County Comm, one of which is a tether cord version of the leather neck lanyard I tied for a blog post last month.
Some of the items I received included some cool Copper Cord Clutch knurled lanyard beads, Flat Gate Clips, 3/32" Tether Nylon Cord, Machinist Screwdriver, and a couple neat Mil-Spec Stainless Steel Containers for storage.
For the neck lanyard, shown with a pocket watch, I used a four strand round braid, with safety break-away clasp, and a few Gaucho knots, one covering the clasp, a couple of small Turk's head knots on either side, and a couple of different sliding Gaucho knots above the ring hitched snap hook.
spiral pattern, the other with the diamond pattern. I made a loop at the starting end, a lanyard knot, added a bead, then tied another lanyard knot before doing the round braid for the body length, and then another lanyard knot, bead, attaching the gate clip, and tying another lanyard knot to secure it. Gaucho knots were then tied and tightened over the braid at each end. The copper beads should develop a nice patina, with handling over time.
I tied a simple Turk's head knot around the top of the pocket screwdriver. Anyone that does a bit of tinkering, needs a standard/phillips screwdriver, and these are pretty nice, with the knurled cap/body, stainless steel pocket clip, long doubled ended bit, and magnetic tip on the top end of the cap. The knot, tied with 0.9mm cord, is tightened over the knurling, so it's secure where it is.
paracord into one, with few other items.
