    @Tigerden , one thing that often works for me on tight beads is pull the outer cord jacket back 2-3", cut the inner strands off, then pull the jacket back out. Burn the ends and while still melty, pull them away from the end of the cord with wetted fingers to create as thin a point as possible. Put one cord through first, stick the other pointed end in the hole, then push the two toward the bead while pushing and twisting the bead back towards the cord, using the cord already through to help work the other along until you can grab it.

    Lanyard Pics .jpg Lanyard Pics .jpg Thanks to Chazzy for some sage advice on getting beads through 550 paracord. It wasn't easy, lots of twisting turning and burning but I think they turned out well. The Shiro petal bead was bought here from a forum member.

    I’m definitely a fob over lanyard guy, and also only have fobs on select knives. These are a few.

    Nice set ups. Looks like you scored the new Rinkhals by Arno Bernard. Great knife. I have one with Thunderstorm Kevlar scales.

    New knife, new tail. I really like this 550 blue and black paracord and will soon need to replace the current hank. The knife is the Sigma by Russian master blacksmith and cutler Andrey Biryukov. The bead is a Dmitry Sinkevich large "Gaudi" which I've had for a few months before it found a home, sandwiched between two False Turk's Head knots. I really like this style of backspacer with the integral lanyard attachment which I also have on a number of Shiros, my Cheburkov Scout, and my RHK MP1.

    I've swapped over to the pocket clip lanyard method because I like to be able to take em on and off quickly. Just where I'm at now.

    Tried one with gutted cord and one without. I think I like the gutted better.
