Kyoto 16 piece Cutlery Set - £3.40 delivered at Halfcost

Found 27th Nov 2009Made hot 28th Nov 2009
Ordered the Kyoto 16 piece cutlery set from Halfcost thinking it would be fine for a spare set - I was extremely surprised at the quality, the cutlery is Rayware and very stylish and good quality.

Thought I would add once I had received the product as you never know what the quality will be like, whilst the free delivery is on I have ordered two more sets.

The MV15 code worked for me.

Can't see this on there?

Its definately there....i have just ordered 2 for Christmas. :thumbsup:

Heat and rep added!

The site is very sloooooow!

cant go wrong with free del as well:thumbsup:

im going to try again on this site but im not getting my hopes up, very frustrated :-(

great buy heat n rep added

link broken?

Still there, but site is crap. Tried again to order but keep getting timeouts

Sod it, given up. Have yet to make a successful order from that place!

Did a traceroute and it fails at the same hop every time. No point carrying on trying if the data never reaches the server!

More likely that that particular hop doesnt respond to ICMP requests.

tried to order from these yesterday and after 5 tries at checking out I gave up.:x may be cheap but not worth the stress....it shouldnt be that hard spending money :-D

I am exactly the same - tried on many occasions to order 'bargains' only to end up frustrated and ready to smash the monitor..... have given up even trying now as never ever get to the checkout phase...

Same here .. nice price, but i've never actually managed to buy something from them lol

Ditto. I have been trying for the last 3 hours on and off to place an order. :x

Great price but terrible website and even worse company often selling sub standard goods. To get a refund you have to wait for a manager to call you back and this can be anything up to 10pm at night!

anyone know about the quality, brand, finish, grade? Cannot expect much for this price though. I bought a great set of 18/10 quality which are beautiful. should be at nearly £100 for a set of 44.

the website has been slow for days. if they can't be bothered to sort it out then I can't be bothered ordering from them

I think mr halfcost is running the server from his home PC. Rediculously slow. Wont be checking that site again in a hurry.

The brand is Rayware and they have 18/10 stamped on the spoons and fork. The quality and finish are both very good.

Just wondered why this has been expired? There are still 74 in stock, I … Just wondered why this has been expired? There are still 74 in stock, I know the site is shocking but by expiring the deal, surely it will stop people looking (or maybe thats the idea).



72 now :thumbsup:

Ordered 1 but it took 3 hrs to do it. The Site is very slow, had to override the cookie handling in the privacy settings in IE also had to use a PC with IE 6 as the site refused to access the checkout on IE 8. Hope this site is secured and my details have not been hacked.

Went up to £3.99. Still a good deal.

It was a painful experience, but eventually I managed to order :thumbsup:

Goodluck to anyone who can be bothered to endure the torture that is [url]www.halfcost.co.uk[/url]! Any saving you might have enjoyed will be lost in the time you take off work to get the order placed :whistling:

Well.. I finally succeeded after trying for about an hour with 4 different browsers. Don't think I'll be shopping at halfcost again unless they fix their awful site.

Site seems to be working OK this morning. Just ordered – £3.39 delivered.

Maybe you should read the OP's post fully :roll:

2 sets ordered here :thumbsup:

2 Sets for me as well, there is one benefit for having to get up with the kids at the crack after all

Finally ordered this morning, much quicker than yesterday.

Website is a complete shambles however.

You need to use the discount code mentioned above - MV15 to get the 15 % off (15% of £3.99 = £0.60p) this will make them £3.40 per set.

Unless they were £3.40 before....

Get them while you can....Only 8 sets left there were 92 sets when I ordered last night .

3 left now, finally got an order in!

All gon, aftr trying for about 5 hours to order! ARGHHH!

well after a week of trying and only 9 left in stock i finally managhed to order them. was going to take a look around at other things but could not be fecked after the length of time it took me to order the cutlery!

there is still 6 in stock if anyone is interested..checked a moment ago

Wouldn't be so sure...I ordered some when there were 9 in stock and I've just got an e-mail saying they're out of stock and my money will be refunded :x

I just got an email to say its in progress, so hopefully I'll get them.

i received them today by home delivery network. they're excellent quality - on par with viners - and come with a rayware 25 year guarantee! a bit fancy and will take a bit of getting used to! not the bog standard crap i'm used to! lol!!

I have a problem with my delivery, I am at work during the day there is no one at home to received the package unfortunately home delivery network will not leave the package in my garden in a safe place. With hindsight I should have used my work address as delivery address. And also the depot is to far away to collect it.
