550 paracord wrapped sheath

Survival/Preparedness Forum

I thought I'd get creative tonight, so I wrapped my Mora knife sheath with 550 cord. Figured this would give me some extra cordage and also protect the plastic sheath Mora's usually come in. Though I'd share a pic.

Odd. I can see the pic, and others have (I've received pm's about it).

Hmmm, well here is a link to the pic on my board if some can't see it here;

That's pretty good work - is there a place online where you can learn the wrapping pattern, like you can with some other 550 cord projects?

Yes sir,

Take a look at the channel as well. He's got tons of ways for wrapping. I'm not a crafts-guy, but this was fun.

Deputydave,

That is a GREAT IDEA! Several months ago I purchased a "Mora" knife and combining a para-cord with it is something I never thought of.

Thanks for posting the "How To" video as well.

The pic of the sheath with the Orange paracord looks a lot different than the single-strand in the video. How do you do the one around the sheath?

Wait...are you trying to tell me you didn't steal my idea from about 5 years ago?

Survival/Preparedness Forum

By the way, the red painted one now has red paracord around it. The green one is now painted orange and has orange cord around it. I did that so I could see them when I set them down. I used one for field dressing a deer in the dark about 5 years ago, set it down in the leaves and lost it for a couple months. Went back with a metal detector and found it but decided to paint it so I could find it easier if dropped or set down. Added the wrist loops so I wouldn't set it down while using it.

I'm not sure about the orange one, found that doing an online search. Take a look at that YT channel, there are hundreds of videos that guy has put up on wrapping cord. The video I posted above is the one I choose for my sheath, using the sheath instead of the pole in the video.

I'm glad I found it (by accident) while surfing the net. I've made three paracord bracelets this morning using another video on that guys channel. Uses a Solomn's Porch weave....whatever that is
