I had a Custom request for a Three Color Monkey Fist Key chain with a 1 1/4 Inch bearing and a Solid Brass Ring instead of a Split Ring. The monkey fist part took a bit longer than normal to finish. the Cord slides to the side a lot so it must be adjusted Several times.
I get requests for Custom work from time to time, and getting requests for things I have never made before or things similar to what I make, can be very Challenging. Usually it is a request for a different color combination than what is offered, or a different length of something that is offered. As time goes on I try to come up with different things myself.
The Monkey Fist is the first somewhat difficult Knot I ever attempted, now I can make one for a Key chain with a 1 Inch bearing in just minutes. It is funny how making one with a 1 1/4 inch bearing is literally a different beast. But with Custom Work, adjusting to new things is the Fun Part.
The worst part is Hoping the Customer is satisfied with the finished Product.
So I like to put pictures out there of the different kinds of Custom Work I do make, to see how people react to them. some of them I will never make again, but others I might make one here and there or really make o lot of them. You never Know.
