Personal Survival Kits (PSKs)

    I am a person who believes in being prepared. Sure, I have to deal with those out there who call me paranoid, but I just ignore them. Inevitably they seem to come to me to ask for something I have. It goes to show that preparedness is something that everyone can appreciate.

button to finish a braiding

This button can be used to finish a square or rounded knot braiding. It can also be done with more cords than the four I have used, but I'll show it with four to make it easier to follow. Also, of course, it can be done with leather lacing, and I think it looks beautiful when done that way. I use it alot on my leather lanyards.

New Victorinox Swivel Pouch

I really like the Victorinox One Hand Fireman model (it’s like the One Hand Trekker, but it has a corkscrew instead of the “T-handle” Phillips and also adds a very sharp serrated “rescue” blade to those on the OHT.) However, the OHF is one of the big 110mm SAKs and it’s just too darn big for me to carry comfortably in my pocket. I have purchased both the Cordura Vic pouch and the old-style Vic leather belt clip pouch for the OHF but I never really liked them.

Braided Lanyard

I have seen this braid called several things before, including the Survival Bracelet braid, but I am not sure what the correct name for it is.  I just call it a braided lanyard, and i think it looks really cool, as well as providing alot of length in a small package, and retaining the inner strands if you are using paracord.

Square Knot

This is how to tie a Square Knot Lanyard, Defender style.  This knot is a great way to keep two fairly long hunks of paracord or any other type of cord handy without having to put up with alot of bulk.

Round Knot

The Round Knot, also called El Knoto Roundo is similar to the Square Knot except it looks a little fancier.  It isn't any more difficult to tie, and is also great for a beginner like me!
