It is strongly made and simple to use with my biggest challenge being keeping the tension right in thinner materials. Practice makes perfect and I did find that it is worth marking out your stitch positions first to produce better looking results - well worth the extra few seconds this takes.
This joins a small but select array of tools I would immediately replace if lost which, as I've mentioned elsewhere, seems to be the best way of finding something you've mislaid anyway
The specified prewaxed thread is costly and doesn't match most of the items it will probably be used with so I experimented with alternatives from the sort of linen needle-and-thread available from most outlets to dental floss (yes, you read it right - dental floss is unbelievably strong, cheap and available almost everywhere). Given some way of holding the work so far the speedy sticher has dealt with everything I've thrown at it from belts and straps to messenger bags and old boots.
In the absence of a friendly traditional cobbler with a can-do attitude (the last one I found was down a side-street in Italy) this is the kind of item that earns it's keep in the tool box, boot or rucksack.
It's the sort of tool I wish I had had many years ago, and will undoubtedly find many more uses for in future.
