Sad Scout Tutorials – Impression Cordage from Pure Provides
What's up guys black Scout survival and today I'm going to be going over how to use natural materials to make cordage with and this is a very valuable survival skill you know it's borderline primitive survival but you know I think also modern survivalist should know how to do it as well just because cordage is valuable I mean you know if you go out.
In the woods and for any given amount of time and do some type of you know survival training bushcraft or something like that you're going to realize very quickly how much you need cordage it's one of those things that that you we just need is people we need it but you know most time I like you know 550 cord 550-pound strength like bank line you.
Know the intercourse of paracord is also cool you can split bank line but you know is this kind of natural quarters going to have that same breaking strength you know knowing I have 550 pounds but it's going to be very durable I mean you know you can see here this is something that I'm and that stuff is not breaking and this is a you know from a.
Palm leaf here some type of palm leaves and this is actually from tulip poplar bark here and I mean this is called the reverse wrap and it's going to make your quarters look just like rope like a small fine rope you know or bank line but if you're using some type of tulip poplar bark or some type of inner Canyon being layer of bark you want to keep.
That stuff wet while you're doing it and keeping it wet also just makes it more moisten and able to use but like I said this stuff is strong and like I said cordage is and bushcraft and survival very important thing very important to know how to do let's go ahead and go over the technique okay guys so first off you know when you're using some kind.
Of bark like this you're going to want it you know somewhat wet so just you know damp it up just to make it workable and then uh this is like I said this is tulip poplar bark you just want to kind of get it good and wet or damp I should say you don't want it really soaking just you know just kind of bring that out now what.
You're going to do is you're going to take you know one section you want to leave one side longer than the other when you start so something like that you know this is a very short piece but you know you may want something a lot longer than this if you can just leave one side long in another and take them pinch it and then just start take the.
Top side and twist away from you so roll it this way so roll it this way until it bunches up and then bring it down and bring the other piece up the underneath piece and then just twist away like this and then bring it towards you so you twist away twist away and then bring that one down and towards you so bring that one back this way so twist away and.
Then move it down and back towards you twist away from you and bring it back down towards you no see it's already starting to not up like wrote there so twist away and then twist down towards you twist away so basically every time you twist a single piece you twist it away from you and then when you get done twisting and holding it and pinching.
Every time you pinch yeah I mean you move up pinch up and then twist it toward towards you so the piece you just Swiss it goes down and then take the other next piece and twist away and bring it down and you can see I mean and you can you know crank out a lot of cordage in a very little bit of time and see you know.
So if you're sitting around the campfire at night you know you've uh in a survival situation you want to keep your mind occupied because boredom will you know stress you out and make things worse than what they are let's see you know move very fast so you can see they're very good a section of quarters there you know just a few.
Seconds maybe like a minute or so you got a good piece of cordage but she knows a little bit right when it lit now once you run out of this you're gonna need to add more if you need a long piece of course so let's go ahead and get into that okay guys so now you know you've worked through a good length of quarters there but let's say you need.
More or longer piece you know the reason why I told you to keep one side longer than the others because this is how you add more into it so what you're going to do as you can see where you've ran to right here you're going to take the new piece and just kind of add it in this section and start rolling you know rolling like you normally do you know.
Pinch that working section you're working and twist this away just like you normally would and then bring it down and twist a new section and bring it down and now what you're essentially doing is working in that new piece so you're going to twist away and bring it down twist away and bring it down twist away and bring it.
Down twist away and bring it down just keep working that piece in there and you know you can you know pretty much you know make any kind of length of cord as you want and that's a good thing to be able to do because I see a lot of people that teach how to do this they only teach you know how to make short section out show how to make additions.
To it now I just want to hurt and wrap this up and you see how quick I'm moving through this you know you keep practicing this you'll get fairly good at it and you'll notice that the cordage doesn't look any different there you can see that I mean it's just let's take one straight piece of cordage like like something you'd buy essentially so now.
You can see there's the end of the cordage and I'm just going to and wrap it because and show you that it doesn't affect the strength whatsoever if you want to start in about two inches you know you want about two inches to work it into to give it that strength so you can see my new quarter starts from all right there so that's about good two.
Inches two and a half inches that I've worked in there now I probably want to go ahead and add a new piece to this section here but you can see here even with that new stuff it's not going anywhere and that's some strong stuff but hopefully you know this will help you learn how to tie cordage on natural cordage I think this is essential skill.
