I worked in the shipping department in the garment industry.  A box cutter was a necessary instrument to carry.  I made this to identify mine.  I followed a pattern for a manila boat fender using 3 strands of cord.

I retired after having used it for several years and I still keep it attached to the box cutter.  It is a bit ratty but still functional.  The Matthew Walker Knot that I used to finish the fob was tot tied tightly enough and came loose.  I modified the MWK and buried the ends in the fob .
