This is a simple key chain with a few supplies wrapped up in a small para chord key chain. The supplies could be used in a pinch when camping or hiking, although you hope you never need to! It contains a few feet of rope, a small knife, fishing line, fishing hook, and a strike anywhere match.
Step 1: Supplies
For this project you will need:
small pocket knife (I used a small swiss army knife that contains a small knife, scissors, file, tweezers and toothpick)
Fishing Line (I used about 10 feet)
Strike anywhere match
Sandwich Bag (not shown in photo)
Rope of your choice (Depending on the size of the knife you use length will vary. I used about 15ft, but had a lot of excess. about 6 ft would have been fine.)
Key Ring (not shown)
2nd knife or scissors (for trimming excess rope)
Lighter (to burn rope ends)
Step 2: Step 1
Begin by cutting the corner out of the ziplock bag so that the match fits inside and can be wrapped up. This will help keep the match dry. Tie the fishing line to the fishing hook.
Step 3: Step 2
Place the match wrapped in the plastic and the hook on the knife, and tightly wrap them both to the knife with the fishing line tied to the hook. The hook will act as an anchor. once wrapped tuck the end away so that the line does not come undone. I tucked the end of my line between the match and knife.
Step 4: Step 3
Cut your rope to the desired length, I cut mine to about 15ft, and use the lighter to burn the ends so that they do not unravel.
Find the center of your rope by folding it in half. take the center and insert it through the small keyring on the knife. Then feed the loose ends through the loop of rope just created. Pull the loose ends until the knot is tight.
