5.0 out of 5 stars Aggressive in action, but brilliantly simple in design., 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably best used in conjunction with a strop or steel to achieve a full and refined edge. However, this is a great tool for restoring sharpness to dull blades quickly and reliably, without resorting to--say--a grinding wheel. Perfect in the field, as well, when your workshop tools, or whetstone are not to hand.

As mentioned elsewhere, there's no easy way to cross reference locations to recipes, except by skimming through the book. Otherwise it's full of varied and interesting ideas.

In many ways, it doens't matter how good or bad these clamps turn out to be. At this price, if they don't work, you have amaze and amuse your friends at how the seller manages to manufacture and ship them from China at little more than the price of a First Class UK stamp!

Light, comfortable, not too bulky. Maybe just too warm even for autumn temperatures for my liking. (But that's probably not representative, as I am acclimiatised to living in a cool and draughty old house!)

Great sock. Well made and comfortable. The only minor irritation was that I was looking for a sock made with CoolMax fabric. This showed up in the results on Amazon, but when I received the socks, it turns out that they aren't made from Coolmax.

Unsurprisingly, but unfortunately adds bulk and weight to the otherwise elegant Nexus 7. Otherwise it pretty much does what it is supposed to in terms of protecting the Nexus. One minor niggle is that if using your finger, rather than a stylus, to tap at the edge of the screen, the raised edge of the MOFRED can be a hassle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite life-changing. But almost., 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this coffee maker having read the reviews and being slightly sceptical about whether it could be as good as it was said at this price. I've spent most of the summer traveling and living out of hotel rooms. As I I was unwilling to pay exorbitant prices for bad coffee, and with an expresso maching being impractical, opted for the Aeropress.

I have to say that I wasn't disappointed. Once you get used to the technique (check out Youtube for excellent tutorials on how to use it upside down, for example), the Aeropress yields impressive results. Espresso style coffee is rich and fully flavoured, and if you follow the instructions properly, it has none of the bitterness that you often get from commercially produced coffee--even from the best known high street retailers. In fact, I was surprised to find just how closely a really smooth espresso tastes almost like rich hot chocolate.

There is no going back. I now prefer Aeropress coffee to the French press or coffee produced from a commerial or doestic coffee maker of any kind. One last point: you will find metal filters on sale to replace the paper ones that come with the Aeropress. I haven't tried them, because--in the end--the paper ones work out at about only a penny each anyway. But, more importantly, the great benefit of the paper filters is that you can eject them with the "puck" of coffee grounds, straight into a bin. This significantly reduces any hassle of rinsing and cleaning the Aeropress once you coffee is in it's cup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed!, 22 Sept. 2014

Excellent sharpener! It created an edge on a machete that I had almost given up on for weed clearance. I have also used it on kitchen knives and various old penknives and knives that had virtually become redundant. Worth using with a steel or strop to finish and remove any burr, but perfect for rough outdoor use. I have a scythe for the grass in my paddocks and I use a boat stone to keep that sharp. I'm pretty sure that the Blade Tech will do as good a job--and probably better--with less effort and fuss. I was so happy with my first one, I bought another 4-pack, so I have one in the workshop, the car, on my toolbelt, in my office and one to give to any sceptical friends!

Used with a catering "blow torch", this works a treat. Haven't found out how long a can lasts yet, but it turns a brulee brown in seconds!

I've said it all in the title really. Nothing not to like about this as a serious entry level acoustic guitar. If you get one, I hope you have as much fun as I'm having with mine!
