Smithy cord is 6mm 12-strand braided polyester rope. Pioneered by Charlie Cushing of Lanternsmith, this special version of MFP feels great and is very durable. It is supple and has better abrasion and UV resistance than Nylon and MFP ropes used in many other props. It won't shrink, and has higher breaking strength. Perfect for poi, darts, puppyhammers and other tethered props!
It can be cut with scissors - you will need to melt the ends to prevent fray.
