    This is my favorite lanyard, the Chris Reeve coil knot.
    Easy to do if you try it a couple of times (simple).
    Something to grab hold of especially with a "deep" carry folder (just have to grab the coil & not the knife).

    The top two are vintage CRKT fixed blades that have proven their worth over the years...
    I tied the lanyards on both those.

    The bottom two lanyards were tied by a guy in Michigan.
    $5/ea. (20 years ago).
    I bought 4- "square knot" tied lanyards.
    The guy had some skill!

    Those bottom two remind me of the lanyards we used to make in boy scout camp. I recently got my first Sebenza and it is so neatly tied . I'm going to try to reproduce it for some of my other folders. I love drop points. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing. That knot is very similar to how I tie fishing hooks/lures to the line except not as many coils. I never thought of using it as a lanyard loop.

    Have you ever tried the Palomar knot for fishing?

    Simple, quick & extremely strong.

    It may not be well suited to VERY LARGE lures, but it is possible.

    I mainly use Ultralight tackle for Smallmouth/trout in current now a days, but over the years Ive come to prefer the Palomar over any other knot (even when I used to fish for Largemouth bass & Blue Catfish).

    You got me FIRED UP for fishing now!
    CANT WAIT for warmer weather!

    You ever make these for fishing?
    Handy dandy for swapping lures/hooks or cutting/trimming fishing line, ect.
    You can use the nail file for sharpening fish hooks in a pinch.

    Just clip it to a front belt loop on your pants.

    I always make the "Carabiner" loop side bigger in case I need the carabiner for something else (like hanging a LED light, or combining 3 tarp tie offs to one point).
    We are lucky here in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, as Spring Turkey season, Small Mouth "Spawn" season, and Squirrel season all coincide @ the same time...
    Not to mention the best tasting Channel Catfish you can imagine (from some of the cleanest waters).
    So I basically "pack in" upstream & camp in the National Forest, & do all three at the same time.
    Fun cheap adventure you wont soon forget!
