Topic - Less common knots

needvert on 22 Apr 2014
Two bends have been on my mind lately:

The DT-FK, a variation on tying a double overhand, having an advantage of sliding over an edge nicely like an EDK:

And the zeppelin bend:

There's somewhat of a discussion here were at least one person considers it 'suitable for life' - http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=1902.45 (I suspect the Roo in the thread is the same as the Zeppelin.html page author)
It looks pretty easy to untie too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Givv9cBB_Hw

The DT-FK seems secure (no matter how badly I try to tie it) enough I'd be happy enough to rap on it. The zeppelin I'm less convinced on (probably due to one of its big 'positive' characteristics - being easy to untie) though can't find any damning opinions of it.
