Ebay - Two piece Spoon carving kit £6.80 including postage

Listing says item posting from Dunstable, yet lists seller as Spanish... anyhow
I don't need a spoon knife personally but its gotta be worth a punt for somebody at that price.
i too found it sold out, but these combo's can be bought from the likes of Ali Express for about the same cost (the post above prompted me to look!). I also spotted spoon knives on there for under £3 inc postage - it would be interesting to see what quality they are!

Ebay auction - camping bundle: solo pot, new bushbox style stove, grill rack , mugs plastic x2
currently sitting at £10 + 3.50 postage with 4 days on the clock

Getting a mention because the China overland parcel service seems to have backed up something chronic. I 've got packages stuck between Poland & France that are now overdue by a month. So local clearouts like this are worth a second look.

Samurai pruning saw

just purchased one of these to try out, can't afford a silky but needed a better and longer saw, trawling the arbor shops and this came up, about half the price of anywhere else online too. Postage was £3.00, reviews say they are very good. I'll put a review up when it arrives.

Wurkkos FC11 flashlight, complete with 18650 (decent one too) & charge cable is 20% off (£20) for next several hours.
Kind of the default recommendation for a budget light these days.

Wurkkos lights are made by Sofirn.

I suspect that is this with a slight change in body design. I had a code for these a while back and bought 7 of them at a good discount. They’re excellent, ridiculously throwy for the size of the head.

Yeah, few differences, magnetic base, and type C charging port, and change of LED FC11 using a Samsung LH351D 5000k 90CRI compared to the SST20 6500K 70CRI.
That actually makes a lot of difference, I’m fed up with type B charging, too fragile and picky, especially in the dark. 5000k is about right too, the Sofirn is a cool white, hence the noticeable throw probably.

Spotted these on Varustelekas site varusteleka.com/en/product/interestingly-sharp-terava-jaakaripuukko-b-quality/65327 Super cheap but might need a little work.
