Awesome feedback is pouring in from all over the world on my latest video

The amazing feedback is pouring in from all over the world. People are successfully learning the turks head knot from my new video! 

"The new video is fantastic. I have been trying to tie the THK for more than five months now - seen all video tutorials and end up more confused than when I start. I watched your video with the amazing jig and it all seemed to fall into place. Being 65 years old things just do not sink in to my mind but now I see the 'rotation' clearly. I am so grateful for your video. I will be ordering a jig as soon as I can... Once again, many many thanks. NigelB."

In the plainspoken, easy-to-understand style that I've become known for I bring you the one and only video you'll ever need to tie a long Turks head knot in any combination of bites and leads. Cover your axes your hatchets your broom handle's your tools, your children - you  name it you can do it! http://youtu.be/tr9Dg4ZyYQs

Paracordist How to Tie the Long Turks Head Knot - for DUMMIES

In my recent blog "Paracordist Video Announcement - New Turks Head Knot Jig and Video Series", I  showcased the "The Perfect Turks Head Mandrel Jig". This incredibly versatile knot tying tool was used to tie the 4 bight turks head seen below on the "Ring Your - Bell Rope" paracord blackjack.
I announced my intent to re-do a comprehensive how to on tying the "long turks head" knot. My intention was to take constructive feedback from viewers of my original multipart series on understanding the long Turks head knot, and make a new video that would:

  1. Utilize the Perfect Turks Head Mandrel / Jig to demonstrate a turks head knot with a minimal number of leads. Use a cord color that contrasted well with the mandrel, good lighting and a neutral background to minimize distraction.
  2. Use video titles to highlight the important "rules" rather than rely upon YouTube annotations which are invisible on some viewing platforms.
  3. Focus on what you need to know to do this knot yourself, in any number of wraps/leads/bights. The video would NOT be about following each of my steps mindlessly.
Well friends, I'm happy to announce that I've published the video that does all that and much much more! I've implemented the "already controversial" school bell sound at key points in the video to give you an HD "slap" in the head, a "wake up" and pay attention signal that is only slightly less abrasive than a slap on the knuckles by a Catholic school nun (personal experience). I did this because I wanted the call attention to the most overlooked yet most critical points in my first series - rules that if not adhered to will result in certain failure. I've expanded my video editing skills and included some cool picture in picture elements and an awesome "outtro" at the end of the video which provides hot links to very important RELATED videos to round our your knowledge of planning and tying turks head knots. Knife and hatchet wraps, tool handles, hiking staff, keychains and countless other projects are now within your reach.

I believe that this is my most effective Paracordist video ever! All you need in one simple video to master the "long" turks head knot in ANY size. Finally, understand the knot in such a way that you can easily tie any variation! Best part - IT’S FREE OF COURSE. I’m so confident that you’ll find it the best, most comprehensive and easy to understand how to video you’ve seen on tying the long turks head knot that I’m offering a no strings attached money back guarantee!

Without further delay, I present to you Paracordist How to Tie the Long Turks Head Knot - for DUMMIES
