Hi all you Urban Survivalist out there.

Welcome to my new website www.milspec550.com.au

This week I changed Internet host to Agility, www.agility.com.au , they have been very accomodating to my (sometimes annoying requests) a big thank you to Walter and Millie.

If you spot something that is not working on the website just let me know please.

It has been a busy month here at MILSPEC 550, making dog leads and pet collars, they are so popular it is hard to keep up with demand.

not only stocking my own market store and on line orders, but also my stockists.

Dutchess Martha in Bentleigh East

Snoozeez in Bacchus Marsh

Paragon Blur in Rye

I am looking for 1 or 2 more stores to supply, so if you know a pet store or boutique that may be interested please let me know.

This Sunday I will be at Lardner Park Craft Market, run by the lovely ladies from Craft Markets Australia.


Name one survival item with more uses than some high-quality survival paracord.

Go ahead, I’ll wait…

Done? Well, I bet the first items that came to mind were a good survival knife, a survival hatchet, multi-tool or duct tape; and you’d be right. However, today I’m going to argue that paracord belongs in this “many uses” category as well.

When left intact, paracord has lots of important survival uses and if you unweave the threads of the cord, the number paracord uses grow. Honestly, the real number of paracord uses is only limited by our lack of imagination.
