    Just a little monkey fist I made to throw in the park with my girlfriend. I put some cobra knotting near the fist to keep it from loosening and to add some colour so we don't hit each other. Then added the Celtic knot flyers because well... I could. They look cool flying in the air. It's a 1inch ball bearing covered in a five strand fist. I made a handle out of the cobra pattern then overlapped to make ridges for each of the fingers. [​IMG]

    Nice! I've been meaning to get a couple of the 1 inch ball bearings. I want to make a monkey fist with a barnacle knot for a two finger handle.

    Yeah the barnacle knot looks pretty mean. We're you thinking of overlapping or keeping it a single pass?

    And thanks for the comment! :)

    So you throw these? Like the banned yard game "Lawn Darts"? Sounds dangerous.
