This 52'' belt contanes 84 ft. of parachord (550 chord) and a 3 in. buckle that doubles as a flint striker. The weave of the belt is made so that if you need to, you can access 2 strands of 42 foot chord easily. My friend, Karl (kaiga), has made the belt buckle out of 1095 spring steel from a garage door spring. It was forged, and then heat treated, and then added to the end of the belt using the rest of the parachord that is left over. The pin for the buckle is just simply a wire coat hanger bent and placed in at the end.
Step 1: Materials
1) 2- 42 ft strands of parachord (depending on the size of the belt)
2) 1- buckle
3) 1- coat hanger
4) 1- scisers
5) a source of fire (for melting the ends)
6) a will to finish an amazing belt
Step 2: Making the Weave
Step 3: To Add the Buckle
Step 4: To Use
To use the flint striker, wrap your fingers on one side of the loop, and strike flint, or a rock, on a sharp edge. If you strike it right, you should get sparks.
