New key ring.

I mentioned this in a previous post when it was in the prototype phase but I have now completed one. A 3" length of wooden dowel, tapered at one end with a hole drilled through for the split ring. Continuous hitching in the middle and a Turk's Head at each end.
I forgot to put something in the photo for scale but to give you an idea, the dowel is 8mm or 5/16ths of an inch thick.
Bight - any curved section, slack part, or loop between the two ends of a rope, string, or yarn.
