Master Class 13 cm Precis Utility Knife by Kitchencraft
Bought this via Prime just before Xmas as an urgent stopgap replacement for my excellent old 13cm Henckel Paring knife whose handle finally gave up the ghost after over 10 years of heavy daily use.

On balance I'd advise spending another £20+ on a better knife thats more likely to last you a few years

Regrettably, rather than taking the time to go out and buy a litre from a local DIY store I made the mistake of spending more online by ordering a can for Next Day Delivery via Amazon Prime. It arrived bursting out of way too small a box [the kind usually used to post hardback books] with no protective padding inside and in consequence was severely dented making it hard to open and reseal, whilst the measuring lid was completely smashed. It follows that I can only give this Amazon… Read more
