    A Monkey Fist is a ball bearing with para-cord tied around it. They are used for key chains. The cord can also be wrapped around your wrist.

    Thanks man, I checked out your guys web site. It looks really good and is easy to navigate, which is more than I can say about many of the sites I see advertised here.

    It'd be cool if you guys offered custom para-cord wrap jobs on knives. Like if someone purchased a knife off of your site, or they could send theirs in, you guys could do a cool custom wrap job on it for them.

    In addition to being used as a make shift weapon and/or keychain; they are also used to cast lines, think nautical. The round weighted monkey fish with small diameter line in tow is cast from ship to shore or, ship to ship first; and then the lager, heavier lines are pulled across using the lighter line. Some friends of mine and I have used this for years with great success - works great for none maritime uses as well - like climbing buildings, trees, etc... Much, much easier to sling some paracord with a monkey fist at the end than a 3/8" or bigger line.

    Any idea of the mm thickness of 550 paracord. I am in Australia and find it hard to get paracord, especially the right thickness for wrapping knife handles etc. I have to order it but don't want to order it too thick?
