So I made this leash and jess set the other day.  The leash braiding is outlined in another post, and the Jesses are simple paracord jesses.  The beauty part of the leash are the Goucho knots on each end made from 150# black Dacron Kite String.

Braided Dacron Jesses

Braided Dacron Jesses

It’s taken a bit of time to perfect the techniques, however I am pleased to say that my efforts have not gone unrewarded. After reading through some braiding tutorials and tying knots and untying knots for hours, I have a pretty good how-to on braiding dacron jesses. Check out the new how-to in the “How-To: Equipment” section.
I chose 100 lb. test black dacron kite string and then applied a few knots and braiding styles to produce a single piece of equipment that is both strong and functional. The how-to that I put together is more of a set of high-level instructions for creating Jesses, rather than a complete step-by-step instruction manual for braiding and knot tying.  I leave the details up to the experienced pros where applicable.
If you are interested in taking a look at a set of my dacron jesses, please leave me a comment and let me know.
