Bellroy Men's Leather Very Small Wallet Black
Bellroy Men's Leather Very Small Wallet Black
Offered by Bellroy EU
Price: £45.00

3.0 out of 5 stars but doesn't feel strong enough for a good tug. All in all, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe it's just the quality of the leather, but I couldn't tell the difference from a quality plastic.
The zip isn't as substantial as I expected of a wallet of this price. It sticks and jams a lot, but doesn't feel strong enough for a good tug.
All in all, OK, but doesn't 'feel' like it's worth £40.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Varifocal Prescription Glasses, 28 May 2014
Have two pair of these with varifocal lenses.

If like me, you play merry hell finding a wraparound style that will take a varifocal lens, then these are for you.

Great in that they don't allow a light leakage around the frames, which I like as I spend a lot of time outdoors.

Really comfortable .. apart from not being the cheapest frames or lenses, I can't fault them.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a load of rubbish, 26 Dec. 2013
Don't waste your money. Either poorly thought through (who would think to print try a make a table top map so small), or never looked at after printing. Either way a complete waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Built like a tank, 11 Jun. 2013
After several (much more expensive) stove, finally happened upon the Bulin.

While not the lightest out there, it's built like a tank. Build quality is excellent, and finally a stove that looks and feels like it'll take a pot that weighs more than half a liter of water in a titanium pot !

2.0 out of 5 stars Chris Ryan - Medal of Honour, 24 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Medal of Honor (Hardcover)
What a waste of £2. Never really gets started, then it ends. Really needs to be a lot longer, it isn't like material is hard to come. Really rubbish.


Flashing Steel: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Swordmanship

5.0 out of 5 stars Great place to start, 14 Dec. 2002
Flashing steel is a great place to start for anyone studying or thinking about studying Japanese sword technique.
I struggled to find Korean Sword form material, and since Japanese and Korean swordmanship have influenced each other so dramatically, found this a very useful reference piece.
Flashing steel not only provides useful photos and form/kata references, it introduces the metaphysical as well.
There will alwys be the debate between Korean and Japanese sword styles, and who influenced who. Setting aside the politics and accepting the influence each had on the other, Flashing Steel provides any swordsman a useful insight to their art.
