And

Spurt out when you cut gently into (6) ?P???H would that be 'splash'. Thanks in advance

Hi again.

Are all the clues cryptic?

The second clue, if not cryptic ... upgush would fit.

yeah they are cryptic but the thing is if the answer is 'steady', that would give an 'a' for the other clue which i thought might be splash - ?p?a?h

Hi again.

I suppose upgush could work for the second clue even if it is cryptic ... 'u'/you + 'push'/cut with 'g'ently inside. It's a bit contrived though ...

splash fits those letters very well but I don't see the wordplay yet.

Think it is Splash - slash (cut) with p (gently)inside.
