Add some class and sophistication to your knife lanyard with damascus beads from Tallen knives.
These high carbon Damascus steel beads with a bisecting wide groove make a great addition to any lanyard. Each bead is unique due to the material. Sold individually.
Please Note: Clean and maintain with REM oil or WD-40 to inhibit rust.
...because it's dark and heavy. Seriously though, those to characteristics of the bead have meant that I still haven't found a knife to put it one, despite buying it months ago. I'd intended to tie it to a lanyard for one of my two Damacus-bladed knives, but the pattern on the bead, and the color it imparts are much blacker and darker than the knife blades. It's somewhat similar but that similarity w/o a real match looks worse with the other Damascus than a completely contrasting color. Further difficulty comes from the weigh: BHQ says this bead weighs .29 oz; my digi say .32, but no doubt the all very a bit. Either way, that's heavy for a little bead, about the same weight as three dimes, but at about 2/3 the diameter. When one runs with that bead hanging from one's pocket, it slams around uncomfrably. It's just heavier than is comfortable on anything but a very large knife. Other may like the weight and even the color, but I'll probably stick withl TiSurvival beads.
