Pretty fancy, not everybody can do that.

I have braided some bullwhips and that is a whole different story.

Thanks, but the bull whips sound like 10x harder, imo..

Here's a paracord lanyard made of 4-core fishtail weave + lanyard knot.

This is my 1st Spyderco and was a Christmas present from my son :

You could braid a pretty good whip if I could coach you for a while.

I did this one on my Mini Grip. But I really like the ones you did. I may have to attempt it!

I like yours as is.. and like that its not captured in the knife, like mine are.
The Lanyard knot is excellent for tying off two strands.
The Diamond knot is good for tying off four strands (top pic right end).
There's a lil trick to making the 4 core fishtail above.

Here's what 80" camo cord looks like in a 4-core 3 1/2" cobra weave FOB:


the little nibs are all that was leftover from 80".




The rest is TMI, unless you're interested in this kind of stuff !
---------------------------------------------------------------

started with feeding cord through knife then adjust for overall FOB size.




cinch that first knot above, then weave a couple cobra knots.



then complete weaving the cobra knot down until only little loop ends remain.



had barely enough cord to finish with a lanyard knot.

This new FOB has 10 snake knots made from 30" cord.
Knife was my trusty EDC for several years, a CRKT Apache ATS34:
