lanyards-Show em if you got em

   If you tie paracord lanyards, you have long ago exhausted your supply of things to attach them to. Now you are stuck with an ever growing supply of extra lanyards that you hoard while continuing to make more. To legitimize, sadly only in your own mind most likely, your continuing obsession with lanyards and knots, post a few pics of what you made lately in this thread. Your work is not in vain. Here are a few I made lately.

My newest ones that I just learned from TIAT @ Fusion knots. The Corkscrew Crown Sinnet. Dont examine the large one too closely because I screwed up a stitch in there. I really like this style.

I just bought some paracord today in the color called Gecko, its neon green, yellow, blue, and black...

Maybe the color isnt for everyone its not as nice as an OD or Desert Tan for everyday use, but I like it...

I do sell and trade my work . I have been selling enough to pay for my paracord , it's good to have a hobby that pays for itself .

A lot of the repeat customers I have order custom pieces , they tell or show me what they want , and I make it happen .

Here is a custom piece I did a while back tied with one strand .

What I do

I should mention that these monkeyfists are tied around a 3/4 " ball bearing , so they are heavy .

Whenever someone picks one up , they swing it against their hand and say something like  " damn , you could do some damage with this !"

So as far as being a lanyard ... I don't know ...

But they are cool . Here is another custom piece .

You are the master Jack. I like how all your stitches are so uniform, they look better than the YouTube guys look.

Well TIAT is doing a demo , so his stiches are loose . Stormdrane , however is positively anal about clean work .

Tying a knot is only half the job , dressing the knot is the other ...

Yes that will be nice......you should really  think of a knot for us blf'ers, that is exclusive just to you.

Yeah , I like that idea ! One of the neatest things about knotting is the endless variety of knots and combinations of them that you can utilize for different projects .

alfreddajero , you want a smaller monkeyfist for a work lanyard . That makes perfect sense .

I also make these turkshead lanyards which do not contain any metal balls . They are solid paracord and therefore very light .

They are and I do except for the price. I can get the same exact ones on ebay much cheaper.  I really like the watch band. Extremely comfortable!

Here is a lanyard that doesn't work on all lights, for cosmetic reasons IMO, but is extremely practical. You can use it as a wrist lanyard or on one or two fingers for a secure grip that won't fall out of your hand.
