Ive had my wave replaced three times.
Id be ****ed if it broke so easily without the warrenty, so very gald it does have one.
Although they have changed the design slightly, and the newer version isnt as good
I first got it at xmas 2000. It was replaced august 2001, then again at august 2002. I got a newer model the last time it was changed.
First time round it was my fault. I tried to cut the cable from a door lock and the cutter on the pliers busted.
Second time, most of the screwdriver flat blades had twisted. I got the screw out with a 20pence driver in the end. Not a good sign...
The one I have now is showing signs of surface rust (stainless?) but has never been wet. The driver blades are OK, but I dont use it as much as I used to. The sharp knife isnt, blunts far too easily, and the blots (security ) are too tight. If you sharpen the blade, it's just going to disappear too early. Is that covered by the warrenty?
