I make a few self defense items with monkey fists. This is one variation I make with a king cobra stitch. This one happens to be three colors of paracord. I used desert tan, coyote brown and OD green. This can be worn as a bracelet and used as a flail in a sekf defense situation.
lanyard knot was used to finish the end. then one pass with another color for the cobra stitch and another for the king cobra stitch.
