3.0 out of 5 stars OK but quality control problems, 6 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK for price but quality control problems

The tool is ok for the price but I would not have wanted to pay more. The spring on the scissors had been badly assembled and the blades did not spring open. A 2mm Allen key was needed to put it right.

The tools good features are -
The pliers have a spring and the tool comes with a pocket clip - features not found on most of Leatherman's much more expensive tools.
It has what I hope will be a very useful tool for opening packages. I could have used the tool to open the Wingmans clamshell packaging. This had apparently been designed to maximise your chance of cutting yourself whilst opening.

Non of Leatherman's tools [unlike some Swiss Army Knives] include a pen, one of the most useful tools of all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 19 Jan. 2015
A disappointing book. The title led me to think that it might be about the British blockade of the Central Powers. It is not. A more accurate title might be 'Food shortages in Germany and Austria-Hungary during World War 1' because that accounts for most of the content. However, I recognise that such a title might not have the same shelf appeal as 'Ring of Steel'. There is little about the mechanics and difficulties of blockading, the British political and military motives in blockading and the effect of the blockade on shortages of other war materials. It is mainly about food shortages and, to save you reading the book, everybody got hungry and then they got cranky.
Watson makes the point that the war was started by a very small group of people, mainly from Austria-Hungary, and then sold to the masses through propaganda. Disappointingly, very few of them were punished at the end of the war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought it for the Twenty Palaces story [still hoping that there will be another Ray and Annalise book. They are too good a pair of characters to be allowed to die] but stayed for the rest of the collection. A very enjoyable collection of stories at a real bargain price.

I have had a Spyderco Sharpmaker for a while and have been very satisfied with it. This model is much improved on my earlier model and well worth the cost. It can do much more than sharpen kitchen knives.

Very good product. The joints are remarkably strong and the product is well made. I expect to use pocket joints a lot now they are so easy to make. However, I wish I had got the K4.
