    Thought of that myself. The arms need to be posable I think. They sit real fine. Took one to work to show the receptionist and the HR lady stole it. Our receptionist has bought a couple keychains from me so I figured she would like it.

    I used close to 10 feet of paracord adding this knot work(cobra stitch/Solomon bar/Portuguese sinnet/square knotting) to a 6 inch tall day planner. It's made similarly to a paracord bracelet, with the cord run around the spine/spiral binding a couple of times before doing the knot work and again at the end. I ran the cord thru the outer spirals as I knotted to keep it close/flat against the spine, but you can skip doing that if you want more of a handle/grip for the knotted section.

    Here's a couple paracord bracelets with type 1 paracord added. They aren't as bulky as they would be with a standard king cobra stitch made entirely of 550 cord. Still has between 15' and 20' of total cordage without being too bulky.

    Here's the Paracord Pirate for those who havn't seen 'em. Again, this is not my work, if you know who "invented" it please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.

    I think the rack-knot sinnet gives a better body but the cobra is easier for my 6 year old (and me).

    Thanks Alexipax. I agree ref the rack-knot vs the cobra. I'm going to make mine with the cobra, quicker mainly & can be tied any where.

    Here's a bow wrist sling in a round sinnet for the larger portion and a diamond braid for the sides.

    Ive made a few of those paracord-men. Wire works well, although a good trick I figured out was to bend the end of the wire so its not a sharp point, and to melt the inner strands together so one does not get shoved down into the strand.

    Ill post a couple pictures later.

    I used a single 26 foot strand of paracord to knot over the grab handles of my Spec-Ops Pack-Rat.

    Paracord sheath... It's a little rough, no belt clip or belt loops yet. Gutted paracord woven around paracord with the inner strands intact can make a serviceable sheath/pouch for a multitool, flashlight, knife, etc...

    A little reminder from the EDCF Guidelines:
