Rope Cord Supplies Review.

Basically in this video you will be staring at a box and watching me open it. For most viewers you will want to slash your wrists after about a minute ? However, for those of you that are interested in obtaining “Belfast Cord” quality then this is the video to watch. In the box is some of the finest rope that I have ever had the privilege to handle! For those of you that do traditional knotting, then this is the rope that you really do want to use. All the cords are natural ranging from cotton to good old polished hemp. With this rope you will be able to make beautiful crafted knots such as the Turks Head or Star Knot.

Can You Still get Belfast Cord?

I very much doubt that you will be able to get hold of Belfast Cord, but you will find that the cordage that Mikko Snellman produces certainly matches the quality of Belfast Cordage. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy using Mikko Snellman’s cordage!!

  1. I need to order a spool or two of the Belfast Cord size 8 for my father for Christmas. Old US sailor and paracord is not to his liking. For the life of me I cannot find where to buy it. Thanks so much for your help.

    • Hello Albert. many thanks for leaving a comment. I am afraid that you would have to approach the suppliers direct. Which country are you in, as I can then direct you to a supplier closest to you?

      Regards, John
