About this design:

I decided to learn how to knot paracord. This is a snake knot. The toggle is a drilled ferrocerium Rod for fire starting. The striker can be worn on a belt loop. The paracord is strong enough to hold 550 lbs. The inside of the paracord has 7 triple strands,1 Dyneema fishing line,1 waxed linen and 1 cotton sewing thread. The Waxed Linen Tinder is red. It is waterproof. Just pull it out, separate the threads and use the rod and striker to start a fire.
