Royal Navy Monkey Fist




In the regular monkey fist knot the Working End bends at a severe angle when it changes from one phase to the next. This causes visible indications of the transition (a and b).



In the Royal Navy Monkey Fist a gentler angle is used. This leaves no indication of the transition

That is a really neat looking knot.
