2.0 out of 5 stars Think this a chinese knock off, 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ive owned four of these pens and this one is the first that does not have a depression with parker logo on the top of the button. Also the engraving of the words Parker and logo look dodgy and lacks the usual refinement. I think its still a good knock off and at 5 odd pounds its not bad

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Geez where do i start?? I have a lot of earphones (Senn mx580, 880, titans among others) and i have been looking for a decent set of headphones for awhile now, I wanted something that looked good but more importantly sounded great. The sound part is particularly important as i listen to numerous genres ranging from dubstep to classical and everything in between so having a crisp high end, clear vocals, forward mids and a strong bassline (that does not dominate) is crucial to my listening audio experience. I bought these based on all the positive reviews and even a youtube vid that concluded these sounded better than beats solos and well.....i was blown away! these are truly amazing across all the genres i listen to and tick all the boxes i previously mentioned. The construction is solid and you have the benefit that it folds up as well. I got the black and red one, the red flat cord just pops on the black :) Picked it up for £59 and amazon took a further £2 off and gave me a £2 mp3 download voucher.

In summary these headphones present great value for money and are sure to be a hit among both average listeners and new audiophiles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for an amazing collection, 29 Jun. 2012

I was so skeptical about buying this because the price looked ridiculous for a 100 classics, i expected poor quality or possibly samples, but what i found was a beautiful collection of music of great audible quality (although i am no audiophile). Definitely a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for the Scales, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well the product is amazing as with all swiss army knives. I am a true addict and have several but this one is to much of a minimalist tool for me, but i bought this purely so that I can swop its scales with my swiss army explorer which is my edc knife. This way i get "plus" scales with a pen for my explorer and a back up knife for less than the cost of importing just a set of "plus" scales. This is because its extremely difficult to get the explorer plus model here in the uk at a reasonable price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My initial impressions of its size was quickly abolished as this piece of plastic could not store information for more than an hour before it requires reformatting every time you plug it into my laptop. Totally unreliable and thats the last thing that needs to play on your mind when thinking of storing important info on a usb drive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Something just isn't right..., 11 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had one of these for many years before it was stolen or perhaps lost. This replacement just doesn't seem right. The click sounds harsh and the refill tends to clink around on the inside. Worst of all, the pen doesn't have the usual lustre but instead looks like signs of light oxidation almost. tried cleaning it and it seems its the metal thats the issue. Also, it didn't come in the original package and the refill was changed to a gel type. Its confirms my theory that this stock of pens was probably lying in its packaging for ages in some warehouse or store...possibly why the refill needed changing. There are other reviews of the original package being absent and a changed refill. One star for super quick delivery and one star because it writes well. Just really disappointed about how it looks.

Quick delivery, got it two days. High quality laces that have already lasted twice as long as the original pair on my boots. Ordered the brown and was quite happy that it matched my boots perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sharpener!, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great piece of kit, received this today and used it on both my swiss army knifes and my Leatherman Charge TTi. For those that said it wasn't good on dull edges, I think you using incorrectly. My Leatherman S30v blade was as dull you get, hadn't been sharpened in about 3 years, it took me about 10 min with this Victorinox Sharpener to get it razor sharp. Like really, it shaved the hair off my arm now. The sharpener itself is well made, read some comments about it looking cheap and poorly made, not sure what happened to those guys. Its made in Germany and appears to be the same standard as all Victorinox products (excellent). Yes its plastic but for this price you don't expect a platinum handle. Its lightweight and compact enough to slip into any bag and would probably sit nicely n your pocket if you wanted to keep it there while camping. Really like the fact that there is a honing stone and an edge maker which allows you to get an amazingly sharp blade. By the way my thumb has two cuts on it, one from each swiss army knife after lightly touching the blades, learnt my lesson by the time i got to my Leatherman :) Great sharpener, would buy another one if i happen ti lose this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Swiss Army knife Ever, 29 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once a boy scout always a boy scout.....had one of these when I was young and lost it on a camp. Ended "upgrading" to a Leatherman Charge TTi, which is probably the lightest from the full size multitools but over the years it began to feel too bulky and heavy (232g) for everyday carry. Decided to get this Explorer, didn't need to read much on the quality and guarantee on these knives as I was very accustomed to them. Did take me awhile to choose which one would be best and by far this was the best bet. For its size (4 layer, 91mm), weight (105 g) and functionality, I think its one of the best everyday carry knives in the Victorinox range. Yes its missing a saw but in the urban jungle I think the trade off with the magnifying glass is a much better option, both functionally and reduces weight. Also I have a saw on my Leatherman if I'm going camping but to date I think Ive used the magnifying glass much more in the last few weeks compared to the saw on the Leatherman that I've had for 5years. One more important thing, this is one of the few swiss army knives that have a phillips driver at the top of the handle rather than mid way on the back, makes huge difference in the functionality of the screwdriver.

Ive also purchased the mini screwdriver (£3) that inserts into the corkscrew and theres a small hole to store a straight pin near the corkscrew hinge so now its closer to the explorer plus (which i can't seem to get here in the UK) with the exception of the ballpoint pen.

All in all, its a great knife, razor sharp, easily pocketable and doesn't weigh you down like other knives with more functions (most of which you don't use). Best ever.
