    Twisted Knots Paracord Creations Survival Bracelets

    You can find this fellow on Facebook under Twisted Knots Paracord Creations. He makes paracord survival bracelets, zipper pulls, and key fobs. I know that there are a ton of these out there on the web but there are two reasons I have written him up in here.
    The first is that he has taken to doing this to defray some medical expenses incurred by his family. I've been lucky in life thus far in the realm of medical expenses but this is something I think about from time to time as I'm sure we all do.
    The second reason I am writing is that he will make and ship a paracord survival bracelet for $10.00 (United States currency). This is less than half the price that I've seen in other places that sell these things. The key fobs go for $5 and the zipper pulls are $3.
    I know this guy from another forum of which I am a member. He has a thread posted in there about these items and I have read a number of good reviews from other members who have purchased them from him so it seems that he makes a quality product. Plus you get 8-10 yards of paracord just in case. I just ordered one a few days ago and it has not arrived yet but I will post up when it gets here.

    I don't know. I've never made one of these myself and I don't know if amsteel would lend itself to this type of weaving because I'm not familiar with it, either. You could maybe go to his FB page and ask him via PM. I also don't know what, if any, cost difference would be.

    OK, I got mine today. I was out of town and it was waiting for me when I got home.
    This guy pays close attention to detail. The outer wrapper was a waterproof and padded mailer. When I opened that the bracelet was enclosed in a zip-lock bag to give it further protection from the elements. I have watched my wife prepare ebay stuff for shipping and I know what a painstaking process that is. Kudos for the packaging.
    The bracelet itself is great although I have never had one before so I can't compare it to anything. But the knots are neat and tight, there's no raggedness to the bracelet at all. He asked me for a wrist measurement and he nailed it, fits perfect. Plus he got the color scheme exactly as I ordered it. I wanted one called "The Thin Blue Line" and that is precisely what I received.
    All in all a pleasure doing business with him.
