Hard day at the office?
A 3 lead 5 bight turks head with a nickel sized compass inside it. The strands from the turks head are doubled and then tied into a snake knot on a clip to attach to my keys.
This is a spike that was the first kill of a friend. He asked me to make this so he could put it on a gun sling.
A Turks head tied over an antler from a deer and a lanyard. The lanyard has two lanyard knots (under the TH knot) 4 Celtic button knots and a Solomon bar to make it adjustable.
A cobra bracelet and a king cobra key fob.
This bracelet was made using ABOK #523 for the body, ABOK #545 for the button and ABOK #1031 loop knot for the button hole.
This is a Rattle Snake Key Fob. Really it's just a heaving line (ABOK #541)
Tom Caddy: The loop can be made into a larks head to tie the feet of a turkey and throw it over your shoulder for carry. Expanded the one posted on pg. 29 of the FEB 2011 issue of Field and Stream.
More fun with the ladder rack knot.
This was an exercise in my patience as well as the 4 strand Mathew Walker knot. I like the way the MW knot turned out but the way the man rope knot was finished looks sloppy to me and was the test in my patience.
The compass is held in by glue and the covering knot.
This is a key fob that houses a compass.
Starts out as a 4 strand MWK then some crowns and ending with a manrope knot covered by the 4L 7B THK.

4 strand Double Matthew Walker knot and then about 4 crowns. Another MWK was tied OVER the crowns and finally finishes with a crown sinnet.
