5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than expected, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time. Looks very well made. Sharp out of the package. I read the reviews of the beech handled version, but wanted a full-tang knife. Had it for a month, cuts hard crust, soft loaf and regular loaf equally well, and the curved blade makes it somehow more intuitive to use. The handle fits my fist just right with the round profile, and it's the most comfortable of my kitchen knives to work with, and I have a few good ones. I expect it to last a couple of decades at least, the last cheap bread knife is still serviceable after 12 years, although never been a joy to use like this one is.... Well worth the extra cost over the beech handled version, if you want a full tang version with no rivets.

2.0 out of 5 stars and it is a good set if you want to try japanese style handles ..., 16 Feb. 2015

You get what you pay for with these. All were bent slightly on arrival. I've since had a japanese made nakiri for comparison, so I can say these were not sharp even after using a sharpener and a steel regularly. I cut my thumb twice with them as the food I was trying to cut rolled off instead of being cut through, and they had to go - sharp knives are definitely safer. On the positive side, they had well made handles, and it is a good set if you want to try japanese style handles before investing in more expensive traditional japanese knives - otherwise they would have got only one star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, recommended, 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered on time. Very good build and finish. Guitar bag of reasonably good quality. Sound is quite good for a small guitar, definitely better than I expected for the price. The nylon strings are still settling in, will know in a few weeks if it will hold tuning well for long periods. Our 4 year old was very happy with his colour choice, but was more interested in making noises with the tuning pipes in the beginning - seems to be slowly getting more interested in the guitar itself - certainly has stopped attempting to mess with dad's guitar! We havent looked into the online guitar lessons yet. I've looked around for a few weeks, and can say this is excellent value for the money - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as previous ones, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had the previous 3 years' anthologies, and this one doesn't disappoint. I've read only about half of the stories so far, and the standard has remained as high as ever. As before these have the ability to surprise and inspire reflection on one's own preconceptions and values. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the stories. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived before time. The plastic cover fits well and has not shown signs of any significant wear, although this may be because the iPad is used only at home and rested carefully when charging.
The 'free' transparent film seems to be of good quality. However, the included microfiber cloth shed so much fiber when I accidentally touched the 'sticky' side, it shouldnt have if it's truly a microfiber cloth resulting in several air bubbles underneath- hence only 4 stars. I persevered with it for around 4 weeks, but took it off recently with a much improvement in visual experience - other half's iPhone has no scratches on screen despite fairly robust use over 12 months, and the forums for iPad also seem to suggest the glass is tough enough to withstand scratches. Overall, would recommend the product as very good value for price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleased with the product, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time. The color is perfect as in the picture, a moderately bright orange as I had wanted. Has functioned flawlessly so far, with the magnetic start function for the iPad working everytime the flap is opened. It has not shown any signs of wear so far although tiny wrinkles have appeared in the folds, but I expect this is normal for the daily use it undergoes. For the price, unbeatable value, esp compared to what apple is charging for their smartcover. Will buy again, especially if the price remains the same.

Update: Nov 2013: 10 months down the line, still in good shape, with very little wear and tear. I still use it every day for a few hours and the magnetic start function is still working. I note the price has slightly gone up since I purchased it, but it's still a great price and excellent value.

4.0 out of 5 stars well made, 15 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product was not delivered the first time it was sent out. After contacting Amazon, received a replacement after a 2nd reminder. Overall not satisfactory experience. The item itself seems well made and fits on 2 of our 3 toilet seats. However, our 2 yr old has not shown much interest yet in potty training, so not been properly used/tested in practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars good product but expensive, 15 Jun. 2012

This was almost exact replacement of our old basket and seems to be the same material and make. The old one lasted for over 6 years, but had several bits falling off the bottom mesh, hope the new one lasts as long. Overall, for what it is, the price is a bit dear.
