Developed during World War II, paracord is one of the most famous types of cordage used by the military even today. It is strong, light, and can be used for thousands of different tasks, from the practical to the fashionable. Heavy on pictures, Adventures in Paracord will guide you through the basics of paracord weaving and its uses every step of the way. Learn to make survival bracelets that contain up to 20 feet of paracord for emergencies, stylish bracelets for both men and women, rugged and durable watch bands, keychains, lanyards, handle wraps, and even more!

Biographie de l'auteur

Nicholas Tomihama was born in Honolulu, where he lived until graduating high school. From there he went to Hilo on the island of Hawaii (the Big Island) to study business management at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Even before going to college, he had a knack for making things and working with his hands, perhaps coming from his father who was a jeweler and general jack-of-all-trades. In highschool, Nicholas made hand-turned wooden pens, collected coins, fossils, and toyed around with his father’s hunting bow. In Hilo, Nicholas was exposed to the party life and turned away from it, instead passing his time exploring the island and getting to his Hawaiian heritage. He began researching and studying native hawaiian crafts, carving bone hooks, crafting woven slings, and other hawaiian arts. After becoming more interested with craft than education, Nicholas returned to Oahu without a degree and married his highschool sweetheart, who had kept up with him in a long-distance relationship for the duration of his stay in Hilo. Nicholas now lives on Oahu with his wife and young son, Levi. He is an artist who makes hand-crafted bows and arrows and enjoys the sport of archery. He is also an avid reader and prolific writer, who recently published his first book, The Backyard Bowyer, which teaches how to build simple wooden bows for the complete novice.

Pas évident de voir les noeuds, couleurs et trajets de la paracordes sur ces photos noir/blanc si mal imprimées, elles auraient méritées un meilleur traitement sur photoshop pour que l'on y voie mieux.

Sinon bien pour moi qui n'aime pas aller sur youtube et voir leur vidéos.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Typos galore, poor Kindle images 12 juillet 2011
Par Roland Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Kindle version of this book has problems with ligatures. Every instance of "fi..." becomes "f..." so we have things like "this fts military specifcations for ft, fnish, and a consistent weight-bearing". This results in a rather distracting read. It has also been formatted with centered text rather than a flush left margin. While this seems secondary to the actual text, it's again, distracting. And then there are the arbitrary font size changes. At the end of a section, the font size changes for the next section title. But all the following text ends up the same size as the section title for a while. This happens in the first chapter under "Finishing the Knot."

Oh, and the picture of the tied cord at that point doesn't match the earlier work shown in previous pictures. It's not a big deal here since the technique is the same, but again, when you're learning a skill like this, you expect that the next step will be the next step, not something similar from another task.

Lastly, and for this I should have known better, the Kindle images are difficult to see. There is, of course, no color, so the author using colored paracord to make it easier to see doesn't work very well; everything is shades of gray. Worse, the images look nice and large on my iPhone, but on an actual Kindle, some of them are quite small so I'm squinting trying to see exactly what was done.

This is all before I've finished the first chapter. Still, the number of steps shown for this first project are sufficient to understand how to tie the knot (and having read a number of knot tying books, I know this isn't always the case). So I'd like to give the book two different ratings: a 4 for content and a 2 for formatting, but the Kindle version is dominated by the formatting issues.

I got this book so that my teenage grandsons and I could make some survival items for them to take on their two month long ocean sailing adventure. I ordered some paracord too and then we waited in great anticipation for the items to arrive. On delivery day we set everything out on the dining room table, opened the book and began. The experience was frustrating and even more disappointing. Has anyone looked at these photos? They are all shades of gray with very poor lighting. In some photos it is hard to distinguish one gray cord from another. 'And, as you attempt to progress through the book the quality of photos gets even worse. Based on the beautiful full color front and back covers of this book we expected something more. Not necessarily gloss color but at least quality high contrast, black and white well focused pictures. Survival? We didn't make it past the first knot. If you order this book you REALLY need help because you have wasted precious preparation time and money that could have been better used getting ready for your adventure. We can't get our time back but I would like to get my money back.

I do a lot with paracord. Braiding,tying, knots, etc. I saw this book and figured maybe there is something I have not seen in this book.
The book is a waste of time and money.
The book covers two very basic knots. I was very disappointed in this book.
The so-called author went into detail about himself and how he spent or wasted his time at college. While at college he should have read books from the library and taught himself more.
Do not buy the book unless it is for a absolute beginner and you have money burning a hole in your pocket.
Very Disappointed!

Adventures in Paracord does not cover a large number of topics, much of it is showing different ways to use the same braid. Since I needed to learn the actual braid itself this was just fine for me. I don't mean to imply that there is only one thing to learn here. Nicholas explains paracord construction, teaches you the basics of braiding and then shows you how to use it to construct useful things. The pictures are a little disappointing, clear enough but color and better lighting would have been nice.
One thing I want to add, and it is not specific to this book, I don't really "get" the facination with "Survival Bracelets". If I have a pocket, it is much simpler and more practical to just have a piece of paracord stuffed into it than to have to disassemble a bracelet to get one. How do you decide if "this" is a big enough emergency to take your bracelet apart? Perhaps I just don't spend as much time naked in the woods as others do.
I will definitely be using what I have learned in this book, Thank You Nicholas for taking the time to put it on paper so that we can learn.
