cord material for knife lanyards would be the good old Paracord
, usually the average 550 Type III Nylon
, with 4 mm diameter and 7 inner strands. You could easily say that 99% of all lanyards either are or will be made with this one.
That said, for a LBK like a D'Fly
or a LadyBug
I like way better to use 425 Paracord Type II Nylon
, with 3 mm diameter and 3 inner strands, being just a little sleek appeals better for such small knives while still giving you good enough purchase and very high tensile strength.
, my all time most used ones are the Knife Lanyard knot
and the Matthew Walker knot
, both are great secure handsome and fun knots to tie.
And I'm not particularly a beads fan, but when I use them the key word is LightWeight
, there's nothing more annoying that a heavy bead on a lanyard. Actually, would suggest to take a look at Atwood's Mini Five Flutes
, really well made awesome little beads.
