Default A simple way stop paracord from fraying

This is how I do it, I've never had a problem with it apart from sticking my fingers together when I wasn't careful! The video is self explanatory, but if you have any questions then ask away.

I should probably point out that this isn't my idea, I read it somewhere a few years back but it really is the best way to make a nice neat cut and to stop the cordage from fraying. That's what UKBF is all about, sharing info, knowledge and experience. I'm glad I had something worthwhile to share!

I think the phrase you should get adept at using is ' As far as i am aware this is my original idea' , this allows you some margin of plausible deniability , allowing you to bask in your peer's admiration and glory for the short term until you become found out. !!

If its good enough for the leaders of the modern world and Intelligence agencys , you should be ok.
