5.0 out of 5 stars That's not a torch.... this is a ....no wait forget that... *puts torch away*, 15 Feb. 2011
pros -

Perfect for fitting in your pocket, a drawer or a car glove box (for emergencies)
Sturdy enough for tradesmen, handy if you don't want to carry a head torch about.
Quality metal casing, textured for a little grip.
solid off/on dimpled rubber click button on the base - easily found in the dark.
Bright at short distances.
Includes batteries.

Cons -

Very small strap - might fit round a couple of fingers but not a chance its going over a wrist.
Poor illumination at over 5 meters.

Overall -

An excellent little torch and at three for five pounds and free delivery - its a bargain. Who needs a million candlepower anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for tradesmen or DIY projects., 15 Feb. 2011
Pros -

Excellent knife with a very solid feel to it, one problem with Stanley type blades is the build quality and design - they have a tendency to break or seize up over time. This product is of a very high quality and can easily cope with heavy duty use. The opening action is very smooth and it locks with a good reassuring click.

The blades are very easy to change - there is a quick release mechanism so unlike the older style of Stanley you do not need to open up the casing just to change a blade. No more screws and small springs to worry about - never mind the time.

The lock feels very secure and is is simple to disengage when you want to fold it back up. Folded it is very compact.

The design looks very modern, the metal has a nice finish and there is a clip on the back to attach it to your tool belt. The handle is slightly curved and feels comfortable in the hand - the clip could possibly rub on the palm with extended use - can't say I have noticed anything though.

Cons -

It doesn't come with replacement blades so buy a pack if its a big project.

The blade is obviously not retractable so you can't set the depth to make quick precision scores or cuts.
