    This tutorial is missing key information. It skips steps and does not include information on how to finish the keychain. Had to look up other Cobra paracord tutorials to find out what to do with the end pieces. I managed to make one, but no thanks to these instructions. This tutorial is not for beginners and should probably be labeled as such.

    Poor.

    Apparently this is your first time making a paracord project. They all pretty much end the same.
