    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

    hello,
    Thanks for the tutorial @asemery I can't find inner core large steel BB's for now, so I'm planning to use clear glass marbles, or as we Scots say 'jauries', 'glesses', or 'bools' taken from Boules, the French pronunciation. :)
    Regards
    David
