Whenever I find a new knotting book with more than a couple of new ties that I feel I will use, I am very happy. I am happy with this book. Even more than the cool two color ties that Mr. Mikkelson includes, I was impressed by the ties he did not include. Online sources often suggest the Cobra or Solomon tied over a loop, the Blaze Bar (J. D. Lenzen) or the Ladder Rack as Rapid Deployment ties. None of those are included, but the sound and fundamental Ripcord Sinnet by Lenzen is included. Since I am planning a hatband for my Henschel Aussie Style hat, I will be using a whole lot of cord. There are some really fine ideas here. I only wish Todd had covered a D-shackle option that I saw in an online mail order version that looked like Thick Zipper from Lenzen at TIAT. These are all "ball and loop", but anyone accustomed to buckles can work it out, or adapt from Todd's first book with the pull clip. Very impressive, and the pictures were clear. I also like that this author repeated each step more than a single time. Mr. Lenzen seems to be single stepping more and more, which I find harder to work with. Very good paracord sinnet book.
I am a firm believer that Todd is one of the finest knot inventors around. This book is nothing but sinnets. And for people like me that are sick of seeing the same old cobra stitch, this would be a great way to increase your inventory, as well as your tying expertise. This book is awesome.
I firmly believe that Prepper Paracord is Todd's fifth symphony. Prepper Paracord has historic sinnets and one-of-a-kind sinnets that Todd has created. I really enjoyed this book and tying the unique paracord bracelets in it. The Gator sinnets are my favorite! I would recommend this book to any serious paracordist.
Paracord sinnets seem to be everywhere these days. The best part of these are the quick deploy feature. Being able to take them apart to have the cordage is the benefit. Preppers really need to get a copy of this book.
Very clear instructions even for the beginner to understand. Convenient to be able to download to my kindle, instead of having to wait for a book to be delivered.
Multiple ways to store your paracord in an easy to use and undo from storage in a quick manner when and if you need it in a hurry should it ever be necessary.
My husband loves this one the most because they all can be used in a real emergency. He says why have them if that's not the point.
Simple detailed instructions for beginner and advanced knotter alike.
