I decided to make yet another snek, this time it is armor grade though. I used stainless scale and steel split rings, aside from the trimming of butted stainless steel rings for the face and for the crosses inside to prevent the wood balls from migrating. This one is slightly longer than the first by ~4cm (one wood ball segment), over all it's ~2 meters. I haven't weighed it yet, but will try to remember to edit this with it's weight later.
Two other improvements: 1) My snek consultants told me the eyes should be bigger, so this time there are 8mm eyes instead of ~5mm eyes. 2) There was a temporary installation of a red rubber band with a forked tip for a tongue; This snek has some red micro cord in a two strand snake knot (you can see why I wanted to use that knot).
