Australian Cordage Supplies – Quality Cordage Australia — 8 Comments

  1. Hi Johnny,
    Inspiring to see you receive and unbox this package from Australia. I live in Silicon Valley, California, and I have not encountered any problems in getting cordage. I buy it at the local hardware store (Orchard Supply Hardware – it’s a chain) by the foot. They have it in various diameters and colours, right next to the chain.
    Keep up the good work – your efforts are appreciated.

    • Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I certainly hope that other US visitors to this blog, actually read this comment, as they may find this useful also. I do know that some people in the States order from Mikko (I wonder if that is cordage or his kits?) Then I believe that a guy called Martin Combs also in the States does rope supplies. I think one of the biggest problems is that you can not touch before you buy, so people are wary of making a purchase. This is one of the reasons that I like to do a video review on certain products, so that people can buy with a bit more confidence. Maybe someone in the States will send me some samples to review?

      • That sounds right. I have bought cordage from both Mikko and Martin. Mikko’s, as you know, is amazing, but there’s the shipping, and Mikko gets backed up with orders (as well he should!) I have bought cordage, kits and tools from Mikko, and they are some of my prized possessions. My favorite cordage from Martin is the canoe twist, though I have also liked others I have bought from him. I also ordered a French marlinspike from Martin, which I love. I would be happy to send you samples of what few varieties of cordage I have bought from Martin; I think I may only have two. Feel free to share this info on your YouTube site. I really appreciate your videos. Thank you!

  2. Hi,I love what I see of the hardlain cordage and the variety of colors. Where in South Africa can I buy cordage?

    • I have had the following response to my question: “Stateline Braiding, Southern Ropes, and also Laaiplek Handelshuis. Southern have a factory shop that sells odd lengths too, btw… And I forgot about Rope World in Diep River. Try them first.”
