    Hi all, Though this isn't really a review as I haven't had it long enough, I'd just like to present a small, lightweight gas stove which could find a place in your emergency kit, climbing/mountaineering kit or brew pack. Whilst I love to make a fire as much as most others on this site, often...

    Cast Iron Kadai/Kahri

    Picked up in local KRK asian store on Woodlands Rd, Glasgow. Cast iron kadai/kahri about size of 1/2 a football. Season as normal. Excellent for curries but it's pretty robust and would be equally at home on an open fire. It's not thin like a wok and is reassuringly heavy! Cost about £5...

    Muurikka-style Pans

    Hi all, Not sure if this is best place for thread but it is cooking-related. Many of you will have heard of/seen/own a Muurikka pan (I have a nice Leisku - http://www.muurikka.co.uk/Camping.html) but they are eye-wateringly expensive for what they are. I think I may have found a more...

    Although I'm a qualified climber-arborist, I don't so this for a living but just occasional jobs for friends & family. Dismantled small-ish tree for friend's nan yesterday in the rain! Great fun, hard work, very satisfying. Apart from having to break branches down by hand afterwards for 2.5...
