Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

What's the deal with glow in the dark paracord? I'm all about camo. But after watching that episode of "Alone" where the guy loses his ferro rod. And has to be evacuated because of it.

It's a spool knit lanyard, 2 peg version. I have a tutorial. ;)

Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

Ma & Pa gave me an iProtec 1400 zoomable LED flashlight for my birthday, and I used a remnant strand of gutted paracord to tie a Turk's head knot around the grip with a simple wrist loop lanyard to finish. :)

Stormdrane, what are you using as a needle to thread the paracord? I often use Perma-Lok lacing needles, different sizes depending on the cord. There are many folks/vendors that also make lacing needles in stainless steel/aluminum that also work well, or you can make your own improvised versions too.

Re: Fun with Paracord! (or) Misadventures with Paracord!

Oooh, I like the looks of that moku hitching. I'll have to give it a go and see how it looks on the bar. Added some Moku hitching to one of my dad's walking canes a few years back, and you can see from the couple of pics in my blog post that it does fine working with angles, so should go nicely on ...
