Chalk one up for the "little guy"! I am now the proud holder of Utility Patent No.: US 8,925,348 "Survival Bracelet"! My message to those with greater resources who took my idea and tried to cash in and even patent it as their own - you failed.
Get the original, get the best. We put survival into the "survival" bracelet. http://www.paracordist.com/best-survival-bracelet-paracord-550-cord/
