Paracord Bracelets

Paracord can be extremely useful in a survival situation. Unraveling your bracelet gives you a good amount of cordage for tying together a shelter, raft, restraining a bad guy, making a fire bow drill, replacing a broken shoelace, etc. If you pull out the inner strands you then have more lashing material, dental floss, fishing line, suture, snare line, etc. I'm sure you can think of even more uses!

Besides bracelets, paracord can be incorporated into tent tie-out lines, dog leashes, collars, rifle slings, purse straps, lanyards, key rings, wrapping handles on knives and tools, etc.

In this class I'll teach you the cobra and king cobra braid. I also know a couple of simple braids and twists to make keychains, but the focus of this class will be for everyone to go home with their own bracelet! I have "kits" in many colors for $3 (my cost) which includes a plastic buckle and enough paracord for one bracelet. Or bring your own materials! If you have a problem with money, I'm also a big believer in the barter system. I give free kits to kids, and if the kids are too small to braid I give them little pre-made bracelets.

Address will be sent to "yes" RSVP's the day before.

    Good class, great students! The host had beverages, the perfect set-up and displayed various paracord, hardware, and had jigs! Now that I've used a jig I can make bracelets much faster! Big thanks to Ken for hosting this and sharing his knowledge!

    Great class. With Chris and Ken were great as instructors. Each had a different method which helped my wife a lot. They are great sources of info and materials.

    This class will be held outside. Although there's a fire pit, you may want to bring a jacket if you get cold easily. I'll email the address on Monday.

    I wish I could attend, but I have class at that date and time. Perhaps if it is held on a weekend in the future I will be able to make it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
