Yet Another Lamb’s Wool Duster With A Hand Grip Improved By Turk’s Head Knots

This is another of the lamb’s wool dusters that we bought about 10 years ago. It has seen hard use,and the handle is starting to show some age — time to cut it off and do a new one. This sacrifice to the Gods Of The Knots should please them. Now if I could just find my woad and a chicken.

The knots on this handle are:

The long white knot is a Turk’s Head knot of 23 Leads X 2 Bights, doubled in white paracord.

The green knot that fits in the hollow of your hand, and makes it much better, is a Turk’s Head of 5 Leads X 4 Bights. It is doubled and tied in paracord. There is a mouse under it to fill out the shape — a Spanish Ring knot, if I remember correctly.

Because the handle is a straight dowel, I am going to mouse it out more this time. The one linked to above had a turned handle, shaped to fit the average hand. This made it more comfortable to use. After I have had the moon light ceremony and sacrificed these knots I will post the new ones. Between now and then I am open to suggestions — what would you like to see, which knots, anything special?

Thank you for dropping by the Temple Of Knots. Sorry you missed the rites; happy you get to view the results. See you again:
