About two feet (per cord), per 1-inch of strap. A 30-inch long belt would hold nearly two 60-foot long cords (or 120-feet of cord, in total). Also…the technique allows you to make the belt as wide as you'd like it to be. In that, working with two cords, is just as easy as working with three or four or more!

Popular lore is that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross, a sacred symbol and solar motif associated with Celtic mythology. Whatever its true origin, the symbol remains a powerful one. With a significance that has spread to many, well beyond its origins, and to all parts of the world.

Generated, as the name implies, with opposing Solomon Bars (slightly modified and innovatively applied), the finished piece looks far more complex than it is to make. Note: The wooden sword used to demonstrate the tie was sculpted by Thomas Elledge of Salinas, California–a member of the fusion knotting community, friend, and fellow blue collar worker by day.
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X Named for its similarity in appearance to the tooth like "tongues" of mollusks, The Radula is a sublet modification of the Genoese Sipper Sinnet. Creating a jagged, dual colored pattern, the tie makes an awesome bracelet, as the following video shows. The artwork featured in the introduction is mine.

Generating a spectral array of colors, the bracelet of this bar is both eye-catching and sturdy. Still, as mentioned, this bar is merely a starting point for a variety of other asymmetric ties. So be sure to play around with the technique. If you keep at it, you're sure to stubble into something new!
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X Fusion knotting is moving forward. Practitioners are understanding the principles of the fundamental theories and tying techniques, and so…I now wish to steer you toward foundation techniques that are, in themselves, the beginning of a vast quantity of new and innovative ties. First up…the Snake Knot tying technique. Or as I have created, the mated Snake Knot variant. Shown here in its most fundamental form, I will over the course of the next few months show you how this foundation tie can become a wide range of fantastic tie designs! In short, rivaled only by the Endless Falls, the Snake Knot is one of the most adaptable ties I know. Side Note: Reviews for PFT (i.e. on Amazon) and multiple online comments have (in effect) suggested I should stop teaching my weekly videos and/or charge for them (via a pay site). Further, I'm being told I should only catalog (through my books) techniques not yet shown on YouTube. Doing so would (in my opinion) stunt the knowledge people are currently gaining, and I wish to do neither. This said, what are your thoughts? Is there a large contingent of people who actually want me to stop showing you techniques on a weekly (YouTube) basis? And instead would rather only see my ties summarized on a yearly basis (via my books)? I'm confused by this, but multiple people have called for just that. So let me know…
