Paracord on knife

PostAuthor: gunforlife » Thu Feb 16, 2012 1:31 am

Friends,
what is the real purpose of a paracord on knife handle and sometimes seen on the sheath ?
Is it only for asthetic or there are practical purposes also?
I am a no knife man yet but really getting hooked to it.
Trying to get few good knives, and understand the knife world.

Regards.

To make the handle more comfortable, or to add grip, or, you can always untie the paracord and use it in a survival situation. dbanana

If your knife fails to kill the chicken, you can hang it to death using the paracord. :wink:

Hey

Actually The paracord can be tied on to the knife handle as a standby, or even kept separately. Its just a length of rope which is lesser in dia than normal ropes, but with high strength, that's what makes it very versatile in use, it can take your body weight too.

Some knifemakes use paracord as a handle-wrap, instead of wood/micarta/g10 etc. The cord is tightly woven on the handle, and then epoxied/glued so that it does not move. Something like this:

The paracord wrap on the knife handle is just to give the knife a more comfortable and secure grip. The wrapped sheaths are just a means of carrying some extra paracord with oneself to be used when the need arises.

Paracord is also known as 550 cord or Type III. This is the most commonly available one. Called 550 as its tested and rated for a minimum breaking load of 550 pounds. The cord is made up of an outer cover or sheath and 7 inner (separate) yarns / strings which are again individually made up of 3 strands each.

If needed the over cover may be stripped off and the inner strings may be used for various applications limited only by ones imagination..

There are many uses of a paracord on a knife. Google it, some very interesting videos on YouTube are also available that explain the use of a paracord.

You an order from olive planet in Bangalore

guy do you think the asking price of olive planet for the paracord is justified and are there any alternatives.
