Anyone know where to find good/ high quality paracord, in different colors? It is sometimes used to wrap around handles/grips of knives as well as in making modern lanyards for pistols. Places of availability in Karachi will be appreciated...

Something like what is shown below:

i would suggest we better give some time to the new commers so that they can understand the norms and flow of the forum otherwise the person would feel uncomfortable and flee.

Would someone please check how much it costs (per unit length, etc)?

@all, sorry if i sounded rude or harsh.

@kagefox, sir as starfish and m1carbine have mentioned, your best bet is trying to look for it at an adventure-gear shop. however, IF you want it for using on knife grips or for a gun lanyard, i'm not sure if any adventure store will have a cord of suitably small thickness...

problem solved.
one of mine cousin was making them for other firm who were exporting it.i got bundles of it, for my PYJAMAS. once they made a sample for rock climbing which could not pass the due test.so we hang it with PIPAL tree and made some swings too.

Wow, totally forgot about this!

Abba got some for me from Faisalabad, but it was too thick to be used for the purpose I intended for it. Lost interest over time...

This is the one I have:

Thanks a lot, Denovo, sir. Could you please post a pic of it (along with something to judge the thickness) so that I can compare it to the one I already have?

I would like to begin this post by thanking Denovo bro, without whose help this mini-project could not have initiated...

I received the paracord bundle from him this morning... and thus began what I'd like to call ParaCord Project One - Lanyard :)

My brother and I made one each, both having the same basic design. Mine serves as a lanyard to my boot knife, while his version can attach to anything like a keyring. For both of us, this was our first attempt at this.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here goes...

@KF... Nice and creative work with paracord :) Both the versions are quite useful and look great.

@KK... I saw paracord in some shop at Sitara market this sunday. If your ideas are really becoming hard to tame,
you can go and get some from there :)

not a bad idea :)

KageFox
11-07-2010, 01:53 AM
Well, you are kinda right... it was a throwing knife... until I damaged the tip slightly while trying to learn to throw... now its just a rough-&-tough boot knife...

As for tutorials... look for "ParaCord Lanyards" at www.instructables.com

Rasal.Saleh
11-07-2010, 02:17 AM
Thanks Kagefox a word of advice from
when learning to throw knives its better if you use a large soft ( foam ) target and also the immediate area around the target should also be coverd in foam so the kn ife is not damaged now that you have done it, it dosent really matter but in the future maybe if you feel like learning.. Thanks for the tutorials though

It's available here in any number of colors in 50 foot, 100 foot and 500 foot lengths, or by the foot. I know of several sellers. If need be, you can have it shipped to me and I'll send it by mail. (Many sellers won't ship overseas, but they'll ship domestically. I do this for friends in Austria and Holland.)

My daughter even has a roll in pink, along with pink duct tape, pink camouflage, pink slings and cases...

She's not really that into pink, but it's become her trademark. Even her Camelbak is pink.
