Looking good Jack. I like the lower left sand colored one.

I really like those type of knots, and the colors combination of the upper left lanyard is unusual and really nice.

Tally-Ho, you have great taste. Those are the ones I told Jack I liked too.

These turkheads lanyards are awesome !

I’m a rookie in this kind of stuff.
This is a short square knot lanyard at one of my keyrings, I started with a diamond knot and integrated this piece of metal (I don’t know the exact vacabulary).

Next one is my car key, I started with a hangman’s knot and ended the loose strand with a monkeyfist.
I really like it, because it is so easy to grab the key.

Do somebody know a good online tutorial (step-by-step) for a monkeyfist with a long loop, like shown in post #60 (the red and the green one, near the center) ?

Either way, depending on my mood. Sadly, it seems, right now I’ve been told I’m in the mood to do an oil change in Mrs. Cone’s truck. When that’s done, maybe her mood will change. Wink

The ' Endless ' monkeyfists are tied in the usual manner ( lots of online video tutorials available ) , then the free ends are melt-spliced together , sanded for a smooth profile , and woven back into the tie ...

We can dream… we can always dream.

Funny thing is, she just came in here and asked that I switch out the light fixture in the hallway with some new “funky” one she found somewhere. That’s like.,what, two things to do on my list. And on a holiday weekend, to boot.

I’m pretty sure I can parlay that into some kind of “bear mauling”.

Wait, you sand the splice? That’s awesome. Not only did have fun, but I just learned something! Thanks Jack.

I like them all, expect maybe the one in the middle that I like less due to the red-blue combination (just a matter of test).
The second from left has a tibetan monk look:

I don’t know the english word either, but it is used on (sailing) boats. It is a part of all “accastillage” (french) accessories.
In french it is a cosse-coeur (google search results)

BTW it is a great addition / idea.

How long are the snakes and how much Paracord do you use?

Light up the darkness.

In Europe we use the metric system and I think I made a mistake by the conversion. 1 foot = 30,48cm, 2× 14’ (inch?) = 2× 35,56cm. You made a 30cm snake with only 70cm paracord?

Light up the darkness.

To clarify it a bit further…

‘ means feet, and

“ means inches.

You would need about 4.3 meters of paracord in each color.

^ HAHA, you’re welcome, but you got lucky since we (scaru and I) were debating big issues elsewhere. We were happy to squeeze you in. And nice minis, Essexman.

I know its not ready yet, but I don’t know which knot to use as an end knot for the wrapping.

I tend to weave it into a monkeys fist of sorts. Not exactly easy but it looks nice. Failing that just a normal knot will also work.

I think that a knot at the end of the wrap might be too bulky , have you considered whipping the junction ?
