Turks head knots are fun. You could do some handle wraps too. A netted item like a sling ammo bag. Bolas a dog collar..... thatís all I can think of right now

The ball bearings I needed finally turned up and, after lots of hard braiding, I finally got this together. It came out pretty good but has far from perfect braiding and the end knot is... serviceable. I think this stuff is actually quite different to the 550 cord you can buy everywhere as it didn't actually have much of core and doesn't easily squish down flat for braiding. As such, the whole whip is pretty chunky and not quite as sleek as most paraord whips. It's not going to win any competitions but this cracks pretty damn loud even with the very quickly improvised cracker so I'm happy.

I still have a hell of a lot of paracord so I guess I'll be making some different sling variations, SITH is coming up after all Cheesy

Will I be making another whip? Not for a long while. My fingers are still hurting and this was a small whip...
