Pop 'lanyard' into the search engine and it should throw up all sorts of examples, as well as some nice decorative knots to finish off with. What did you have in mind?
+100 on Stormdrane!!!
Hello allI am very new here so please excuse my ignorance! I've seen a few pictures of SAK's with tightly wound paracord/rope attached to the keyring. Unfortunately I have no idea what the term is for this so could someone let me know? I'd like to make one myself. Many thanks in advance for your help!Cheers

What did you have in mind?Fantastic, thank you. Apologies again for ignorance! I basically wanted a soft yet sturdy chain/cord/handle for SAKs, as I'm a bit wary of putting a plastic or metal keychain on there, as I don't want to get the SAKs scratched up in my pocket!

If you seek to rectify that, do not apologize, for you are attempted to be not ignorant. This is a good place to ask questions.Unless you like being ignorant. If you revel in your ignorance, run. Very fast. Everything these guys have said, especially Stormdrane. He's kind of a wizard with paracord. For smaller SAKs, I like using braided mason twine though- small, strong and a lot easier to find that Type I paracord. Just remember that a lanyard is a trap for any chemical or biological nasties you put your knife into. And always be mindful of it- if wet, it's a shock hazard, if free, it will get hung up, so I like to be able to remove them quickly.
Here's what I use. I got tired of my pocket knife falling out of my pocket while seated in the car, movie theater, desk chair, etc etc. (Image removed from quote.)
