Introduction: Paracord Self Defense/Survival With Duct Tape
Step 1: Create the Monkeys Fist
I used a jig which makes it way easier. First you put your core in the jig. Then wrap around 8 times on each side and tighten.
Step 2: Duct Tape Role
First get a pen tube. Wrap duct tape around until you get the desired amount. Cut off excess pen tube. Feed the two strands through the tube.
Step 3: Braid
For this step i used the four strand round braid. But you can use many other knots. Just choose one you would like the best. Keep repeating the knot until you get the length you want.
Step 4: Handle
For the handle you also can use pretty much any knot. I used the crown knot.
Step 5: Key Ring
I used a crown knot again to secure the key ring to the handle. Then cut of the excess paracord and melt it.
Step 6: Final Product
This is what you should have after it all is done.
