Chainmail Tie by bleudragon Chainmail Tie by bleudragon
Ok, so I haven't posted anything up in a long while. I've been meaning to get this up but I'm lazy as fuck.

Anyways I saw some images of chainmail ties and wanted one, but I didn't like the knots on the ones I saw. So, I decided I'd make my own with a knot that was to my liking. It took me around 3 days to make, most of that time was dedicated to figuring out the knot. I'm not even sure I remember how I put the back of the knot together >_<

I used 16ga 5/15" galvanized steel.
The knot and tongue of it is a Euro 4-1 weave the the neckband I used a Half Persian 3-1 weave...I think, don't rightly remember.

I've started on a skinny tie with smaller rings, but I've been too lazy to finish it. I'm thinking of making another regular sized tie with a tighter weave and possibly lighter/smaller rings. We'll see how that goes...

That's awesome! I tried making one a while ago, but I used stainless steel. Galvanized can be poisonous if it gets inside you.*shudder*
