550 Bracelet
#31
[quote name='Stormdrane' post='51642' date='Oct 22 2005, 06:50 PM']I've gotten back into knots just this past year. I did quite a bit when I was in the Scouts 25 years ago but had forgotten what I'd learned. I put some pics of some of what I've made with paracord on a blog page I just set up. There are several books on knots available, just search ebay or Amazon and a few tutorials are also on the web if you look for them.

Thanks Stormdrane, I have your site in my favourites now.



Thanks again

Definitely like the watchband. Did you have trouble with it popping the pins out from the thickness of the 550?

I didn't have any trouble with the pins and paracord thickness on my watch(Timex), but since watches vary on the space between the watch and the pins, it might not work with some watches, so YMMV.

Oh my goodness! A kindred paracord braiding spirit! I must say, your style puts mine to shame...Your work is wonderful! <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Here's another variation to use for a paracord bracelet. 'Ashley's Book of Knots'(ABOK), calls this pattern the 'double tatted' and 'seesaw' knot. I believe I've also seen it called a zigzag knot. It's a simple pattern of half hitches with each side.

I used to make a couple of those bracelets and lanyards in the desert. I found it to be quite profitable and an excellent waste of time.

Here's my take on the "Sandbox Bracelet." A single 68 foot long strand of 550 cord.

Here's a 3 lead 4 bight turk's head I put on the pommel of my CS Trailmaster. You wouldn't believe what this simple mod did to improve the handling characteristics of this knife. It really socks it up tight in the fist when hammer gripped and gives you a nice ball to hang on to when backing off for back cuts, snap cuts, and chopping work.

[quote name='Stormdrane' post='150099' date='Aug 14 2007, 11:47 AM']Here's a couple of tutorials I made for making a paracord bracelet and watchband:

I made the paracord bracelet with the side release buckle a few days ago. Single piece, 10' long. I've been wearing it to work, everyone that sees it wants one.

Thanks Ranger.



Yeah, it's 550 cord but it's not gutted. It just looks like it is because the knot is pulled so tightly against the rubber grip. (S'cuse me, KRATON grip! <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> )



Because the knot is always held under tension by the compression of the rubber, it's remained tighter than Dick's hatband through a couple of years of good hard use.

Thats a great Idea on the Trailmaster.

Love all the paracord stuff You all are making.

Uhhhhhh....seriously, that Knife has never seen a tough wood knot, let alone a sharp snap cut (or a sharpening stone, for that matter).



Wear marks speak no lies...you are KILLING me, Ken.

Huh. It strikes me as a little strange that your first post to me (at least under this username and on this forum) is so combative. Without so much as a "How-do-ya-do?" you pretty much call me a liar and laugh in my face.



I wonder if that sort of behavior is accepted around here?

No, wear marks speak no lies but low res pics taken under artificial light often do.

These were taken in natural light today, (kinda gray and cloudy out) with flash.

Well I combined two threads on here recently and came up with quite a useable piece of survival gear.



A few weeks ago someone mentioned in a post about getting "free items" and so I did just that. There are some plastic clasps that a website sells, one with a whistle. I got a few of them from the site in a very timely manner. Then I saw this thread resurrected and thought that I would try a #550 bracelet with the new clasps.



The bracelet is awesome (Thanks Storm) and my wife liked it so much that we now have a matching pair! Not only a kewl bracelet that will always guarantee me 10 feet of paracord, but I also have a whistle that is attached! Very kewl indeed. Thanks to two great posts, I have one new product to take with me into the bush!



(Sorry, I am having trouble getting onto the website, so I can't do any pictures right now. But if it clears up in the near future I will try to include a picture or two.)
