Quartermaster Monkey Fist Knot by SHIPCANVAS

old school swagger...

"Quartermaster" Monkey Fist Knot


 "...One quick pop on the head with this beauty, and it's lights out!"

The Quartermaster is a 5-finger Monkey's Fist knot with an eye-spliced hand loop, plus a sewn leather grip... which is then whipped and finished with 2 Turk's Head knots. It measures approximately 19" end to end, and we build it using the same vintage New England rope that we use on our seabag lanyards.

What's it for?

In the old days, the Quartermaster would have been used to maintain discipline aboard the ship, keeping unruly crewmembers in line, as well as providing concealment for small valuables buried inside the Monkey's Fist. 

Today it's just for fun! Display it at the home or office, or attach it to your ditty bag for a bit of extra swagger. And if the need for self-defense should arise...

Ships quickly and directly from our rigging shop. Nicely packaged for gift-giving or presentation. Includes branded leather tag and 10-year Warranty.

CAUTION: Not a toy. Misuse may result in harm or serious injury.

A few choice words of Wit and Wisdom
from the Quartermaster Himself


Okay Ed, it's on. I just ordered this wicked little b****. The anticipation of this is giving me a ****** ****** ! When I do get back to the Keys it's dinner and drinks for your happy a**, I hope you know a good place. I'm sure all the ones I used to know have washed out to sea long ago.
Thank you,


Ahh yes Joe... well it's not everyday we receive an inquiry so aptly phrased in perfect French... but we do speak that very same kind of French... and so you get bonus points and extra credit for doing it properly, generously, and without hesitation.  Well done sir!  The second round's on me.
