    My most used tool besides my jig would be my pair of forceps.

    Thats ok for cutting paracord but how do you finish weaves like the the fish tail bracelet?

    Considering a single strand used, I would tie the end in a simple knot, cut, burn the ends and push them flat to make a rivet of sorts. That's how I finish all my projects.

    What I do with the end is pull the inners out a little, cut them off, so only the outer sheath is left on the end. Then I melt it so the rivet is as close to the color of the project as possible. If you melt it right, it won't char as much. :cheers2:
     
  7. The most used tool for us is a simple pair of very sharp high carbon scissors.. every project starts with a nice clean cut :)

    That's a cool idea for a field surgical kit case.

    My favorite paracord tool is the jig I made, Makes it so much easier to make them.
