Cool Glow Stuff!

I just received some glow-in-the-dark cord from "Cool Glow Stuff!". I bought the 1/16" and 3/32" diameter cords, since those sizes should braid well with paracord. The other glow cord I've used is from TAD Gear, shown on the right. The two lanyards I made on the left are made with the Cool Glow Stuff! cord and the one on the right is maroon paracord and TAD Gear glow cord.

How do you make the lanyard attached to the SAK?

It's made the same as the others shown in the post. The round sinnet is tied around the loop section. See the Feb 18, 2007 post for a couple of photos showing how to start it.

Hi Stormdrane,

May I know what's the knife in your pic with the black handle?

Also, regarding the monkey fist with ring, did you put any ballbearing inside? What's the size of the ball bearing you used?

Appreciate your enlightenment.
Thanks!

Calvin,

The black knife is a K55 Mercator.

I used a 1/2" diameter sized marble for the core of the monkey's fist, but a ball bearing, wooden ball, cork, etc... will work just as well.
