    Thanks both for the info. I can see from the picture above, it is definitely very thin.

    I would do it one day, Huw. This new year break I should have some extra free time from usual work to do something fun.

    AFAIK its mostly a utility knife that you can always keep on you, around your new for easy access. Opening boxes/packets and the like.
