    How is the headhunter knot different from the Turkshead?

    I put a new lanyard on my Leatherman Juice Xe6 with Hachetjack inspired bead work. I think it looks great :) [​IMG]

    The 'Headhunter knot', along with 'Gaucho' knots, 'Pineapple' knots, 'Herringbone', 'Fan', 'Ring', 'Casa', and 'Checkered' knots... are all variations of turks head knots. A basic turks head knot is tied first, different starting knots for different variations, then another sequence of overs/unders worked through that first knot creates the patterns that they get their names from. Examples. Hope that helps. :)

    I like to keep it simple, mainly because I have not taken the time to actually learn how to tie some of the awesome lanyards on this post. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of the cool knots and lanyards on this page. This is my simple EDC lanyard. Really cheap to make and handy!

    This paracord lanyard was made from trying the #2 Knot Challenge by Brian on KHWW.net, with the diagram for the knot coming from an Argentine knot book. I added a safety break-away and split ring for ID lanyard use or keychain carry. The first challenge also has a nice looking knot to try. :)

    Stormdrame, how about that 1st challenge a few times over to make a bracelet? Just thought it looked like it would lay flat and look rather nice :)

    Yep, that would probably work, tied one after another, like these carrick bend/Josephine knots, or maybe spaced out with other knot work in between like these Chinese lanyard knots... :)

    I didn't have any sleep and thought about making a lanyard with a loop for my Sportsman.But I remembered I ran out of cord.Then I saw a pair of old headphones and it hit me-I had alot of headphones that were damaged or with bad quality sound.The result ?

    I went a little bit overboard with the lighter on the black side to fuse the ends but it's acceptable for a first try with such a "material" and it is functional so I'll keep it.
