    This is the "short" lanyard for my FF-3 that I carry attached to the front belt loop to front jean's pocket.


    B@rt, your "Iron Maiden" lanyards look terrific!

    Here's my version of the Double Twist.

    Hi ghostrider,

    Your creations are awesome ...


    how does this work, the double twist? Are the "arms"
    single parts knoted together or is the whole thing from
    two strands?

    Cheers

    Thanks Ralf,
    This one is done from two strands done together. It was somewhat tricky, to say the least. I have in the past, done the arms first and then knoted them together. Both cases only involved two strands. The one I just posted was different because of two colors involved.

    Thanks! Got some from Home Despot ( ). Prices there are sometimes just awful.

    Aside:
    BTW never buy epoxy from Home Depot; theirs sucks. It never sets right and it stays tacky and slimy and smelly. DevCon works way better and in fact incredibly well and it comes in separate tubes if you prefer that, which I really really do. Super Glue brand epoxies are crap in my experience.

    Is there any good way to conceal cut ends of paracord inside a small (don't want a bulky knot) knot or along the length of a lanyard or anything? The plastic end terminators are a little awkward to find a good location for if you have a clip on one end. I'm working on configurations now. Any advice appreciated.

    Here's my skull knocker lanyard. There's a 5/8" chrome steel ball bearing inside the monkey fist to give it a little more weight than the usual marbles I use.

    Here’s a Corkscrew Stitch, With two Three-Strand Braids, and a Knife Lanyard knot.


    Here’s two more JFBF’s done in desert camo. One Square Stitch, and one Round Stitch.


    We'll try this again since I know at least one person is having trouble seeing this.

    ghostrider,

    You have great skill. I'm always impressed to see your next creation.

    I'm still dumbfounded by your 1" diameter steel ball berring monkey fist lanyard.

    Jeez, you could surely knock someone out with that thing.

    Thanks Dan.

    IIRC, someone else on this thread also used a 1" diameter BB for a Monkey's Fist, but with a different application. The JFBF wasn't even my idea. Credit for that one goes to Gander_Man.

    Lots of interesting lanyards made by those here. Simply awesome!

    Just wanted to say that GhostRider makes some incredible fobs/lanyards, and have to say that 4 of his fine pieces are in my possession! Outstanding I say!

    Awesome work by everyone. Could I ask for two minor pieces of advice?

    -First, when I try to melt the ends of light colored paracord, I'm getting black globules of melted cord instead of just a colored melted blob. Am I using too high a heat from my lighter...maybe need a candle flame or something a little cooler?

    -Second, I LOVE the bracelets, however can't find instruction for attaching both ends...the only instructions seem to assume a loose end tied into a knot. I'd like to be able to do something like the watch band (one end attached to the watch, the other to a clasp), but can't see where/how the paracord is attached to its own end. Can anyone provide insight?

    Thank you for all the great pictures and inspiration!

    Try experimenting with how close you get to the flame. There is a point where it will melt the nylon, but not turn it black. A hot knife attachment on a soldering iron will make very clean ends also. I use a Bic lighter, or a butane Zippo that I have.

    Just finished this 'skull knocker' lanyard in forest green and neon orange, with a 3/4" chrome steel ball bearing inside the monkey fist, and a Schmuckatelli pewter skull.

    I know these arent exactly lanyards because they can't attach to anything but I didnt want them to be lanyards. I just like making them. Here are the most recent ones I made.



    From left to right: circle stitch, square stitch, triangle stitch, circle stitch over a circle stitch, square stitch over a square stitch, twist stitch, corckscrew stitch, and im not sure what the last one is called but it looks cool.









    Here is a picture of the last one from the top, sorry its really blurry.
    My small collection: Surefire 8ax, Orb Raw, Costco 10 million and 15 million, Streamlight Ultrastinger, and the Exolion
