Re: Soft Shackles - Make Your Own

Anyone looking to make their own... or do anything with Dyneema rope I recommend these

https://www.amazon.com/Clauss-18087-...cians+scissors

(mine are a different make in the UK but I think identical)

Dyneema is horrible stuff to cut. It blunts a knife in one pass! These electrician's scissors are fantastic they have very fine serrated blades and are the only thing I've found that will continue to cut Dyneema time after time.
