The Ashoka Chakra Knot is another fusion knot, created via a combination of techniques shown in my book (Decorative Fusion Knots) and others shown here, on my YouTube channel. Similar in appearance to one of the 33 edicts depicted on the pillars of King Ashoka (an ancient emperor from India); my hope is that this knot will help round out your knowledge of fusion knots and, more generally, symbolic sacred knots. Coming soon to Tying It All Together.
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The brainchild of Philip Slattery, "Slatt's Rescue Belt" is a clever application of a standard crochet. More popularly seen expanded and used as the means to create a rope doormat or scarf, the rescue belt is a slick way to create a shoulder strap, which can easily be undone to allow use of the rope that created it.

This said, the technique illustrate how little it takes to make a big difference in appearance. Take note, there are even more variations of this tie I've yet to show. So for now, have fun with this tie, knowing there's far more to come!

But tying a Bow Knot can take an average of two seconds to accomplish, and even the Tom Fool's Knot takes a whopping second to complete. I say you have better things to do with your time. In turn, I present a method of cinching your shoes that takes 0.5 seconds. That's right…you heard me correctly. Only 0.5 Seconds!
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X As a test to myself and a realization for others, I decided to see if/demonstrate I can produce a knot instruction video with one eye. As the following video shows, we (you and I) have nothing to worry about. The knot presented, the "Double Woven Globe Knot", is a response to those seeking a larger globe knot, while still using the TIAT globe knot tying method to create the piece.
Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/Paracord-Fusion-Ties-Volume-Bundles/dp/098555780X The Blaze Bar is yet another variation on the double stranded woven bars I've been presenting over the past two years. Taking on a finished look like no other tie to date, the Blaze Bar makes a sturdy strap or bracelet. This said, the technique for making the bar is subtle, and looks similar to other techniques previously shown. So don't rush through this one. Take your time and watch each step carefully. Doing so will make sure you fully understand the tie.
