The story behind SGT KNOTS begins with Mike Shelley. After serving in the Marine Corps, Mike started a simple website selling custom paracord keychains and bracelets. At the time, paracord was the military’s best kept secret.
Mike was shocked to discover how difficult it was to find paracord online, but even more shocked when his products began flying off the shelves faster than he could create them. The need for accessible, high-quality paracord was obviously out there, so Mike “SGT KNOTS” Shelley set out to make it happen.
As SGT KNOTS grew and branched out to new products – ropes, twines, cord – Mike saw a darker side of the rope supply industry. Suppliers masquerading as manufacturers and manufacturers using deceptive production techniques to cheapen products. The Marine Corps holds honesty and integrity in high regard. Mike knew SGT KNOTS would need to bring these values to the market.
Through years of trial and error, Mike built close relationships with reliable, top-quality American and international manufacturers that couldn’t get into big-box retailers, but that plenty of DIYers, boat owners, farmers and ranchers, and businesses wanted. An online marketplace was the obvious solution.
From humble beginnings, SGT KNOTS has grown into a global depot with a steady stream of products shipping from around the world. SGT KNOTS utilizes both international and USA-based factories to manufacture the highest quality products available and bring them to market at the best possible value.
SGT KNOTS is now the leading webstore for all things paracord, rope, twine, and more! Through their ever-growing network honest manufacturers, SGT KNOTS can source any order, from small personal use supplies to custom bulk savings packages.
