Good straight edge but not perfect

There have been a number of reviews stating various issues with this straight edge but my experience with this purchase is that the one I got was ok when checked against a know good straight edge with no gaps either on the wide edge or the bevel edge. This not to say there are not issues but they are relatively minor and do not prevent this tool doing its job.
Issues
For me the bevel is too sharp and could be easily damaged, as this is a precision tool anyway you need to treat as such.
Its far too shiny, what I initially thought were gaps along the edge of the bevel turned out to be reflections of the workshop lights.
The ends of the bevel are unfinished and very rough, these could have been easily tidied up without affecting the cost.

Not immediately useful

Despite what other reviewers have said, I went ahead and ordered the short one. Predictably it was not straight. It was bowed and daylight was shining brightly under the middle section. However, because the bevelled edge is so fine it took about 15 minutes with a diamond sharpening plate to produce dead straight. I would have done the same to a straight edge costing 5 times as much, so for me it is great. You can use a file stroked carefully along the length too, but it will take longer with more iterations. I think that people who buy straight edges probably have files so if you are prepared to do a bit of work, and have a decent reference surface, I'd recommend these.

The un-straight straightedge

Delivered in a cardboard tube alone and in its faux leather case, something looked wrong immediately. The overall surface ground finish looked 'whiteIsh' in parts and would not come off with degreaser.

Looking carefully it was also obvious the beveled edge was not straight, confirmed very easily with a Veritas straightedge. About 40 mm plus at one end had been over ground causing it to curve slightly, the bevel edge also thinned almost to a knife edge.

For the money, not bad but I need a good straight ! edge for accurate cutting so on its way back to Axminster via their ever helpful Customer Services.

No longer straight

After about a year of extremely careful use and storage (with not a ding or scratch in sight) I am convinced the edge is no longer straight. Meaured against float glass (which I use for flattening) and many other things that used to be straight, I am seeing significant gaps along the lenght. It is hard to be absolutely sure, without another straight edge to compare, but I no longer trust this tool.

almost perfect

A nice hefty piece of kit. I have checked the straightness on my surface plate and I have no complaints for the price. My only gripe is the beveled edge is very thin and therefore vunerable to knocks and dings (2 already). A thicker edge or harder steel may be a solution. Still, unbeatable value nevertheless.
