Throughout this Instructable I will be demonstrating how to make a fishtail style survival bracelet. Take your time as it can get a tad bit confusing at points. My survival bracelets are all designed so they can be deployed easier, and don't involve melting the ends to the bracelet. That reason alone makes "ending" the bracelet a little harder then most other tutorials where they simply have you melt the end and press it into the bracelet (I hate that!). What's the point of doing that? When you need to unravel your bracelet, your don't want to have to rip that thing off.
