    My brother carries an old Gerber machete while doing silviculture work thinning forested land to promote healthy new growth.
    The nylon sheath finally gave out so he asked me slap something together.
    Couldn't just slap something together so I made a real sheath and since I have been using 550 para-cord on some projects I used for hunter orange for stitching and a lanyard so he can find it when he sets it down in the woods. He had been tying a piece a surveyors tape to the handle.
    I've used the paracord on smaller sheaths as well. It's can be a good choice for the right type of project.
