This is Part II of the A.L.I.C.E. Pack Handle how to video. This installment shows two three strand braids turned into a loop for attachment of the handle to the pack frame. The braids are created by separating the six strands coming out of the Double Matthew Walker Knot (Part I - the Double Matthew Walker Knot) into two sets of three and braiding each approximately 1.5" long. The braids are then brought back together in a 6 strand diamond knot. The video shows how to secure the strands with electrical tape (my preference) to facilitate the diamond knot. The diamond knot technique that I demonstrate was learned from J.D. Lenzen's Fusion Ties Volume II, starting with a crown knot which in turn is raised into the diamond knot. The crown knot learned here will also be utilized in series, forming the "round crown sinnet" for the main body of the paracord handle. This will be shown in the next video of the series.
DISCLAIMER: Don't try this at home. The actions shown int this video were performed by trained professionals. No walls were harmed during the filming of this video.
We are taking this wall down as part of some kitchen improvements; so I decided to have some fun with it by taking a few of my paracord monkeys fist self defense creations to task. I don't expect anyone to be impressed as it does not take much to bust sheet rock. However I was having a good time and thought I'd share it. I also have been experimenting with I-Movie a bit with hopes of improving future videos.
