    Very nice. What size buckle did you use? I wear a all black king cobra bracelet made with a metal O shackle that I made over three years ago. It's very EDC bracelet.

    Yes it is a fun hobby. It's fun and relaxing to me also.

    The shackle in the pic I got from a local hardware store because at the time people werent selling them online like they are now.

    Looks great.

    Did you make it out of a single strand?

    I've made a bunch of king cobras. I usually don't wear them as an EDC as I find them too thick.

    Here's one of my favorites. I like the way the orange shines through the ACU.

    I should probably make another one of these as this was one of my first ties and I've learned so much since I did this one.

    I like that color choice but I couldn't wear that everyday seeing as I don't wear orange. But for hiking/camping that would make a nice choice.

    My Pleasure.

    I wear a lot of orange... it's my favorite color. It actually looks less orange when worn than in the picture. I looks more gray.

    The clasp on this one was from Creative Design Works http://cdwplus.com/
