    Thanks,

    It's a Bark River, Bravo Necker. It's my current favorite blade. light weight and holds a razor sharp edge. You can pick one up in the color of your choice at our very own J.S. Burly's and support the forum at the same time.

    An adjustable paracord watchband, made by weaving gutted paracord and using a buckle off an old watchband. There's still room for tweaking and improvement, but it still works...

    It can also be worn without a watch as an adjustable paracord bracelet...

    Nice job Stormdrane! I tried making a strap like that with some 2mm dacron line but it failed miserably. Makes me want to retry it with some paracord!!!

    Using gutted paracord kept it thin enough for the buckle/pin to work through the woven band, where anything thicker hasn't worked for me.

    Here's a half hitched aluminum water bottle sleeve, tied the same way I did the paracord pouch/can koozie, but spaced the hitches further apart. I used about 30 feet of paracord to cover the 750ml bottle.

    Here's a link showing how to do half hitching/needle hitching over a bottle. I add a separate cord/cord lock at the start to make it removable from the bottle.
