That's cool. I like the look of that snake knot. I'll bet it wast tedious to keep the colors lined up all the way to the end. Great work!
Thank you! Not tedious at all, regarding lining up colors....the snake knot is a series of knots that nest on one another. You just have to get it tight to look good.....If anything was tedious, it was tying EACH knot itself.....I think there are about 180 knots in this one. Once I get the feeling back in my fingers, I may do another - lol!That's cool. I like the look of that snake knot. I'll bet it wast tedious to keep the colors lined up all the way to the end. Great work!
Is that a 1" steel ball? I make my keychain monkey fists using the 5/8" steel ball.Just finished this one for my Mom. It's her Mother's Day gift. She has used a small strap f leather attached to her keys, and left hanging out of her purse to make key retrieval easier. It's time to update and upgrade her method. View attachment 466
Oh ok. I made a 6 inch long monkey fist keychain a couple months ago for my mom using a 5/8 inch steel ball. I showed her the one I had on my keys then I demonstrated it on a nearby box and I told her I will make her one in her choice of two colors.
This is mines. I used the purple because it was some scrap from a belt I made my daughter. The one I made for my mom looks exactly alike. The only difference is the colors which hers is black and red.
You just became a lethal weapon and have been put on Obama's list. :melikey:Made one for my girlfriend with a 5/8" steel ball. Over all about 10" View attachment 477

Excellent! That snake knot is super tight (literally), the amount of time you must have spent shows in it's quality. Excellent job!I just finished up this monkey fist tonight....It's 42" long from end to end, and has a 1" steel ball. I used exactly 50ft of cord for this one. Weave is a continuous snake knot with a small cobra weave at the end.
Just curious as to what you would price this at. Any input would be great! Thx!
