A two-strand wall knot sinnet with a couple of gaucho knots in moss color paracord, shown attached to my binoculars. Just over 68 feet was used of a the 70 foot long strand that I started with, for a finished 50" length with the 12mm split rings on the ends. :)

A friend gifted me an Old Hickory knife with a kydex sheath that he made for it, and I added a paracord wrap to the sheath.

A simple wrist loop lanyard added to a flashlight for this Labor Day's edc pocket duty, tied with #325 paracord attached to the pocket clip since the light itself doesn't have a lanyard hole, although I've also carried it without the pocket clip and tied a lanyard around one of the flashlight body grooves as an alternative as well... :clownshoes:

How are you finishing that off? Looks like an awful big ugly mess.

I would recommend either just cutting the ends to within 1/4" of the cobra part of the knot, and then melting them into 'stoppers', or leaving them maybe 3/8" or 1/2" long and tying/lashing them to the inner strands of the cobra, right next to the buckle, with some whipping twine or the like.

If you have any whipping twine, thats what I'd do, because you can have 'normal' ends, and all you have to do is cut off the twine with a knife and then you can un-tie the bracelet easy.


I just set it up to be torn down because I knew it was to big so just thought I would show the first try.


I tend to gauge 1foot = 1inch braided.

Am sure you paracord aficionados all know this but just this week 'I" learned how to make a fishing basket from the inner cords in a pinch. Now I 'have' heard of numerous other uses for those thread of course. The fishing basket was new to me though.

Yep, those Sam Walton customs are a good value for what they cost. I had bought a couple last month, one for Pa and one for me. I want to pick up a few more to stash in the vehicle glove boxes, toolbox, kitchen gadget drawer, and bug~out~bags. :mrgreen:

Question: I've tied a few long turks heads in leather on my walking stick, but was never happy with how the ends layed down. They tended to curl and bunch up. What is your preferred method of finishing one off?

I usually run the start and end strands up under then out of the knot before final tightening up to finish then trim and tuck, but that can vary depending on the knot, the cord, and where it's applied. I've also used a bit of strategic needle and thread or brush on super/krazy glue to secure ends as well. ;)

Checkered pineapple knots on a lighter, tied with electric blue Type I/#95 paracord and white 2mm mini blind string. I followed the diagrams from Tom Hall's book, "Introduction to Turk's Head Knots" to tie the knot around the cap, then tied a longer four bight TH for the base knot on the lighter body using the same pattern. :D

Out of the ordinary for this thread, looking for a recommendation: I want to put a wrap on my bicycle handlebars, any suggestions?

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 handlebars. ;)

Wow. Just found your blog again: http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/2010/04/moku-hitching.html

Now, I have found the use of knots to be essential in some of the things I do but you are an artist.
Rigged this up for your enjoyment.
