I received a couple new Titan skulls last week from County Comm, in brass and copper, along with a new copper Peanut Lighter, and a neat little adjustable sized Twist Vault container.
I gave JD's(TIAT) Double-Ripcord Utility Strap a try with the brass skull for use as a paracord keychain lanyard/fob, using about four feet each of electric blue and bright red paracord, doing a few wall knots on each end to attach the skull and the snap hook.
Backbone Bar' to, back in 2011.
I added a Gaucho knot to the Twist Vault, with a length of 3/32" dark brown goatskin lace/leather, that I bought from Hobby Lobby(online).
The containers aren't heavy duty/crushproof/waterproof or anything like that, but they are pretty cool for what they are, and you could certainly find all kinds of EDC items to store in them, like matches, pills/meds, batteries, ear plugs/phones, cord, etc..., and toss them in a bag, backpack, pouch, or in your vehicles glove box.
I may try making a small leather pouch for the copper lighter, tying a longer Gaucho knot, but haven't decided yet. I like the way the copper patina develops over time, and may just leave it exposed on a keychain for a while to see how it looks...
JD(of Tying It All Together) was going to add the Double-Ripcord Utility Strap(DRUS) tutorial in his next book, 'Paracord Fusion Ties: Volume 2' due out this summer, but decided to leave it out and add something else in its place, so he instead shared the YouTube video earlier this week.
