    Hey @Hutchjr that looks awesome. I really like the intricate parts with the black paracord.

    Do you have pictures of the back by chance?

    The back is a bit of a mess. To make the diamond patter I used 4 pieces of black with the strands remove. Alternating through the inside core and outside weaves. Once it was sinched I cut all the excess and burned to hold so it wouldn't catch anything and unravel.

    I'm sure there is a way to make it cleaner looking. I just couldn't figure out how.

    I think it looks great for as intricate as the front is. I'm was curious as I'm always trying to improve my braids and so forth. I suspect with more practice mine will look much better.

    Thank you!

    Yea I'm always trying to learn new techniques. This was my first crack at a tether for a rifle trigger guard. I usually just make bracelets or occasional cobra weave keychain.
