Type I paracord lanyard in a 4-strand braid with a micro clip attached to a McGizmo Aleph body (shadowgrass camo) Surefire flashlight.

The lanyard can be clipped to an edc bag, beltloop, backpack, etc... or wrapped around the wrist and clipped to itself for use as a wrist strap/lanyard.

I was wondering if you would be able to give a brief explanation on how you did this lanyard? it looks great. I can easily find a tutorial on how to do a 4-strand braid, but i would also like to know how you finished that thing. That is killer!!

Thank you very much!! :)

@Anonymous, I started that one at the clip end with two centered strands doing a four strand round braid(diamond or spiral if you use two different colors).

It's been awhile, but I believe I used splicing to finish the loop/eye end, and with one of the end strands went back over that with common whipping, to hide the not so good job of my splicing.

I'm still not very good at getting splicing to look nice, but nowadays I'd cover it with a Turk's head knot... ;)
