i just bought a bunch of paracord so i can start making these types of things and have it on hand.
Harbor frieght has magnizium fire starters for like $2.00 right now. I picked one up and through it in my hunting pack.that's a neat idea for the knife. my cord should come id today so i'll start practicing. i might have to throw something on my knife.
i ordered a flint/stone military grade fire starter and it came in yesterday. it was on a lanyard and my two year old saw it and thought it was keys. he had to have it and kept running around trying to open doors with the striker. i was planning on buying him some keys and getting a ring for him so he can be like daddy... now i'll make him a paracord ring! he'll be ready too!

I have good experiences buying my paracord online through Supply Captain (http://www.supplycaptain.com/). Many colors and ratings with fair pricing for the good stuff.Im going today to pick up a couple of these
As far as the paracord......
I just spent an hour and a half looking at where to buy this stuff, how to make bracelets/lanyards/gun slings and WOW, i know how i will be spending my insomnia time later!!!
Take two different color lengths half the normal length (if you usually use 8' for a bracelet, use two 4' lengths). Heat up the ends with a candle until they melt, then join them together.anyone know of different patterns or how to use 2 different colors
