Step 1:

In this instructable ill be showing you how to cut paracord with itself. In my case I didn't have a tripod or something similar to cut on so I made a loop and put in a vise.

Step 2:

You then can take a second piece of paracord and loop it through the loop or what you want to cut. I recommend wrapping it around twice, it creates more friction, which cuts faster

Step 3:

You then want to wrap the cutting cord around your hand or fingers, then move your hands back and forth while keeping good tension

Step 4:

You should hear squeaking and/or smell the cord. This is what it look like when it's cut.

Step 5:

Remember it will be hot or very warm. I hope this will help you if something bad happens. Feel free to follow and or comment
