It’s pretty hard to say, Korneel. I have no experience with Rutlands. The vise looks good in the picture, but you never know. If this is a first bench and you just need something to get started, then maybe it’s a good way to go. But if you want something more heavy-duty that will last many years, who knows.
Maybe you could check their return policy. If you get the vise and can get a feel for it without dirtying it up to bad, then you would have the option of returning it if you don’t like it.
If you’re going to be doing a lot of work with it, you really need a stout vise.

Shell out for something with a quick release, it’s usually only 10-20% more expensive, and it’ll quickly pay for itself over the life of the vise. It’s the single most important feature when considering which vise to buy.
I have to say, here in Australia I have the same problem. People are always recommending old Dawn vices, but they are impossible to find. Don’t be discouraged, I good quality new vice will work just as well, and won’t require nearly as much restoration work. Just don’t buy the cheapest one you can find, in my experience, you’ll certainly regret it.
