That was exactly the intention! The video I learned it from used gutted 550 cord for the stitching, but I thought that looked a little off. So instead I tried it with 325 cord and it worked perfect.

My first attempt at a Piranha/SharkTooth... The video I used to make it showed using just two strands in the center, but I wanted to try to make it thicker. So I used four strands in the core, and tried to keep the two strands of each color stacked on top of each other instead of side by side. I got my goal of added thickness, but that made the bracelet fit just a tad tighter than I wanted when the finished bracelet was on the wrist. My next one I will try doing with just the two strands in the core and see which I prefer. I can always add .25-.5" to the length to compensate for the added thickness if I still want it thicker. I think in general this is going to be a weave I enjoy producing. I love the look of it for making something in team colors. This one was made in honor of the Pacers' win last night against the Wizards. :) ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1399729929.385638.jpg ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1399729965.462171.jpg

Nice work. The last bracelet is my favorite.

Shark jawbone quickly became my favorite weave once I mastered making it with three colors. For some weird reason I like making stuff with three colors (one used for a good color pop or standout. I use three nongutted strands per side because I like a heavier bracelet and it allows the core color to really show through.

Thanks, Mr! I'm debating what weave to learn next. Heck, even if no one ever buys any of my stuff, this is just fun figuring out how to do this stuff!

People will buy, you just have to be serious about your work and advertise.

ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1401423613.670875.jpg ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1401423629.207481.jpg My first Double Wide Piranha. I used an oversized shackle that I found at Lowes. It matches up well with the size, but is a bit heavy. It also seems to be more of a pain to attach when on the wrist. I think for sales I'm only going to make this design on a plastic buckle.

I wear that same kind of shackle on my EDC bracelet. You'll get used to the weight. I'm so used to the shackle that I don't like wearing the buckles anymore.

I made a necklace like that earlier this year using a four strand round braid. The necklace looked nice but I didn't plan properly for the safety clasp.
Did you attach the clasp first then started the braiding?
