    DB (or anyone else who can help)

    Can you post closeup picture or instructions of how did you finish the 4 ends of the paracord.. I have been trying to get my head around it, but i just cant figure it out. The only way i know how to finish those is to cut them off, or make a regular knot..


    This is the part that i meant:

    Not even close. Multi-Stranded stopper knot.
    [​IMG]

    There is an easy way to do this knot.
    1. Crown the knot to the right, or left.
    2. As the strands hang, Skipping 1 bight in the same direction as the crown.
    3. Tuck the working strand through and up the middle of the crown.
    :luck:

    You sir, are correct.
    That is what I pictured, but was way off with the name.

    The end of that looks more like a what my grandfather called a diamond knot its really simple. It's a crown then bringing each past the cord in front of the next and up through the center. ill post pics later

    [img width=640 height=480]http://www.blackcatservices.net/pics/dia/diamond2.jpg[/img]
    And here is the first video I have ever made Link man was it hard tying a knot around a camera
    oh as I said in the video I'm just getting over a cold sorry for the heavy breathing. Knot tying really doesn't excite me THAT much :lolhammer:.

    Thank you all for the kind comments on the video. I sure hope to see some of you post some finished MWK's soon to the EDC here. I look forward to seeing some of the other works.

    Here's a Turks Head that has the same properties as a Mathew Walker Knot. Difference being that the base knot is not tucked away like a Mathew Walker. Instead the base knot simply just goes under and then over, then the next color of cord will bind it all together. Constructed with an even bight progression and an odd lead count.

    Killer eh? I am working on a 3rd color and some interweave patterns. But still a lot of work to on that yet.
