Leatherman Skeletool with FREE Stainless Water Bottle at a Great Price Too!

This is my favourite multi-tool - and I've tried quite a few! The handy karabiner clip and its low weight are the real winning features for me. It is still a full-size Leatherman multi-tool featuring a stainless steel straight and serrated blade [ideal for cutting through rope], good pliers which are nimble enough for fiddly work yet tough enough for the bigger jobs, a bit driver and the karabiner/bottle opener - and that’s it. Only the most necessary multi-tool features, because sometimes that...

Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Don't Get Cold.......

.....and neither will you! Our Arthur Beale Beerenberg Oiled Wool Pullovers have just arrived in pure Welsh Mountain Sheep Wool. The sheep are called black but their wool is actually a rich dark brown colour. There is no dye or bleach involved, just a gentle wash to retain the natural lanolin so they smell gorgeous. These British Made pullovers are built to last with reinforced shoulder seems and thumbholes. They rarely need to be cleaned but when they are washed they will not shed any of the...

Good Little Ship - A Talk by Peter Willis You've missed it!

Arthur Ransome’s "We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea" was inspired by his boat the "Nancy Blackett" which appears in the book as the Goblin.
