    i've decided to make a couple paracord bracelets. i've found tutorials that are quite informative. i have no real knotwork or brading experience. what i'm trying to find out is: which method, or design, will allow for the MOST amount of cord to be carried on the wrist. i want it to look nice, but am concerend more about how much cord is condensed and how easy it is to unwind/use the cord.

    thanx in advance, for any help

    A king cobra knot would utilize the most cordage

    To clear any misconception up, what is commonly called a "King Cobra" knot is actually a fusion knot known as a Solomon Bar. This is one of the easiest beginner knots. It does use cordage like mad. 8' of paracord, knotted properly creates a 6" flat bar with a nice 1" loop on one end for attaching to a split ring.

    Here are some great tutorial videos on how to tie a Solomon Bar:

    That would be a "cobra" knot, not a "king cobra" knot

    The "King Cobra" is simply "over tieing" the existing solomon's bar with another set of stitches....

    99.9% of people refer to the basic Solomon Bar as a "King Cobra" knot. A Double Solomon Bar is the true "KING". It is a Solomon bar none-the-less. Have to know the basic Solomon bar before you try the double.
