Today Is 2 for 1 Bonus Day, You Get Medicine Bottle #28 And A Can Of Lubricant With Knotted Grip


Medicine Bottle #28 with a Headhunter knot and Turk's Heads -- a spray can with a Turk's Head of its own.

Medicine Bottle #28 with a Headhunter knot and Turk's Heads -- a spray can with a Turk's Head of its own.

These two items are in one picture because they sit together on the shelf. After their long association it seemed a shame to split them up.

Starting off with the medicine bottle, the knots used are:

The top knot is a Headhunter knot of 2 passes, doubled in black paracord.
Just below that is an experimental knot that I will never repeat. It is a 3 Lead X 11 Bight Turk’s Head. I tried for a different look by doubling only one of the passes. I had seen a braid in a book which looked nice with the unbalanced weave. Somehow it just doesn’t make it as a Turk’s Head. Probably just habit of eye and mind, but it looks unfinished. This is true even when I put the bottle next to the picture in the book — the braid looks OK — the Turk’s Head looks like somebody walked off the job.

The bottom knot on this bottle is a is a 7 Lead X 6 Bight Turk’s Head, doubled in white paracord. Over this is one of the E-Z Grip Turk’s Head knots with the widely spaced weave, done in black paracord. This knot is also a 7 Lead X 6 Bight knot — it is tied with a single strand held to a widely spaced lattice. This combination of stacked Turk’s Heads with the top one widely spaced makes an excellent hand grip.

The can of lubricant got a Turk’s Head of its own. This knot is of 8 Leads X 7 Bights, doubled in white paracord.

Thank you for dropping by my site. Come back again, I’ll try to make it worth your time:
