More green fingers...


The excess green dye has now taken up residence among my fingernails... This is a round sinnet fob using green 1.4mm trot line, with a wall knot(completion stitch), then I made a monkey's fist with each of the four strands with an airsoft bb for the core of each. Shown attached to a SAK Tinker.

That is pretty neat...and my favorite pocket knife to boot. I am never without mine, but it doesn't have the nifty fob.

That's awesome! How are "monkey's fists" made?

There are many tutorials online for making a Monkey's Fist. They don't really help with the 'tightening up' of the fist though, and that's where a lot of folks get lost.

I put up a video tutorial for it on youtube last year that has helped a few folks figure it out.
