"Awesome awesome explanation of a wide (long) turks head! Now I can finally attempt to master this frustrating knot. It seems that most people don't want to share this info and ABOK loses me. A small turks head is relatively easy for me but this sheds some light on the whole thing. Thanks! " --MrBlack751 YouTube channel comment

  • Paracordist on pre and post shrinking paracord / 550 cord - why you should do it and how!
    I prepared this video in response to the numerous inquiries regarding statements I've made in videos about pre-shrinking paracord. Here's the bottom line - preshrink size-sensitive items. A bracelet for example, will shrink over time if the cord is not preshrunk. If the bracelet was a perfect fist to start, it will become too small. Don't fool yourself into thinking it won't shrink if you don't get it wet. Sweat, rain, humidity, condensation etc. will eventually wet your items and all it takes is a bit of heat like the sun, to shrink. On the flip side; post shrinking (either by carefully pouring hot water over the project, or dipping in hot water) will tighten your knots beyond what you could comfortably do yourself! Great for hatchet, knife and hiking staff wraps as well as monkeys fist knots.

    The quality, USA made 550 cord I use (and sell) from Gladding Braided products will shrink approximately 5%, but lesser brands will shrink even more - so best to do your own test to determine how much more to pull off before shrinking so you don't come up short.

  • Paracordist How to make a two color paracord bracelet (Cobra Weave) / Solomon Bar

    The cobra stitch or solomon bar is by far the prevalent paracord "survival" bracelet style. Americans making these for a bit of extra scratch are now being sideswiped by Made in  China versions selling everywhere for a couple bucks. One thing is certain, all that I've seen without exception are poorly made. Ugly burned ends in the worst places mar the product. Dual color bracelets are made without a secure and aesthetically pleasing way of integrating the two cords.

    With my first paracord cobra stitch bracelet video “Paracordist's How to make a paracord bracelet (Cobra Weave) / Solomon Bar w/ no burns & Ultimate Jig” I sought to teach you how to make the solid color bracelet with efficiency, consistency, quality and pride using the Ultimate Bracelet Jig and paracord fids. Now I give you the latest installment "Paracordist How to make a two color paracord bracelet (Cobra Weave) / Solomon Bar".
