Maat Keyholder/Keyring

2 in stock

Ahoy sailor.

Lovely keyholders made from Reepschnur. The name Reep comes from the north German word for a nautical rope/cord.  

Nowadays Reepschnur is used in many outdoor pursuits from sailing to climbing and mountaineering. 

Maat is a naval rank, of German origin, used by a number of countries. The term is derived from the low German māt (comrade). Via the Dutch language, the word became a nautical term and describes the assistant to a deck officer.

Approx.46cm long with a nice little anchor engraving. 

Made in Hamburg (Germany) from 8mm Reepschnur.
