Yes it has a straight edge and it's flexi but it has a bloody great blue strip over the metric scale. Our helix top ruler designers smoking bananas? Don't waste your money if you want to measure anything.

Now I'm not about to complain exactly - this ruler was only £0.96 including delivery - but be warned that it is seriously thin, flexible & easily snapped.

For permanent life on the desktop (& we're not talking your computer), it could have a long & beneficial life, but if you're thinking of carrying it from A to B, then I'd seriously recommending saving that quid & getting something more substantial.

On the plus side, the measurements are easy to read with good clarity & it's very lightweight.

Star Trek's Captain Kirk stopped by my place the other day and I thought nothing of it when he asked to borrow my blue-tinted Helix ruler to help him plot a course through the Neutral Zone that would avoid Klingon and Romulan patrols.

Kirk and my ruler had only been alone all of five minutes when I heard a most awful sound - like a million pieces of acrylic crying out in terror before being suddenly silenced.

When I rushed back into the room, imagine my horror at seeing a sweat-soaked Kirk, grinning maniacally, his wild eyes illuminated by a bright band of light, holding a piece of splintered Helix in each hand.

Scratching my head in utter disbelief, I snatched one section of ruler and immediately scrutinised the somewhat jaggy writing.
And then it dawned on me.

Turns out it wasn't Shatner Resistant (let alone proof) after all.
Read the small print very carefully people - even if it's jaggy and actually quite big.

On a side note, the ruler's not very good at helping you draw straight lines (wavy edge), or measure things (sensitive to heat and cold) - and that was before recent events.

Who knows, perhaps it was precisely these shortcomings that precipitated said recent events?

I'm pleased to report, though, that a sharp acrylic splinter is just the thing for use in emergency tracheotomies with a Bic Crystal ballpoint pen barrel, as it will puncture even the toughest windpipe.

I purchased these at a time when I was ordering lots of things for the return to school. They cost 57p each then plus p & p ( I bought 5). They did arrive within the time stated but were slow compared to all the other purchases from a variety of suppliers. It was only much later that I realised they were charging me £4.55 postage and packing. A total rip off - they weren't individually packaged as appears on the photograph, they simply came bunched together in an envelope folded in half and stapled down one side and were sent 2nd class. I notice now they have decided to add an extra £1 to purchase price and are offering 'free!' delivery. Someone is having a right laugh at my expense! The rulers are easy to read but a bit on the flimsy side.

Good quality item. I needed it for my A-Level exams and it was everything I needed. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of a scratch exactly 16.2 cm along the surface (which was probably just me when I was taking it out of the packaging), and a small lump at 28.8 cm (which is probably just a random manufacturing error). Otherwise it's great.

I have seen that another reviewer has already posted, however it isn't shatterproof. Not that this is any drawback for its' usability or accuracy though.

Aside from this, Helix has always been a brand I have trusted, and this product is no exception. I can't say very much more about it though, it's only a ruler and it does straight lines!
