    Hi all,

    I'm new to paracording and am trying to make a nice looking dog lead.

    The best Ive seen on the net is this one and I'd like to replicate it.

    Could anyone tell me what the cylindrical knot is please in this photo?

    These online retailers charge to much for the fids.

    Sorry so long on reply. Phone app not sending notifications for some reason.
    I went to the Tandy leather store here in Fort Worth, think I gave $6.99 for them. Think hobby lobby was about 50¢ more. I lost one already so I will check again soon.

    Oh okay. I only made one fid last year just to see if I like using it and my plan was to make another one but I got comfortable with using one that I never thought about using two.

    But after I got my pair of forceps that is my go to choice for the majority of my paracording.

    This is a design I was introduced to by Tying It All Together. JD is the one who made the video and he calls it the "Stitched Solomon Bar" here is the link to the video http://youtu.be/SRgM578LJdA

    Its a turks head. The rest is a 2 strand round braid. The easiest round braid there is. But strong.
