    Spyderco Bushcraft

    I have one of the BCUK knives with the spalted scales. Original sheath was horrible but mine came with a superb sheath made by someone on here (black sheep?). Scales are cracked but haven't come off yet. Beautiful tool.

    DIY (primitive) drybags?!

    Waxed/oiled cotton should be fairly waterproof. Otherwise, I suppose something like an animal bladder or stomach would serve a purpose.

    Ramsoms are up

    I transplanted several clumps but none of them survived past the first year. If I can get hold of any more I'll try again

    Perhaps one should have something ready to offer before accepting something? Been 2 weeks now without an offer

    Help with fruit leather

    The stuff that dried out doesn't have much taste and it's still a bit soft. Looks like beef jerky - perhaps I should market it as a vegan alternative!

    Help with fruit leather

    Guess what this is?

    We've made the curd now. My wife doesn't think it tastes good but I disagree. Will be interesting to see how it tastes when cold and set, though. The medlar cheese didn't set so I'm going to remelt it and give it a bit more heat

    Yes, of course, sorry for the delay. PM me your address and I'll get it sent off

    Guess what this is?

    Yes, it sets pretty firm. From what I know, my medlar tree is grafted on a quince rootstock so they must be closely related. The medlar cheese didn't set so going to have to tip it back into a pot and boil it again. The jelly set beautifully in the jar - don't know if it would be firm enough to...

    Ooh... very close with quince. I'll put you out of your misery - it's the leftover pulp from our medlars, being made into medlar cheese. Jelly already bottled:
