New style with monkey fist

This is the first time I have used the reflective cord in a monkey fist. Turned out real nice.

Larger monkey fist

This is one of my finer works; monkey fist uses a 1" ball bearing and and loose snake weave for the stitching and a nice hook at the end.

Adjustable key fob

The snake weave can move up and down on the core to make the fob look different. Cool feature I came upon more by accident. Really like it.

Double Carabiner Lanyard

nice lanyard that attaches to your belt loop very easily but stays on secure. Stitching is loose snakeweave which makes it very flexible. Key ring on the end can be removed and the loop can easily go in a knife hole.

Great Fob

Nice way to hook on to something and put your keys on the other end. About 7" long with the snake weave and lanyard knot.

orangeblack monkey fist

These are a pain to make but worth it in the end.

Larger monkey fist

This one uses a 3/4" ball bearing and is a little hefteir than the others but would make a great fob.

Halloween lanyards

Fun little guys using a double cobra weave with a facsimile of type 1 cord.

New skull lanyard

Nice sterling silver skull with movable jaw. Could be used for key fob or knife lanyard.

Two monkey fists

Using two colors in a monkey fist is always a challenge but making one where no ends show is also a little hard. Got an example of both here.

New style with emerson

Customer wanted the Emerson placed in between the two knots and with a glowpull on the end.

chinese emerson

Chinese staircase of grey using miltec1 on 550 cord with an Emerson skull hanging on the end. Like the classy look.

Chinese staircase and dual color monkey fist

The monkey fist has two colors which makes it very difficult to get it even followed by a chinese staircase which are fun to make with a Smuktelli skull and loop. This one is not for the restless to try!

Triple cobra

Using miltec1 cord in a darkgreen camo and three passes for the cobra stitching with a lanyard knot and half-hitch at the bottom rounds this one out nicely. Not sure how many feet I used.

Burgundy and tan lanyard

Really like this color combo of burgundy and desert tan with the tadgear skull at the end.

Triple duty lanyard

Cool lanyard that has a lot of capabilities. Kubotan, firestarter, survival lanyard, key lanyard or knife lanyard. Total length is about 6 inches including loop.

Monday, June 4, 2007


Good comparison of bracelets of the same size; from top to bottom; normal with core, half-hitch, king cobra without core and king cobra with core.

Neck Lanyard

Neck lanyard in the center is a new style I have made with the simple three braid stitch using brass wire to adhere eveything together at the bottom and a hangman's noose knot with clip.

Suspended skull

Really like this one made for a very special person. Skulls eyes glow as well as using reflective black cord.

Yellow&black monkey fist

Nice yellow and black one for a fireman.

Monkey fist

Nice monkey fist with 1/2" ball bearing in the core and reflective black cord.

Half-hitch bracelet

Nice soft weave that fits the arm well.

Saturday, April 21, 2007

Toxic all the way

Beautiful green clip and cobra weave with key ring on the end. Measures 7" in length.

Glow bead lanyard

Simple lanyard but very effective with glow beads intermixed in a cobra weave.

Double gunner lanyard

Nice combo of a butterfly stitch and snake stitch for this knife lanyard.

No drop knife lanyard

Have you ever been fishing or somewhere and dropped your knife. Won't happen with this outfit. Knife and sheath are not included of course but any neck knife would work. There is one loop in the webbing for the carabiner(included) and two loops on the other end of the webbing; one to hook on to the kydex sheath and one to hook on to the knife itself. You can see this in the picture with the lanyard on edge. I can make these in other colors. A small piece of lanyard is provided to tie from the web loop to the kydex sheath. Webbing is all sewed well so nothing will come loose. An added feature on this lanyard is that I used stretch cord from the second web loop to the knife. That give you a little more flexibility to use your knife. All-in-all I think this one is a real winner. I can see it attached to a fisherman's vest, tactical vest, pack, belt, etc.

Button,snake, glowpull lanyard

This is a fun one with a chinese button knot, then snake weave followed by the glow pull.

Sunday, April 1, 2007

Chinese butterfly lanyard

This one uses a chinese butterfly knot on the end with a snake twist and loop.

Saturday, March 31, 2007

Snake glow pull

Nice glow pull with the snake weave pattern. Like the wave the weave "snakes" around the lanyard.

Slip-knot monkey fist

This shows the handman's knot again the stitching but it can be slid up the loop. Fun and convenient lanyard to make.

Sunday, March 18, 2007

Bumblebee key fob

This is a very cool looooong key fob. Around 7 inches of stiching with king cobra lacing.

Cross for my wife

It is our wedding anniversary Friday so thought I would make a cross like Stormdrane showed on his site for my wife. Thanks David :)

Underhand beauty

Really like this one. Underhand loop stitching around a ring.

Circle with light reflected

The circle lanyard pictured below but with a flash showing the refection. Pretty cool cord.

3 different lanyards for knives

These three are all for the same customer. All are different from the normal in some way if you take a close look.

Continuous ring lanyard

These are really good looking and could be used as key fobs or whatever purpose you wish. Here this one is on a Strider GB.

Monday, February 19, 2007


This one started out different than it ended up; has two blood knots at the bottom with a button knot in the middle with some cobra stitching at the top with the loop. Would be useful to put keys on the loops at the bottom with key rings or what ever you want to attach. The interesting part of this is that the button knot stays in the center whether you have weight on the loops or not. Pretty different. The cord has a reflective tracer in it as well.

Good luck key fob

Great to keep your keys separate and nice to look at. Rings can be taken off or on. The knot is called a good luck knot. Measures about 8" total.

Alternate ring key fob(smaller)

Measures about 5" in length and would be great for a key fob. Ring is smaller than previous one with about 1 3/8" outside diameter.

Monday, February 12, 2007

New alternate ring hitch

This one is quite large measuring 2 inches in diameter and about 7 inches total length. Really neat design and quite attractive.

Ringer with glowpull

This is a very cool lanyard a customer came up with himself and I just made it. Glow pull at the end, then a ring, metal skull, chinese button knot and then the loop. Really like this one and need to make one for my knife too :)

Doubleringer for usn knife

This one is just plain cool with two rings and three skulls made for the ZT USN knife. A person has an easy grab with the two rings no matter what he does to pull knife out of pocket. Chinese button knot on top as well.

Saturday, January 20, 2007

Glow pull with a twist

This measures about 6" and uses a half-twist cobra stitch and a glow pull at the end.

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

double ringer

Two rings, three skulls and a chinese button knot at the loop. Pretty fun to make but hard on the fingers keeping things tight on the rings.

Monday, January 8, 2007


These are really different but simple in theory. Can use them for a knife lanyard, pull, keyring, etc. Call them ringers since they are laced around a keyring.

Thursday, January 4, 2007

Double loop fob

This is a variation of what Colby does with his sixpack but has two loops at the top with a key ring and is larger. About 6 3/4" long.

New king cobras without the core.

Notice the one underneath on how wide it is to the other two which have the core out.
