Attention TCU Fans!

I have a newe color in my enventory called "bright purple" which is bright indeed. This post is a bit of a throw back to a post I did last year entitled "Team Spirit" but it serves as a reminder that I can do just about any school colors you may throw at me. Below are a couple pics of my TCU bracelts. Enjoy and feel free to contact me for custom designs.

Wide Braid / Watch Band

This one has a few names such as the "ladder rack" or "D-guard" to name a couple.  If you like a wider profile to your bracelet it's perfect and it makes the best watch band of all the braids I have tried to date.

New design for dog collars!!!

A lot of thought and effort went into the production of this new design and since my first sale I am now getting one order after another from referrals.  And to give you an idea as to how much cord is used, this collar was made for a medium size Shepherd with an 18" neck size and it contains about 45' of 550 paracord.  Some other features are highlighted below.

The clasp here is a 3/8 inch stainless steel shackle and there is a stainless steel D-ring woven in next to it for attaching a leash.
One more stainless steel D-ring is woven in on the opposite side for dog tags.
As you can see in this close up, to the left of the shackle the two working ends of the cord are terminated facing inward leaving no ugly melted ends exposed.  And to the right, the D-ring for leash attachment is snugly woven in in a decorative pattern.
To put the finishing touches on its presentation I put a split key ring on the D-ring with a decorative knot attached.
Over all this collar has a quality feel to it when in your hand and you get an immediate sense of its durability.  Thanks for checking it out and feel free to contact me for quotes.  I make this collar in all sizes from Chijuajua to big Lab and in solid or two tone colors as above.

Hat Bands

I am finding that my hat bands are increasing in popularity as I am getting more and more orders for them all the time.  They contain 28' to 32' of cord on average,  look great, and will make all your hunting buddies jealous for their uniqueness.  As with the bracelets, you can chose from hundreds of color combinations, your choice of clasp style (knot and loop and stainless steel shackle are the most requested), and accents like pewter skull beads.

New Tactical Operater Series Bracelets

When seconds count in the activities you engage in and if you are one of those who are all about function and performance, I have a product for you. If you are an outdoors type then chances are Paracord/survival bracelets have become ubiquitous in your circles. I have been making them for quite a while now and my problem has always been the amount of time it takes to unravel one for use. WHAT IF IT'S AN EMERGENCY?.  So I set out to solve this problem and have come up with several new designs which allow a more rapid deployment of your cord.
This is a sinet braid which when the two working ends are pulled in opposite directions, the braid simply falls apart in a second.  It should be noted that the braid will not fall apart accidentally.  It takes intently pulling the ends in opposing directions for it to work.  Above is the 3/8 inch buckle option.  Below are the ball lock closures which are the fastest option.  I can go from it being on my wrist to completely unraveled in approximately 3-5 seconds!  
A close up of the ball lock on the rapid deployment bracelet.
Below is a traditional cobra weave with the addition of a pull tab negating the need for scissors or a sharp knife to cut out the melted ends for unweaving.  Just bite the end with your teeth and pull.  It still takes a minute to unbraid the thing but it gets rid of the need for tools to do it.

Dragons Tongue Watch Band

As promised in the previous post, here is the new Dragons Tongue braid incorporated into a watch band.  This is my personal watch that I wear every day and this braid performs perfectly.  It is not stiff or bulky and is just the right amount of width for a standard mans watch.
(See previous post for pics of this braid in two tone)

New Braid "Dragons Tongue"

The dragons tongue bracelet is a wider and flatter braid which I have found has many fans out there. It works really well for a unique watch band that will make every one you know jealous for its uniqueness. It can be done in one color of course or in two tone.

I am making an all black watch band in this style now and will post pics of it soon so check back in a couple days to see how it looks on a watch.
