Reasonable Tool
06-Sep-2014
By
, Bristol
"I bought this tool despite reading the other poor reviews. Its a little unhelpful when a product has older negative reviews and no response from Screwfix or the manufacturer and one is left not sure if its worth buying or not. Anyway, I bought this Feather Edge and its fine for DIY and light Trade Use. It was straight and did the job of ruling off the plastering I was doing no problem."

Is it made of wood?
22-Nov-2012
By
, Slough
"After spending a lot of money at Screwfix over the last year, I felt the time has come to start reviewing some of my purchases.
This has to be the worst product I have come across. Its bowed so badly you could make a better one from wood. Its not just on the flat edge but the thin feather edge and along its strongest plane. Like a BOOMERANG!
Imagine placing the feather edge against a flat surface and then looking down from above. The gap in the middle is 3-4 mm. Yes you can push it really hard to try and make contact across the full length but this isn't how this tool is intended to be used. Also it requires a lot of pushing to get it even remotely flat.
Its a huge waste of time having to go back and return the item when it could be made correctly in the first place."

Do Not Buy
10-Apr-2010
By
, Cornwall
"This is the worst straight edge I have ever come across. Why? - Its bent the last 500mm simply curves off, not bent on the flat surface like if it was bent in transit but on the feather edge its self, maybe its a one off but I am loosing faith with forge steel as I have bought a good few items based on my first experience with them but im now realising its cheap junk and not for everyday trade use."
