    Looking good, and I like what you've done with the paracord!

    Thanks will I would like to incorporate a little 550 cord in everything I build I'm getting good at building different things. I want to make 550 cord pouches and many other things

    I like the cord wrap on the handle, it looks really nice. I have to ask though, have you tested this fork in a vise? Looking at the grain of the wood, it looks to me like the grain lines are running parallel to the stress point of the forks, which could lead to a potential failure, which could then lead to an injury to you. I could be wrong, but it appears that way in the photo, so I thought I'd ask.

    Looking alright, but of course the Rambone's main advantage is the ergonomics of the handle... and that won't be achieved by a flat boardcut wrapped in paracord.
