Thanks for sharing.

got one of these that lives in the kitchen...cant go wrong for this price and last for ages...

These are excellent quality. I had one for about 10 years on my keys, then one day turned up at the airport and forgot to leave it in my car. #gutted I had the slightly bigger one with scissors.

Hot, just remembered my maestro is being upgraded so I cannot purchase it yet, god dammit.

Was going to order this for my dad for Christmas.

The knife he had since he was younger was confiscated in the airport because he forgot to remove it (cuts apples with it). He had it for ~30 years, feel so gutted for him

Very similar happened to me - I forgot it was in my rucksack. Had it for over 20 years ...

Luckily, they were sensible and let me go back out of security, and I managed to scrounge an envelope, wrapped it in tissues and posted it back to myself. It was waiting for me at home when I returned from holiday.

Father & son!?

I have a very old one similar to this once given to me by my brother. Has always been on my set of keys and still comes in handy after all these years. Lost the toothpick of course, who hasn't?

I'd get this as another last minute gift for my dad but 7.99 for one day delivery

Haha. Doh! X)

Had mine for over 10 years, would get another at this price but really not a fan of the corkscrew. Hot from me.

can't go wrong with this. I have had a similar one for ages and it's just been great

Why don't you like the corkscrew? Take it your a tee totaler?

Heat! These things are invaluable! You never know when you may need the services of a SAK! (_;)

Click and collect up to 4pm on christmas eve from any of the 300 screwfix stores for only £10.99.

You could try this. Looks like they just changed out the corkscrew for a phillips.

Had one for 20+ years. It's never used so sits in a drawer somewhere in the kitchen (I think!). They are well made but the reality is that the tools are only useful in the greatest of "emergencies".

I have had the Forester for five years and all have had a fair bit of use.
Main blade really could do with a sharpen now, however - but am temped to get the one handed version with screw driver instead of cork screw. Have used the cork screw for digging stuff out etc, but screw driver would have been used more.
It seems a leatherman probably has a bit better metal for keeping an edge, but also more cash.

are these good for stabbing people ?

Very nice find. Thanks for posting. Voting hot .

the corkscrew is really handy for undoing too tight shoelaces or stubborn knots. don't discount it!! well actually you can discount it, cos this is hotukdeals!

Still got mine 30 years. Scissors and corkscrew knacked but still used for splinter removal lol

Great price for delivered but if you are near a screwfix store they sell them for £10.99

It really is a shame that GoOutdoors don't sell this model because it then would most likely be available for only £9 after their beat by 10% Price Promise, but unfortunately they only sell the Jelly and Silver handled versions.

brilliant deal, thank you! top pen knife, I lost mine a few months ago and couldn't find one for less than £20. glad i held out.

got it for £10.69 through flubit last time.

Great Xmas pressie!

Leathermans are also a lot heavier.

Not really bothered by the weight - have had a friend's leather man for a bit and one with a fair few more bits than my Forester (which I deliberately chose to have the minimum I needed pretty much as have had 'big' ones in the past.)

Reading up as I did after posting, it seems that while the Leatherman does keep the edge for longer, it's also harder to hone.

I had one bought for me in 1980 (different model - cost £22.00) and still have it after years of abuse. It's lost one of the red side plates and I broke the saw blade opening coconut shells in Barbados with it, but other than that its still very functional. Just hope they are of the same standard of workmanship that they were over 30 years ago. heat added.

The one I got five years ago has seen quite a lot of abuse and is still going fine.
Blade is VERY blunt now*, but the blade has been used a lot including for stuff like cutting washing line wire, which it's not ideal for, certainly. Everything else is good, though could use a lube.

*To the point I was some cutting some cheese while driving, though it felt a bit sharp then realised it was upside down, but without any injury to me.

I 'cut the cheese' in the car all the time.
