    Does the "metal" part ever cut into your wrist? I am the clumsiest person, and I broke my diamond wedding ring, doing laundry. Its ok, Im not a big ring person.. lol..
    I wear my paracord bracelet daily, yet to make the whistle bracelet, Im afriad Id slice my wrist getting it caught on something though.. I like the design though :)

In october 2000 a wave kicked a string of pots off the stern of the boat in heavy seas and I was in the wrong place at the right time and got tangled in the line. At 3:00am me and 20 pots went off the back. I was able to use my spyderco 93mm to cut free before the boat eighted back to me or being dragged to the bottom. That my friends is why I am no longer a stern man.

    Looks awesome!Only thing I would say is I'm a little opposed to the steel shackle type buckles incase it gets hung up on something i.e piece of equipment, it wouldn't break and you'd be dragged or worse

    I pick up those buckles from e-bay in a bag of 4 for $3.99 with free shipping. I make the double cobra stich bracelets and sell them to customers at work. here is a picture of one I made for myself it is black 550 with a marine grade harken stainless steel shackle. I like using shackles because the shackles can be used to connect things together if needed. I don't have any on hand with the whistle buckle to show right now.

    A whistle is a very handy thing to have! All my kids carry one at all times; so do i for the most part. I always have one on my person when in the field and so do my scouts. When we are in an encampment and I need to gather the boys, two short blows and they are there in seconds. Two short means it's feeding time! two long means they need to be back in the next 15 mins. I keep mine on a short lanyard with my mini mag and swiss army tinker.

    I don't care who you are...having a whistle on you is a very good idea. I never venture into the woods without one. Mine is tied to a long piece of 550 cord. I will run it through my belt loop closest to my front pocket and through itself again. I then let the excess hang in my front pocket.

    I never where ANYTHING around my neck or on my wrist!

    Good thinking for the kids, but I would even avoid the buckles.

    It is kinda bulky, but, its really not bad. I got used to it pretty quickly. I like the idea of always having it handy..I toss it off while Im sleeping, sometimes..
    I dont think the Mr would let me put a "whistle" on his,.. no big surprise, lol.. GI Joe and all.. but Id be ok with it!
    Just you wait, Im gonna be the best whistle paracord bracelet maker, bet you know what your getting for Christmas?? lol.. :)
    I got a bunch 1/2" rod left from a job.....and I dug out my jig to make dinner bells....the triangle kind....I'm going ahead with Christmas gifts myself....:)

    Last year I slacked and didn't get don until Nov 1....normally I'm done by the end of Sept with the shopping/ building gift thing.

    Some where close to 200 shopping days left.....
