Has anyone used Urth photographic accessories, particularly their lens mount adapters? A quick search of ePHOTOzine comes up with one member using their ND filters, but not a lot else.

I've used a few to protect front element of lens and have a ND64 one. Basically happy with them, but no scientific testing to compare with top notch Hoya or other brands. No experience of lens mount adapters - sorry.

I went ahead and bought an Urth lens adapter to allow me to use Pentax K lenses on a Nikon Z mount camera. I'm pleased that I did. It seems well made and does the job. It has no electrical contacts and so you need to use a lens with an aperture ring to manually set the aperture or, I guess, operate with the lens wide open. I particularly wanted to use my old manual extension tubes; they work fine. The following was taken with a Nikon Z6ii, a SMC Pentax-A 50mm f/2 lens and total of 44mm extension tubes. Not a great picture, but a start!

A good start as you say!
