Paracord Projects | Paracord Projects Instructions, Videos, Reviews, Paracord Lanyard and Supplies Ultimate Survival Band Blank - 9 Inch This band is made with 15’ of black 550 paracord, the clasp toggle is made of flint, the tag is stainless steel and is attached with jute twine. To use the band you would first remove the jute string and stainless steel tag (striker), take the jute twine and fluff in to a birds nest, take the flint (clasp) in one hand and the striker in the other, scrape the striker against the flint while resting in the jute twine, you will create a spark that will light the jute. Then add twigs to get the fire going, eventually wood. You can also use the back of a knife to strike against the flint if you have other means of tinder to start the fire without breaking down the band. Recharging the band, take any crochet needle with eye hole, then lace back in to band with the striker for the next time. This band comes with 2 fishing hooks, 3 weights and 20 feet of braided fishing line. Blank - no engraving SHIPPING TIMES: Most, but not all orders leave our warehouse within 1-7 business days.

Adding Paracord to Water Bottles and another Paracord Can Koozie... Here are a couple of examples of adding paracord to water bottles. A 25 foot length was used for the one in a 'whipping' pattern on the aluminum water bottle. And a 40 foot length was used in a woven pattern on the white stainless steel water bottle. Both started off with coiling the cord around the bottles, with the starting end just held in place with a rubber band and later tucked to finish. The 'whipping'(snaking) version, an example is seen in Geoffrey Budworth's 'The Complete Book of Knots', is easily zigzagged and looped around a couple of coils on each end of the paracord coiled wraps, and tucked to finish. The woven version resembles 'grafting' type knot work, as seen in Stuart Grainger's 'Creative Ropecraft', but is instead a single length of cord. I used a Perma-Lok Jumbo Lacing Needle to feed the paracord over/under as I worked, as well as a pair of hemostats/forceps. Here's a woven paracord can koozie, done with a 25 foot length of cord.

News - #BBCtrending: 14 year-old's clever poem knocks Twitter backwards 27 February 2014Last updated at 15:03 ET By BBC Trending What's popular and why A poem written by a teenager has been retweeted 120,000 times. When Derek Nichols tweeted a picture of a poem written by his little brother Jordan, he was hoping to bring it to a wider audience, but was not expecting it to go viral.
