SurvivorCord is our original patented MIL-STYLE paracord with three potentially life-saving internal strands added: Fishing line, waterproof fire-starter, and multi-purpose utility wire.

SurvivorCord XT is SurvivorCord...but better! Built for Bushcraft, this latest incarnation of our patented paracord upgrades the internal survival strands for better outdoor recreational utility.

Elastic ShockCord has 100% stretch, a tensile strength of ~100 LBS, and is ideal for creating bungee cords and securing or tethering items to your equipment or vehicles.

Double Overhand Knot



Double Overhand Knot
Double Overhand Knot
The Double Overhand Knot is simply a logical extension of the regular overhand knot, made with one additional pass. The result is slightly larger and more difficult to untie. It forms the first part of the surgeon’s knot and both sides of a double fisherman’s knot. The strangle knot is a rearranged double overhand knot made around an object. It is sometimes used to secure items to posts. 


Tying the Double Overhand Knot

Form a loop in the rope, and then pass the end through it. Pass the end through the loop once again, and then tighten the knot to make a secure stopper knot.

Uses for the Double Overhand Knot

The Double Overhand Knot is based on the Overhand Knot with an additional turn. It creates a reliable, moderately large, stopper knot but can also be used to increase the security of another knot, such as the Bowline Knot.
