I got interested in making paracord items several months ago and bought a couple of "beginner" books on paracord projects. They were OK, but not as good as All Wrapped Up in Paracord. The other books only gave instrucions for making bracelets and the methods covered required using those little plastic buckles and listed LOTS of tools that were required.All Wrapped Up in Paracord is a MUCH better book for the beginner or for the experienced paracorder,. This book covers lots of different projects that will actually be useful to the outdoors-person. Exactly what I have been looking for.Some of the topics covered include a description of the different types of paracord that are available, a list and description of the small number of tools needed, the essential knots and weaving techniques, techniques needed for starting and ending wraps cleanly and neatly, and has projects for making lanyards, straps, key fobs and other useful products,I really liked the fact that no buckles are needed for the bracelets. I also really like the instructions for making various handle wraps for knives, walking staffs and other items. There is even a project teaching how to make a sling (as in David and Goliath)!The instructions are clear and well illustrated with black and white photographs which are very adequate to make the steps clear. Wherever it helps to make the steps more clear, different strands are shown in different shades of grey which make the differences very clear.Great book!
You have to spend money to make money.The information in this book was very good, and the instructions aren't bad. The issues are:A. While the cover is bright and colorful, the pictures in the book are all black and white. It does say that on the cover, but unless you zoom in and look you don't really notice in the ad.B. You can get very good detail in black and white if it's done correctly, even better than color in some instances. This was not one of those times. Now I don't know if this is a printing quality issue or not in this case. Several of the pictures use black paracord for the demonstration. This would have been fine if the picture quality was better or the lighting was different, but in many cases it makes it really hard to see and follow the overs and unders of the various knots. The pictures that use "colored" paracord are much easier to make out and follow.The book does have everything I was looking for, it just takes a little longer to pull off since you have to read and look at the pics more closely and a little longer than one usually would otherwise. Being a visual/tactile learner I would have preferred better pics.All in all the book is still useable and accomplishes that it was intended to do.
I just got this book as a supplement to my paracord craft reference library. It is a pretty good book and has several things that JD Lenzen's books do not have.It has some interesting wraps for machete handles and stuff like that.I like this book and it makes a good addition to Fusion Ties vol.1 and 2 which I highly highly recccomend!
Majority of book is dedicated to Knife/Tool wrapping with only a small portion on bracelets and other items. I also found some of the instructions overly complicated. It WAS helpful but I honestly was disappointed. Most of the bracelets stuff can easily be found online. I was hoping for some more advanced or different patterns than the 'norm'.If you are wanting to wraps knifes/tools etc then this is the book for you.If you are wanting to learn different knots/patterns for braclets/key chains/lanyards etc. I would not purchase.Depending on what you want to do this COULD be a great book for you.
Good read. There is a lot of practical instruction in this book. You can tell that Mr. Tomihama knows his stuff and that he enjoys working with his hands. I really appreciated the bonus project at the end; a how-to for making a sling -- you know, a David & Goliath type weapon/sling.
I bought several for gifts. Nick does a great job introducing you to the basics of wrapping. No book has the ability to show you how to make a Turks Head knot with drawings or photos, but with this book and a little help from YouTube, (The Backyard Bowyer), you can do what you need to do. This is a fantastic starter for those wishing to dabble, and possibly get serious about using paracord for more than what it was intended for. I highly recommend this for Preppers, Survivalists, Scouts, and military types looking to think outside the box when it comes to wrapping handles of any type, including knives, but also cases, etc.
It lacks more detail on instructions on how to end knots and does not have beginner's knots which makes it difficult
There are a lot of different knots and stuff in here. I have just started to explore the book, but the instructions are very detailed with lots of pics making it easy to get great results.
