Playing with paracord and knives tonight.

Anyone else have any good paracord creations?

I used a "Turks Head" to put a grip ring on a flashlight, which was useful until this particular flashight became mostly worthless. The gargantuan key to the lady's vehicle is on its own paracord keychain, and I used a scrap piece to make a silencer for my key ring, which cuts down on the jangling considerably.

Got a few more utilitarian uses here...

Boot laces - it's a little slippery, but if you "go around the loop" twice instead of once as you normally would, the resulting bow still functions properly, but holds far better.

the little dangly-ball things I have hanging off the bit-kit blades for my Leatherman make great zipper pulls.

I think paracord is too abrasive for the primary grip on a hiking staff, but I have some wrapped around above that spot, which is a better spot for holding the staff while descending. The top part of that wrapping is securely lashed to the staff, the bottom part is secured with a clove hitch and can be easily released.

The turks head above it is just decorative.

At the other end of the staff, I lashed a steel quick link. When I want both hands free, I release the clove hitch on the wrapping and run it through the quick link to make a makeshift sling.

Those are really nice! In the marine corps I took the inside stands out of the 550 cord and put my dog tag chain in it.

Kept the dog tags from making noise and flopping around to much.

EBay! That's where I buy all of mine.
Ebay worries me, don't want to end up getting some cheap crap cords that are not really 550

You just have to make sure the seller has listed the brand of cord. I have gotten some crap cord before. You can tell the difference by the thickness and rigidity. Most sellers will refund your money if you are not satisfied with the product. I buy tons of stuff on eBay. I sell tons of stuff too.
