or scraping on bone (as that might damage the edge, according to the instructions). Great for cooked meats, fruit and vegetables and doesn't stain the ceramic blade or taint delicate tasting food. Very comfortable, smoothly shaped handle that doesn't slip even when wet. Comes with a plastic sheath that protects both the edge of the blade and your fingers.
The edge lasts for ages if treated with respect but can be honed using a diamond sharpener.
Very pleased with this and would thoroughly recommend, especially at this offer price

4.0 out of 5 stars Open wide !, 7 Dec 2014
This review is from: Petkin Plaque Dental Kit (Misc.)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Handy basic dental cleaning kit for your dog, in a clear zip-lock bag, containing a long-handled brush with a large head at one end and small at the other, some minty (well it smells minty anyway!) paste and a little brush that you put on a finger for close control. All works well enough, and the dog doesn't mind you lifting his gums and light brushing of teeth and gums (the brush heads are a medium firmness), but recoils at the taste of the toothpaste, so that's a no-go. I would imagine if you could introduce a teeth-cleaning regime from a very young age then this would be an excellent and well used little kit, but harder to do with an older dog, who keeps his teeth clean anyway by chewing sticks. Worth having as a back-up though, and seems well enough made

4.0 out of 5 stars Mega box of spring bars, 7 Dec 2014

Handy resource of stainless steel spring bars, around ten of each size ranging from 8mm to 25mm, in a divided plastic box with each compartment clearly labelled on the lid. Enables you to replace or repair a wide range of watch straps / bands and buckles. Very pleased with these as someone who does his own basic watch maintenance

3.0 out of 5 stars Centra ring binder, 27 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not much to say here really - this is a basic 25mm 2-ring carboard folder with a lightly textured black fabric coating, that is just big enough to accommodate sheets of A4 paper.

Plus point - the rings are mounted on the back cover rather than the spine, so paper naturally falls flat when the file is open, and that makes it more stable for reading and writing on

Minus point - there is no cataloguing pocket on the spine for you to identify the contents

It's OK - it's a perfectly functional A4 folder, (I can buy equivalent quality in ASDA for less) but I must admit I WAS impressed with the Size 6 Jiffy Bag it came in - that's going to come in handy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile watch tool, 23 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent little tool at a very good price, allowing you to change or adjust watchbands with ease. Interchangeable tips mean you can pop spring bars in and out, and push the retaining pins out of watchband links, while keeping a good grip on the biro-sized metal body of the tool. It has a printed metric scale on the side, so you can measure lug width or spring bar length, and a polished metal cap that you can unscrew to store the tips inside the body.
Very pleased with this as someone who does his own basic watch maintenance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cypra Noir Laguiole knife, 23 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty little knife with a sharp tapering blade coming in at just under 3 inches, and stamped 'Laguiole Bougna', that will take a very sharp edge with a little honing . The handles are a mixture of dark hardwood and brass, making an attractive finish, and there is the trademark bee where your thumb presses at the base of the blade. Everything seems well pinned and put together, though the brass has quite a distressed finish, (I'm sure it would polish up with some effort.)
Certainly an unusual and individual item, and would look well as a desk piece, though not sure I would use the term 'stunning'

4.0 out of 5 stars Crepe bandages, 23 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three pack of crepe bandages (obviously at the thinner/cheaper end of the range) made of cotton, polyester and elastane, and providing a choice of sizes (6cm, 8cm and 10 cm) for support or pressure, and also come with little metal hooked clips that you can use to hold the loose ends of the bandage secure. They do the job very well, and are comfortable in use - be aware though that they contain latex, so if you are allergic then stay clear
