Another Winner with a Twist.,
This review is from: The Friendly Swede Extra Wide 350 lb Dragon Tongue Premium Paracord Survival Bracelet and Adjustable Monkey Fist (Diameter:1.5 Inch) Paracord Keychain - Retail Packaging - Lifetime Warranty
The Friendly Swede products just ooze quality.
This set, the Extra Wide Dragon Tongue Premium Paracord Survival Bracelet and Adjustable Monkey Fist, is no exception.
The Paracord Survival Bracelet has over 13foot of paracord wound within it.
To gain access to the cord is simple.
The release of the cord is simple locate the glued ends twist the bottom hard and unravel- simple and big enough to unravel with frozen, numb fingers.
As I have said before in other reviews, the para cord is top quality and extends to just over 13feet and a half feet in old money so the uses for it in an emergency are endless- holding in place an emergency shelter with plastic, binding a broken limb to wood etc etc.
or even mild bondage!**

(For the technophiles the break weight is rated as 350lb but it is in fact greater than 550lb.)
I must admit though that the main attraction for me was the monkey fist because I already possess a couple of the bracelets.
I need to explain what a monkey fist is.
It is a ball of paracord that has a reassuring heavy feel to it.
The reason for this `feel' is that at its heart it has a 1inch diameter iron ball that weighs in at 1.9 ounces. This is, like Goldilocks, just right not too light not too heavy.
The ball has a tactile feel that is wonderful. You hold the `fist' and find yourself enjoying the feel as you pass it from hand to hand. This was not just me if you pass it to a friend to examine you may have a hard time getting it back!
It has a keyring
Now I have to be careful here.
If we lived in a lawless country other than Britain then this would be my explanation.
The monkey fist is designed to be a weapon of defence. I think I need to repeat that.
The monkey fist is designed to be a weapon of defence.
It is designed to be used to hit someone across the temples. It packs a hefty blow that will stun anyone that attacks you. I would suggest that it is a good defence item for a woman. It is light to carry but when swung the force is multiplied tenfold. It will give you a chance to escape your attacker by running from them as you stun them.
I was provided with my set to review but I must admit the Friendly Swede's products are turning into a mild addictive pleasure.
