Leatherman Multi-Tool SideKick by Leatherman
3 of 5 people found the following review helpful
I bought this as a replacement for a cheaper multi-tool that had worn out, and although expensive, the difference is really noticeable. The build quality is much higher; the action seems more solid and I haven't yet had the need, but the mechanism looks more readily adjustable for if and when the joints start to go slack through use. I've gotten most use out of the knife, which comes seriously sharp; or at least much sharper than the old one.

Cons: The selection of tools on this particular model is modest; make sure to pick the tool that best meets your needs. My main objective on this one was price, and since it's one of the less expensive models, there is a corresponding… Read more
5.0 out of 5 stars Rare - Product that actually works!, 31 Mar 2013
Compeed Blister Plasters are absolutely brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going..., 12 Feb 2011
I bought this book for my university course in Physics on recommendation of the lecturer leading the thermodynamics classes. In this respect, it does its job.

However, it is *extremely* heavy going. You will not want to read this book as a gentle primer. The detail is more comprehensive than you are likely to require for an undergraduate course, and for this reason it is likely to serve you well as a companion in postgraduate study. However, the breadth of the material covered sacrifices approachability and the small amount of context given is dry and unconvincing. This title will serve best as a reference book for the details of calculations which you may have missed in the… Read more
