I've got a 25% off code on my account for full price items if that's any good?

I'm looking for a good chefs knife or set of knives for my old man's xmas gift. I'd budget about £60 for these so not after something that could cut through granite (unless they come in budget).

Cheers

60 quid for a set is going to be diffcult.
If you only get one get a standard chefs knife, it will get most use.
I'd recommend Wüsthof or Shun, Sabatier is ok as a second/third choice.

Just one is really all I'm after Nick rather than a rubbish set. I can up the budget if need be but didn't want everybody suggesting I just buy the Porsche of the knife world.

The two I suggested are more Bentleys of the knife world, a Sebatier chefs knife (not a HUGE one) will be most use.

Thats the problem with Sabatier, they do wear quite quickly, and I found they needed a lot of sharpening.

Can anyone recommend some books on screenwriting for people that aren't the biggest readers? Documentaries would work as well.

I get the pish too. O2 don't block number, the only solution people seem to offer on their forums etc is to change your number. Bit of a joke really.

Sign up on there. I did about about 5 months ago and there's been a noticeable difference. At it's worst was getting anywhere between 1-5 spam calls a day on my mobile. Probably get 1-2 a week now.
