Bahco - stainless steel, double-sided, magnetic end (useful when measuring from a steel post or metal laths), marked in Impereial and metric. Bit of an acquired taste and the stand-out isn't as good as a Stanley Fat Max although unlike the Fat Max the Bahco will fit in my pockets. Last one I bought was about £16 or £17
