    Fantastic knife but some improvements to be made,

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Fantastic compact little knife. The blade itself is smaller than the handle but i guess this is ok as you may have big hands. There are some markings on the knife but only something like 154cm stainless. Knife's very sharp, on opening it I tried to cut the ...
    Cons:
    Build quality is questionable but for the price simple maintenance is expected once in a while. For example there's a sort of r...

    Great, cost-efficient sparkle tool

    posted by Robwj on 08/02/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Firstly, the sparks are very effective in lighting dried grass etc as they stay light for a short, but long enough as the magnesium burns away.
    Cons:
    You have to wear down the layer of something that covers the magnesium to get sparks to start coming off but once you have worn...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Usefullness: Fantastic because you know whenever your bored the first thing you find is the 10 pack of neodymium magnets from dx. 6mm so can fire using your airsoft gun (also this isn't advised).
    Cons:
    Expensive for what they are despite strength. Paint comes off with general use which makes them look tatty to say the least. 6m...

    Great quality, worth the small price tag.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Really cheap. Good quality leather and nice stitching around the case. Usually more expensive. Says Zippo on it.
    Cons:
    Reverse of where the button clips onto can scratch your lighter but I just put a tiny bit of tissue in it to prevent scratching...

    Very good flints

    posted by Robwj on 04/07/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    These flint stones work perfectly with zippos which is basically why bought them. They are also cheap. I bought a single pack of flints (6) for 99p and with this I got three times as many flints for roughly the same price. GREAT. Says "Bradford PA etc...
    Cons:
    Don't spark everytime. Build quality is questionable because of this. Aren't zippo quality but for the cheap price you can't go...

    Great lock picks for a great price

    posted by Robwj on 03/29/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Great build quality for such a low price. Really good for use with padlocks as there is a range of pick types allowing access to different formations of the padlock's pins.
    Cons:
    Some picks are quite similar. Case is packed with strong tape and so makes it really sticky when taken off but if you have a go...

    Visible, cheap worth the money

    posted by Robwj on 03/29/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Great visible beam indoor and outdoor even in the daytime. Burns trash bags as described. Good battery consumption on AAAs. Works well on fresh AAAs and not too badly on low batteries.
    Cons:
    Batteries rattle a bit in the casing and when unscrewing the casing it does squeak but it doesn't really bother me. Didn't pop ...
