This really is the king of knots. Sailors, tree huggin greenpeace types cowboys and mountain climbers all lay claim to this puppy. The great thing about this knot is that you can pull a tank out of a mud hole and still be able to take the knot apart with your fingers.
It should be tied with a stopper knot, overhand or such. Also never use this as a method of tieing in to your harness for climbing. It is not easy to tell if it is done correctly and because it does not tighten up it can come undone. In fact it is safe to say that more then 90% of knot failures at the harness is because this knot came undone. You will see climbers at the crag using it but if you look into their eyes you will also see no sign of intelligent life.

I am now booking guiding work. I have just been a stay at home Dad
