Yes good family indeed. They've all chipped in for my big 50...
Hmm, Notch Li has arrived and HMRC doesn't seem to want me to pay any dues for that either which is very kind of them.
despite it being clearly labeled on the customs declaration.
I can only presume someone up there is smiling on me today
Unless there is a new system of retrospective charging that I'm not aware of, and based on the Buying from the EU thread, I assume that there is not.
However as an honest citizen, I feel compelled to make HMRC aware of their omission.
So in the spirit of the letter they recently sent me demanding I immediately pay £10.44 in underpaid NIC for the 3 days I was out if work in 2013.
I shall wait 7 years just to make sure an invoice does not turn up first, then I shall write to them informing them that some tax may be due on something, somewhere, sometime ago and hope that it jogs their memories.
I have added a date to my diary for 2028.
Untrakt long sleeve merino base and Supernatural merino tights from Sportpursuit - some very good discounts on base layers at the moment
But what do you think of your notch?
haven't even looked, forgot I had it, lol.
Still getting over the trauma after weighing it to discover it's 604g. A whole 1g over the stated weight
Followed by the euphoria of finding a 5g instructions leaflet in the bag.
My only comment so far is I'm surprised how bulky it is. At least the very very seethrough material is not a surprise.
I will pitch it at the weekend. I don't have enough grass area in my garden or enough daylight to pop to the park.
Well we’re not going anywhere soon..
Sproingy running shoes...
Killing my ankles and knees just looking at that picture
We can't all be real flat-footed men
Make em' black and you are the Batman.
Kinda happy man today
Didn't get any straps as it's wide enough (56") as a side sleeper to tuck under & wrap round, but also comes as standard (with all their quilts now) their edge tension control. Which uses 2 shock cords to gather the outer edge of the quilt,
making a neck baffle with one & gathering the 2 sides in under you with the other (this worked nicely with the UL summer as a side sleeper).
I say kinda cause I was going to go for a camp within my 5km when it came but have just learned the gaurds can now give on the spot fines if you're in breach of restrictions & I don't think we are allowed out without valid reason, will testing new gear be valid enough?
On a happier note, apparently with brexit our postpeople don't collect in cash what vat, duty etc.. is due at the door anymore & this is all handled in advance of me getting the goods, first am hearing of it.
Just doing your job as a freelance gear reviewer. A man has to be able to earn his living.
42g... yes Opinels are lighter and cheaper..but not orange...
Don't get caught on Eurostar.
That looks awesome. Amazing weight for the fill too.
A bit heavier
But has some orange in it.
Mine is, or should I say was until the lovely people at Geneva airport confiscated it
Is it nice? Not too much blade wobble?
I had an email the other day saying it had come back into stock after a long wait.
I tend to put a slight bevel on the flat side of the serrated blades and also thin down the serrated side, helps it slice straight down without wandering on hard veg etc. *I may be being a bit obsessive here
Looks superb for baguette making
Well you did chop for a living I believe...but yes, obsessive
It locks and is wobble free.
It's for Dr Deliciosa really I barely use a knife....which is why I have several...
I'm always looking for a better quality picnic experience @edh
Marginal gains and all that.
Just for those lightweight ultra-glamping deluxe moments when a beachfront risotto is called for.
Or more likely, whenever I visit my mother and get roped into cooking only to find I have to club the veg apart using her blunt knife collection.
For those visits I tend to take a 'Boker magnum cuisine iii' folding santouku but the victorinox is much lighter.
167g! I could take an extra jacket for that
You should see the bread knife version
Jokes aside, I have even used to Boker to cater for a 100 head function before now. It's a very handy tool and you never know what you will be roped into when passing the village hall.
