Paracord Fusion Ties - Volume 1, is compiled in as clear and concise a manner as the videos he produces. Beautiful works of art on each and every page, that will leave you counting the days until Volume 2!

If you're new to knot tying and/or paracord bracelets, this book is a MUST HAVE!

I only began making paracord bracelets as a hobby a few months ago. Once I watched J.D.'s instructional, "Tying It All Together" videos, I was hooked!

If you aren't new to knot tying and/or paracord bracelets and you've known about J.D. Lenzen for awhile, this book is also a MUST HAVE!

Everyone who benefits from his free and selfless instruction should afford him the simple benefit of our support in turn! SO, BUY THE BOOK!

J.D. never disappoints, only inspires!!!!

I purchased this for my 12 year old son who is a Boy Scout and into knot tying. He was able to make a 3-lead 4-bight Turk's Head (pg. 10-12) quite easily. Of course he will need to keep practicing to get them perfectly round like the book, but I must say his first attempt at it looked pretty good. This book is perfect for beginners because the author takes you step-by-step through each project using large colored photos with written directions directly below each step. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in knot tying who wants to make useful items to use or give as gifts.

Paracord Fusion Ties
Volume 1 - Straps, Slip Knots, Falls, Bars & Bundles
by J.D. Lenzen of
Tying It All Together ([...])

Well, today the mailman delivered my cold weather keep warm and out of trouble kit for Winter, 2012 - 2013. JD's "Paracord Fusion Ties - Volume 1".

Yes, with less than $100 worth of #450 or #550 paracord, a pair of sharp scissors, a ruler and a cigarette lighter or match I can keep busy all winter long reproducing JD's wonderfully creative straps, slip knots, falls, bars & bundles, tying from just after breakfast until well after dinner every day on which the weather is inclement. No way I can get myself into too much trouble with that, is there? (Sorry, Hon, please keep my dinner hot until I finish this one; I will eat it after... yeah, I know it will probably be cold by then... I will find it where?)

With collaboration from David "Stormdrane" Hopper (owner of Stormdrane.blogspot.com, and one of the world's finest paracord artisans) JD shot more than 800 professional quality images depicting, step-by-step, how to tie 35 beautiful pieces of artwork using paracord. These projects range from the very easy to the ridiculously simple. And with a little luck and snow on the ground, I should be able to complete Christmas tree ornaments, gift package decorations and even holiday gifts for family and friends, each for less than a dollar or two of paracord. Oh. And a few things I need or just plain want for myself. After all, I am a product of the "me" generation.

JD starts by talking a bit about the history, types and sources of paracord. There is a list of paracord vendors, although my favorite one is not on the list.

What a great book. Incredible step by step instructions for tying various knots to create many different items. Great for any level. Kids can easily follow the instructions.

I grew up with a mother who taught Macrame at a community school. Brought back great memories.

The inclusion of website addresses to get Paracord and supplies will be extremely helpful for people getting started.

I am Retired Army and have used Parachute Cord for over twenty years. I can't even begin to list all the various things I have used parachute cord for.

Enjoy the book and have fun. Check out his very helpful YouTube videos.

The books insructions were incredibly clear, and easy to follow, every knot was extremely detailed and I like how JD added a little info on the knot to go along with it, a very nice detail. This Is by far the best book for tying paracord specifically that I have found. I have noticed a minor inconsistency between the book and JD's youtube videos, for example there may be a different way to start a tie in the book and in the videos (KBK bar. I do not think that this is any major downside however, if anyhting it gives you MORE options for the same knot. Anyways, major props to JD for compliling this book. This book is DEFINITELY worth the money.

Before last August I probably didn't even know what 'paracord' was. I read an article in the newspaper that had a picture of the bracelet and story behind it. A couple of weeks later I started buying material. I can probably hold my own in a cobra knot contest now but realized I had to try other things. I think previously knitting and crocheting helped, but knew I needed other instruction. I researched the books available on Amazon.com and decided on "Paracord Fusion Ties" because it seemed to offer plenty for me to learn. I've been able to follow through enough that I've now made things using several different knots. My adult kids are thoroughly impressed and request different things. Following instructions in the book I can generally accommodate. There are some knots, including the "Monkey Fist", that I can't quite get the hang of, but I'll keep on trying. The beauty of it is you can always just rip it out and start all over again. My only drawback is that I get making things and want to try more, so I keep on buying materials, which can get a little costly over time. I don't want to sell what I do, so I just chalk the expense up to "hobby time." The illustrations and instructions in the book are very adequate. I'm happy to have it and happy I read that article in August.
