Welcome To NetKnots.Com | The Most Trusted Knots On The Net.

Everybody loves the Monkey's Fist knot. It is often requested and all I can say is sorry it took so long to put it up in our rope knots section. Although the knot has a long history from the days of sail. It was first described in print in 1888.
Originally used on the end of a heaving line, the Monkey's Fist is now far more popular as a decorative knot. It is commonly constructed to hang on the ends of keychains, and for home decor items and door stops. The challenge of tying the knot comes in tightening it down but with patience and perserverence one can become quite adept at tying Monkey's Fists.
