  • Beautiful

    posted bySparrowhawk on 01/26/2009

    Gorgeous looking knife! Nice wood handle goes well with the polished blade. Quite large - blade a little over 3 inches and seems very solid and strong. Came good and sharp. Shiny blade... I don't want to use it in case it gets marked! Very illegal... Read more

  • Nice knife

    posted bySparrowhawk on 12/09/2008

    Looks great, lovely shape open or closed. Needle-sharp point. Pocket sized, nice and small but not [i]too[/i] small. The flat bit of the blade is not very sharp at all. It's very stiff to open, definitely needs two hands. Maybe if I loosened the a... Read more

  • Great knife

    posted bySparrowhawk on 11/23/2008

    Beautiful knife, nice weight to it but not too heavy. Easy to open with one hand, either slowly with the thumb studs or quickly by pushing the lever and flicking your wrist. Snaps open with a satisfying 'snick' sound :) Nice and sharp, looks great... Read more

  • Brilliant (literally!)

    posted bySparrowhawk on 11/23/2008

    And I thought sku.1254 was bright! This makes it look very dim indeed. Lovely bright light with a good throw, hurts your eyes a lot to look at directly. Has a simple on/off switch with no modes. Good weight, while it doesn't feel too heavy it does... Read more

  • Powerful!

    posted bySparrowhawk on 10/27/2008

    Powerful lighter, makes a nice sound! Build quality seems pretty good except for a little flashing left on. It looks nice. Big gas tank (it needs it!). It came with the tank about 1/3 full. When I got this I was very disappointed in the flame but... Read more

  • Really good lighter

    posted bySparrowhawk on 10/27/2008

    It looks and feels really good. A good solid metal feel to it, not cheap and tacky like I was dreading! Came with gas in. It has a large flame, this may mean it goes through gas rather quickly though. Can be hard to screw the 'bullet' back on. It... Read more

  • Great torch

    posted bySparrowhawk on 10/27/2008

    Very bright! The light goes quite a long way, with new Duracell batteries it can light up most of my garden! It's not as heavy as I was expecting from other reviews, it has a nice solid feel but is easy to carry around in your pocket. Fits in When... Read more

  • Great little things

    posted bySparrowhawk on 10/06/2008

    The laser is perfect for playing with the cats without risk of frying their eyes! A good little laser ideal for pointing things out and so on, not that strong but no less than I expected. As for the LED, it's amazing! Maybe the one DX tested was a... Read more

  • Go green - buy a laser!

    posted bySparrowhawk on 09/17/2008

    It's bright! Very visible beam at night, even under a streetlight. In a lit room and by day I can still see it, even (veeery faintly) right under the light bulb. Came in a fancy box with batteries, which was a nice surprise. Build quality is the a... Read more

  • Brilliant!

    posted bySparrowhawk on 09/16/2008

    It burns! I can light a match from 3 or 4 feet away. It has a visible beam at night which is quite beautiful actually - all full of little sparkles. Once focused correctly it burns things well, it can light a match almost instantly and I can etch... Read more
