    Sadly not. The weather has been cool the last couple weeks, so have been outside. Its going to be in the 40's this weekend, so I will be huggin the AC for sure! Seems like a good time to catch up on some paracord projects.
    Thanks for the motivation though Jarhead, I need it from time to time!

    That made absolutely no sense...

    Until I saw that you were from Canada and 40 meant Celsius... :rofl:

    Ha ha, if only we could all be the same and use the same unit of measurments.....it would make things so much simpler.

    Stubborn Americans won't switch to metric...

    I think we have even passed laws that mandated we do so...

    Which get ignored.

    FWIW: I'm one who thinks the metric system is great!

    I'm an american and I can't stand our measurement system. Why not be the same as everyone else and use a more logical system? Ugh. I want to try those zipper pulls, but how did you do them with two tag ends of cord hanging and such small lengths? Or did you cut them after?

    Ha ha at least American's are stubborn enough to just use one system.

    Here in the UK we like to use a bit of both systems, and often use them together at the same time!
    Weather forecasts for example still give temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius.

    You should hear the noise that we make when they try to stop us buying pints of beer and have half litres instead!

    I can do the knots, but how did you do it with both tag end together? I must be lost. :p

    After threading through the zipper, tie the overhand on one end...

    Before tightening the coils, thread the other end through them.

    Then work the coils as tightly as possible and pull the non knotted end to the desired length.

    I'll do a step by step with photos Monday if that helps.

    That's cool. I was messing with it earlier and figured that might have been what you did.

    So...

    If the Hinderer XM18 is one of my dream knives...

    and the ZT0560 is the poor man's XM...

    and I just bought a Kershaw Thermite...

    What does that make me???

    Other than the proud owner of a Hinderer product of some sort... :D

    I guess...

    I'd rather be described as frivolous, but my wife and kids would probably disagree!

    It's funny too because I was reminded of the Thermite because of TH's thread about honest reviews and purple unicorns...

    Called up the LGS and they had 5 in stock and they were 20% off until Christmas!

    Win win... got it for $32 and change.
