LED Flashlight #04 Covered In Turk’s Head Variants



This is the fourth and last in this collection of LED flashlights covered in assorted knots. This one was also tied with my use in mind. The stacked Spanish Ring knots on the lens end of the tube adds an inch to the diameter. This fits my hands much better.

Starting from the right end of the tube the knots are:

A pair of stacked Spanish Ring knots tied in paracord then doubled. They are stacked because one just didn’t add enough thickness.

A single strand of paracord to carry the button knot which acts as a locater / grip enhancer.

A 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head knot, doubled.

A 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head knot tied in white paracord with a green pineapple interweave. The white improves your chance of finding it in dim light.

The last knot capping the other end is another Spanish Ring knot. I crowded the end cap to the point that it is non-removable unless you cut this knot off. This is an admitted sacrifice of function to form, something I usually try to avoid. I tell myself this is OK because of the presumed life of batteries in an LED flashlight; in reality I just didn’t want to cut it off after working it tight.

This is what is called an acceptable excuse in sales, you just don’t want to buy so you come up with something the other guy will accept as valid. It may or may not be the real reason but is “acceptable” to both parties, face saved all around.

Thank you for stopping by my site. Now all I have to do is find something else worthy of your download time for the next post. Come back and see it.
