Default Gravity knife lanyard

Hi

I know that it´s difficult to find good LW lanyards.

This one looks good to me but opinions are welcome

The stitching on the loop seems strange to me.

Good one to me. The stitching was different.

Here is my 100% original.

Best regards,
Sergey

The stitching is OK!

Thanks for your comments
I have another lanyard that have a different stiching and that one came originally with the Channel pants that I bought in the early 80s.

Do you see such "wrinkles " on the inside of the metal hook as on the post from Sergey? If yes it is 100% good..

No there is not any parallel lines on the inside on this one.
I don´t think that every hook have them.

Nothing glow under UV light

The one presented is certainly original, and is of the type found inside the pockets of channel trousers. I just inspected a pair of trousers the other day, and as usual, there were two of these inside the pockets.

This one has one hook missing, and you can clearly see where the cord has been broken.
