    Welp that didn’t last long. I guess my fancy 550 cord knot tying needs some work. That didn’t hold up for one day wit me at work.

    1st try at this paracord stuff. Wanted to try a new way to hold my keys, we'll see how I like it.

    Been a few weeks with the snap shackle keychain and I like using it more and more as time goes on. I was uncertain how much I'd like using it for the first few days but now I really like how it dangles into the pocket.

    I tried a pocket dangler or two but I keep a knife clipped to the same pocket as I place the keys. So that was a no go for me.

    In any case, I recieved a couple 'stainless' 35mm shackles from ebay the other day as well as some type 1 paracord to try a much thinner/lighter version of my keychain. Versus the first larger and heavier type 3 cord with the rifle/paintball shackle. (I gave one of those to a friend and that it also keeps growing on more and more.)

    Note: different lengths are on purpose, to find the right length for my pockets.

    Here are three ending knots that I use to finish off my four stand projects. The same methods can be used for projects with more strands involved

    Still playing with keychains. I haven't moved up to lanyards, bracelets or leashes yet. I think I'll try a snake knot or maybe a 2 post spool weave.

    I should stop looking at @Stormdrane blog. Too many ideas.


    The new 50mm snap shackle, type 3 cord and clip.

    Made a few Key / Wallet retainers.

    Made a couple more but gave them away. I prefer the brass clips and like the additional brass beads on a couple of them.

    I added a handle wrap to a CRKT Woods Nobo Tomahawk that one of my sisters had given me this past Christmas, using leather and paracord. I've tied/untied a number of different variations since I received it, but still haven't decided on making any of them permanent, lol... :p

    I like the braided leather and i like how you wrapped it towards the bottom, looks like it would be a better grip and more comfortable than the braided
