Re: Tin opener

The only can we've had fail in storage was a ring-pull (cat food in this case), it took hours (spread over a couple of days) to find it by smell alone.... We first thought one of the Mogs had bought something half dead in and let it loose. The stink was unreal (insert "Puking" emoticon here).

Re: Brexit in October?

The really annoying part is if they'd of got on with it we'd be out the other side and Know what needs doing to sort any problems.
As it is, everyone is still guessing.

Re: BOB Multi Tool

I got a SOG powerlock and removed the knife-blade. I love the compound pliers and that all the tools lock. Mine is one of the ones with the V-tool so I can still use it to cut cord and stuff like seatbelt webbing without having an actual knife on it (I carry a lock knife for work, a fixed blade if I...

Hiya Panther, good to hear you're doing OK

As for chocolate, I believe it evaporates as there never seems to be any in the house even though I bought some just the other day :oops:

Re: Question Which UK Cheese looking at waxed?

The wax (like the thick rind on some cheeses) acts as a protective layer to slow drying and helps to keep nasties from spoiling the cheese. Some supermarket waxed cheeses aren't designed for long term storage (in fact, if you believe the BBE dates some supermarket cheeses have spoilt before they bec...

Re: Knife Sharpener

I'm a self confessed blade addict. I use diamond 'stones' in a range of grits, however I don't tend to bother going finer then 600 even on my straight-razors (although I do strop those heavily) . Mostly because I believe that an edge should last longer then the time it takes to create and seeing as ...

Re: Fire lighting.

I like Zippo lighters, I really do. Trouble is, they have to be ‘managed’ all the time, ‘ cos all of a sudden the fuel has dried up ( about 5 days). That’s why I like the ‘10 for a pound ‘ disposable jobs. I am using throwaways I bought 11 years ago. The small round Clippers are good too, last for ...
