    Strag! :p (non-hitchhiker)

    I lost count how many times I read this "trilogy" of 5 books. I did see the leatherbound 5 book edition for sale in a shop today for $21...but I already have it :D
    Also, I fell outta bed reading that at night as a youth. It totally cracks me up :)

    I have picked these books up numerous times in the bookstore, but have yet taken the plunge! I am in between books at the moment, so perhaps the time is now! :)

    I got it on the big auction site from paracordist. He ships from Russia but it still came pretty quick and there's a thread already about making a paracord voodoo doll which was pretty simple.

    Weird, it only took me 2 weeks. Eh I guess the post office can be hit or miss sometimes.

    In fact I was choosing between these two. My hands are rather large, so 566 was really too small for me tastes. Also wanted to try S35VN as Elmax is known from 560BW, that I own. And the last thing - 566 is assisted, 550 manual. Preference again.
    I guess these two are great knives, one cannot go wrong picking any of it. Good luck and you might find yourself owning both of them one day :)

    Yeah weight is my only concern. I think the little roller wheel is a cool idea. But for the price nothing compares for the looks! If it's heavy I will attach a split ring to my belt because my belt has 2 rows of holes and then attach the parabiner to the split ring .

    I do have smaller hands so perhaps I should stick with the 0556, as my first ZT! Then if I like it, I will see if I start drinking the ZT Coolaid just like the Spyderco coolaid!! HA!

    One of these. I was hoping for an open top Skinth but they are no longer listed on the site.
