    This is my first attempt at making a homemade knife of any type. I started with a circular saw blade, ruler, french curve and a sharpie. Here are some pics of what I have so far. As you will see I have wrapped the handle with 550 cord.

    Any vet will tell's the NCO's/Non-comms that are the backbone of the service.....but at least in the Army it was 550 (para) cord and 100mph (duct) tape that helped us hold it together:D: I don't know if it warrants it's own section....but maybe a future sticky :).....but I wanted to...

    Well folks, I've done a bit more work on my favorite rifle. I was having sling issues. SERIOUS sling issues. The default position for the forward sling swivel is on top of the weapon. This is to facilitate slinging the weapon parallel to the ground under one's arm and being able to quickly...

    I have a package of 550 paracord, never been opened, at least 20 yrs old that has been kept in a dry sack with some other stuff. Forgot I had it, the climbing gear (rope, web seat, misc. items) is marginal. I'll toss the regular rope (don't trust it from sitting so long), the web seat seems...

    Para-cord is touted as having inumerable uses. People are always keeping extra in or on their gear. Have you ever been in a situation where that extra stash of 550 really pulled your tit out of the wringer? Tell us about it!

    Not a bad deal at $34-36 per USGI Roll and is there any such thing as too much 550 cord?:D: Gladding is an approved vendor of the United States Department of Defense, passing all of the government's quality control, first-article inspection requirements. Gladding earned its reputation of...

    I am sure this has been posted before but since I am new to the forum I thought I would get started here. Anytime I am out in the bush I always carry 10 things with me, usually in a small shoulder back or my backpack depending on the situation. The idea is that I could survive as long as need...

    I finally got around to making my first paracord sling. I may have screwed up a little but it was my first attempt. Now I need to go sling some snowballs.
