A "Bend knot" is a type of knot that is used to join to loose cords, ropes, or strings together. Since my profile is all about using paracord, I use bend knots when I need to tie the inner strands of my 550 cord together to make longer lengths of cord. A 10 foot length of cord which comes from your bracelet can turn into 80 feet at 50 lb. test, and over 200 at 10 lb. test. Things like fishing, building shelters, sewing and much more become much easier.
