Hey, what's new with you? Tell us about yourself.
Aww no, not another ruddy Scot!


Seriously you'll be fine buying the pumpkin tools from Ryans shop, it's only ebay there is a knife ban on!

..& if in doubt get Ryan to put it down as a crafting / woodworking tool, that is in essence what it is, you will e amazed by its cutting ability, & incredibly durable, ..get 2 & another pack of saws.
you won't regret it, & a pumpkin gutter is simply stupendous at getting on with the job.

Yeah the ones in the supermarkets aren't that great at all, I just seen the ones in Morrisons and Tesco last year and they were tiny, I don't know if you can tell the size of the pumpkins in this picture, the back three but they were massive! it was my brothers first time growing them aswell, I especially likes the tall ones, they were great to carve with.

I'm not quite as crazy as some of the other minions on here :wink:
Between my wife and I, we probably do 6 pumpkins or so.

Nice job for a first time grower. Mine are to damned small the four of 'em. Two fit Undead Teds hands, the other two are useless, unless you carve three triangles and a crooked ass mouth :x

If you just order one set and a gutter you should be OK with customs charge wise. There is no problem with them being blades.

I know I am going to regret this but I will suggest that you and Edinburghzombie visit Cairnie Fruit farm near Cupar in Fife for your pumpkins. John Laird has had a great patch there for a few years now. Not as cheap as supermarket ones but WAY bigger. Just leave some good ones for me please :wink:

Welcome tae the forums quixotic, Great to have another Scot on the boards (I'm Fife!) :D
Im sure you'll have a blast here. Like Matspud said, Cairnie Fruit Farms is a great place for massive kins. She told me about it last year and now i wouldn't get mine anywhere else.
Look forward to seeing more of your work. :)
