SAK paracord keychain/key-cord?
« on: January 05, 2017, 10:58:32 AM »
Hello all

I 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

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?

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!

No probs! Paracord is an ideal material for a lanyard - all my EDC SAK's have them. Leather cord is also good, and there are a couple of good looking but simple decorative knots ( Matthew Walker and diamond knots spring to mind).  :tu:

I have couple more decorative ones on my stuff...

This one on my Swisschamp


Not a SAK, but one of my lanyards anywas:


There are quite a few simpler ones to choose too and we do have a Paracord thread in here: http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,3354.0.html

It's a long thread, but tons of paracord info and pictures  :)

I dont put SAKs on keychains either ... a paracord lanyard like a box or barrel knot, even kids at camp learn them and are a good start for you. You can take out the inner core so it wont be too 'fat' if you want. A piece of leather with an overhand knot is quick and easy (yes Im lazy)...

Ignorance means you have not yet learned. 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.  >:D

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.
