Intro: Blaze Bar Woven Paracord Bracelet


When you are in a survival situation, every second counts. This blaze bar paracord bracelet is designed to quickly deploy. How quick you ask? Under 20 seconds! It is one of the better weaves I found for survival purposes, due to the fact you can get it apart so quickly and easily.

Follow this tutorial to make your very own blaze bar paracord bracelet and be at ease knowing you're a little more ready for an emergency situation.

This is my first instructable, and I am curious to know what you think. I will likely publish more tutorials here on instructables as well as my site, depending on interest. Let me know what you think in comments, either on instructables or on my site! I would also love project suggestions. I have gotten pretty good at paracord weaving, and hopefully, with giving clear instructions.

I have been trying out several different survival weave bracelets, and this is one of the best. I also like the tire tread paracord bracelet, the oat spike paracord bracelet, and the cobra paracord bracelet, which I currently have posted on my site.

Check out some of my stuff here: DIY Projects at DIYready.com

and if you are interested in Survival and Preparedness, I just put this together. Most have tutorials I wrote. All tested.

I also have a super tutorial on making a How to Make A Paracord Belt Instructions there, an awesome quick deploy survival belt using Slatt's Rescue Weave, with tons of photos of the process. You end up with a belt that quickly allows you to access 100 feet of paracord. The weave is a little tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it takes only a couple of hours to make. Looks awesome. I am going to put a video up on that one as well.

The original post I did for this blaze bar weave is here: , Making a Blaze Bar Paracord Bracelet


I know that is a lot to say about my site, but if there is interest on instructables, I will be reposting these here. Wanted to give you the links for now. I just built this smokehouse out of pallets. Think I will post it next.

Great job,but it really amaze's me,we had this in the 60's and 70's this tying of knots is called Macrame,used for making all sorts,infact the same knot is used in making fishing nets,lobster pot net work etc,goal nets,all sorts,but reallly nice work.

Hello, iv seen the blaze bar made with D-shackles before, and get how that works. But I'm not seeing how yours can be "quickly" deployed since both ends are captive... maybe I'm missing something.

Exactly. Shackles, knot/loop combo (or toggle/loops like mine) allow quick deploy. This won't. It's a good job on tying the bracelet, though.
