Olive drab paracord sheath over a rubber coiled lanyard with split rings and a swivel clip. I had tried this last year without success in working the cord over the coil, but seeing some online pics of other guys getting it done, I gave it another try... Using an inner strand to pull the coil thru the paracord really made it workable.

Lots of nice work there Storm, I enjoy weaving/braiding also but I would have to say I'm at about 2 on the 10 scale you sit atop.  :thumbup:

I really like that one. Do you have a price for making more? Perhaps in olive drab, and another in rescue orange? :)

Thanks guys, I just make 'em as a hobby and don't sell them, but there are a couple of guys on EDC Forums that were making them to sell, greenLED is one of them.

My apologies if this was posted already but after finally learning the hard way to tie a Monkey's Fist knot I found this link with a short video that makes it easy for all to accomplish this task.
 
I keep making the jigs which is quite simple and then giving them away. Just a wire type coat hanger or any stiff wire will work.

You may need to scroll down a few to find the correct vid but easy to find.

Hope this brings a little monkey joy to some one..  :)

Here's some knot work I put on my ARC-P with 0.9mm braided nylon cord.  I did a 5 lead 4 bight Turk's Head knot, some half hitches(Chinese staircase), and another TH knot, all one continuous cord.

Storm, that must have taken forever - looks fantastic  8)

Bet if you did one in GITD cord it would be awesome too.

Thanks.  I've done a couple with GITD cord while trying to get the hang of the Turk's Head knots.   :D

Storm,


Every time I look at your work I am amazed at how beautiful everything turns out.

I keep thinking to myself I gotta learn how to do this stuff, but my time is really limited and all thumbs (10 of 'em) when it comes to this.

Here's a simple looking lanyard.  There's a doubled knife lanyard knot, a short loop on one end, long loop on the other, and the ends are hidden in the knot.  There's an  online tutorial  for it, posted by Bud Brewer, on the KHWW website.
