What is your favorite, most trusted paracordsmithing tool? Give me some examples of the one you cannot live without! :cheers2:

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

Mine is an Xacto knife. Couldn't live without it.
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:

I would like to see a pic of some of your finished projects showing what you described above.
