Handy Paracord Handle


Instructables user keng made this nifty handle for a messenger bag from a piece of paracord and a few simple tools. The technique is called the Portuguese Sinnet (among other names) and makes for a nice chunky handle. The long length of paracord is good to have with you in case of zombiepocalypse (or, say, a hiking accident), too.

    Thanks for the kind words about my I’able. You’re right; you just never know when you’ll need a couple of yards of good stout cordage.
