Personally i'm very fond of the shark jaw for bracelets. The 4 strand round braid is starting to creep up on me though..

I'm starting to like the fishtail more. I made one bracelet before using the fishtail weave. I'm trying to figure out a better way to finish the ends.

J-Will, that is the shark jaw/pirahna tie. The sawtooth looks a lot like the fishtail to be honest. I like the color combo on that shark jaw pic though!!

If you figure it out let me know! I tried tucking back in and the ends always show and look bad. I don't like to "snip and singe" everything though if I can get a cleaner look

That was my exact same problem. I see a lot of fishtail bracelets made and I noticed the ends are snipped and singed. I guess that is the only way.

I think the sawtooth, piranha, and sharktooth is all the same? I like the fishtail, LOVE the piranha. This what you call a sawtooth?
Sexy! Not you, the bracelet. Let's not make this weird.

I have a hard time tucking the ends anyway since I keep my bracelet weaves tight so it's a pain to put a FID through... I just try to use my finger to drag some of the melted cord over the white core to hide it as much as I can if that makes sense...

Have you ever tried knitting needles? The ones with the hook? I use a small one to pull ends through tight weaves.

Nope... Haven't tried that yet. I may have to! By chance, do you know who has FID's for micro cord? or how to thread with micro? I came across a few spools and can't figure out a tool to let me use it!:mad:

I have no idea, maybe someone else does. You might be better off making your own. I have big fingers, so I haven't much tried to use the micro style cordage.

What is the name of that paracord? It looks good with the white paracord.
