    My love of working with paracord has just introduced me to Kumihimo. Just got back from buying the basic supplies - now to start playing around and see what happens. supplies.jpg

    Got me interested now. Just watched a quick video on YouTube. Seems simple enough once you get into a rhythm. I'm not one for lanyards on my knives but I think one or those with a spent . 45 case on the end might look sweet.

    The basic braid is made up of 8 strands.
    Here's an experiment with 8 different colors of paracord.
