PARA CORD MIL-C-504H TYPE III: SPECSPara-cord or 550 cord is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used as the suspension lines for parachutes. Now both military personnel and civilians use para-cord as a general-purpose utility cord, it has a soft braided durable outer shell and is extremely flexible making it the perfect wrap for knife handles or a spear in a survival situation. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size and smooth outer texture.
As a normal course of wear and tear, or in the event that you wish to change the colour of your wrap, you may wish to have your para-cord handle re-wrapped. This is a service we offer at only nominal cost. Please contact us should you require more information about this service.
