Tip of the Day: V-Cutter Modification

Here's an interesting little mod that a reader passed along to improve the fit of the OscarDelta v-cutter in the elastic sleeve of their survival bracelets. Here's their description

I thought you might be interested in a slight modification I did to get my v-cutter to really fit well. I found that I could bend the handle of the cutter just aft of the blades and rivets to a radius that closely matched that which the elastic sheath would normally acquire when wrapped around a wrist. This is the case even when I have the accessories in there. I took some of the trimmed Kevlar core and made a loop for the v-cutter which I then tuck under the elastic sleeve. I use the handcuff shim to stuff the knot from that loop into the sleeve alongside the two free ends.
