If you favor lanyards and lanyard beads with your knives, flashlights, and other EDC then knowing how to tie a lanyard knot is essential.
However, initially learning how to tie one can be frustrating. Randy over at SoloKnifeReviews has created the best video I’ve seen on how to tie a lanyard knot. He covers everything from how to get un-gutted paracord through small beads to how to position the finished knot to make sure the lanyard is the correct length. And of course, Randy provides instruction on how to tie the knot in a slow and methodical fashion so you don’t have to waste time stopping and starting the video over and over.
Here is the video. Enjoy.
