KNOT AND CORD SIZE COMPARISONS
King Cobra vs. Cobra
I get e-mailed all the time asking about the size difference between the King Cobra and standard Cobra knot bracelets. King Cobra bracelets are what could be called a true “man-bracelet’ so let’s just say the difference is a lot! Same with K9 collars. You wouldn’t put a King Cobra on a poodle named Fi-Fi! While working large K9s have no problem sporting a King Cobra Paracord Collar.
King Cobra Width: 1 3/8″ | Approx. 2 feet of cord per inch
Thickness: Approx. 5/8″
Standard Cobra Width: 3/4″ | Approx. 1 foot of cord per inch
Thickness: Approx. 3/8″
Keep in mind measurements can vary slightly based on cord lots. So that you can see just how much more hefty the King Cobra bracelet is compared to the regular Cobra knot bracelet, here are photos to get an idea of the difference. View our slideshow below for more comparison photos.
The King Cobra paracord bracelet is approximately twice the size of the standard Cobra knot bracelet. Check it out and ask me any questions you may have before you order to make sure the King Cobra is right for you. This is one serious paracord bracelet!
Paracord Paul’s Exclusive 275 Tactical Cord vs. 550 Paracord
275 Tactical Cord:
We manufacture this Mil Type 1 style cord to our specs with a 4 strand core and 16 strand cover delivering a whopping 275 pound test break. We call it 275 Tactical Cord and it’s some tough stuff.
All of my products are made in the U.S.A. with mil-spec MIL-C-5040H type III requirement cord and have a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds (550 cord). My paracord comes from the same U.S. factory that is a government contractor to supply the military, so quality is assured.

275 is a lower profile cord that still offers the utility and versatility of 550.[img src=https://www.paracordpaul.com/wp-content/flagallery/king-cobra-vs-standard-cobra/thumbs/thumbs_king-vs-standard-cobra-compare-bracelets.jpg]King Cobra and Standard Cobra Comparison
