So what the hell is up with paracord? It is universally on everyone’s survival supply list … but searching for paracord on the internet and all I see is article upon article about how to make bracelets!
Going out on a limb here, but I think its safe to assume that its useful because its lightweight, compact and you can use it to tie things up, hang things, and potentially snare things. Regardless, the key to using this tool is to develop a level of skill at tying knots. To that end, I’ve found an excellent iPhone application called Animated Knots by Grog LLC that has a wealth of animated examples on how to tie knots for all manner of activities.
