Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.[1]

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic; depending on the application this can be either an asset or a liability.

We offer you, dear Lord, after taking away
from us the person we held dearest on this earth,
our sorrow for the peace of his soul.
Rest in peace Pareng Serge ;(





There comes a time for all of us
when we must say goodbye, but memories
of those we love live on and never die.

Got the Baddest karambit folder in the market;-)

As proven by its etymological roots, the kerambit originated From West Sumatra and spread to Java where, according to folklore, it was inspired by the claws of big cats. As with most weapons of the region, it was originally an agricultural implement designed to rake roots, gather threshing and plant rice. As it was weaponised, the blade became more curved to maximise cutting potential. Through Indonesia‘s trade network and close contact with neighbouring countries, the karambit was eventually dispersed through what are now CambodiaLaosMalaysiaMyanmar, the Philippines and Thailand.[1]

Culturally the karambit was a subject of condescension in Java because of its history as a weapon of the agrarian peasantry, as opposed to the kesatria (warrior class) who were trained in the keraton or palace. European accounts tell that soldiers in Indonesia were armed with a kris at their waist and a spear in their hands, while the kerambit was used as a last resort when the fighter’s other weapons were lost in battle. Nevertheless it was popular among women who would tie the weapon into their hair to be used in self-defense. Even today, silat masters regard it as a feminine weapon. The renowned Bugiswarriors of Sulawesi were famous for their embrace of the kerambit. Today it is one of the main weapons of silat and is commonly used in Filipino martial arts as well.

Like its Southeast Asian counterpart, the Indian bagh nakh was purportedly based on tigers‘ claws and is concealed in the hand. The much simpler kerambit, however, was originally only a miniature sickle, slightly larger than the traditional Javanese rice harvesting knife and has never had the brass knuckle-type projections from either the handle or the pommel, as seen in some of the present day evolutions of the blade. Superficially the kerambit also resembles the jambiyah but there is no connection. The jambiyah was always designed as a weapon and serves as a status marker, often made by skilled artisansand jewelers using precious stones and metals, whereas the kerambit was and still remains an unadorned, modest farmer’s implement and useful utility knife.

Benefits of B1 B6 B12:
Vitamin B-1, also known as thiamine, is essential for many processes in your body. This vitamin provides support to the nervous system, to muscle function and to enzyme processes, and it helps your body to break down carbohydrates. Vitamin B-1 is also necessary for your body to make hydrochloric acid, which you need for digestion. Include vitamin B-1 in your diet through meats like beef and pork, beans, nuts and seeds, milk and wheat, rice, yeast and whole grain cereal.
Vitamin B-6 is important for your brain to maintain proper health, as it helps with both the development of your brain and regular brain function. Specifically, vitamin B-6 helps your brain make neurotransmitters and hormones that affect mood and your body rhythm. This vitamin is also found to reduce your chances of developing heart problems, including heart disease, stroke and heart failure, according to the American Heart Association. This result has been found in populations in Japan, North America and Europe. Find vitamin B-6 in foods like fish, meat, whole grains and fortified cereals, and in vegetables such as spinach and carrots.
Vitamin B-12 is necessary for your body to keep your blood cells and nerves in proper health. A lack of this vitamin can lead to anemia, loss of appetite and memory, weight loss, weakness and constipation. Vitamin B-12 is only found naturally through animal sources such as meat, seafood, eggs and dairy. You can also obtain it through fortified foods and supplements, although these forms are not as easily absorbed by the body.
