    Looks like a good way to tie a knot that canít be undone once it takes a strain.

    AKA a knife knot.

    You will be surprised. I just came upon this video showing a lab test of this knot.
    The rope breaks (over 3000 kg) and the knot does not jamb.

    I shoot videos of visual artists for nonprofit that supports artists. I must sy that your knot tying is an odd art form. As a teenager was a volunteer fireman. I had to learn how to tie certain knots to get certified in PA. But I must say that your published example make me realize just how much I did not know. Good posts

    Wow! I'm sold. A bowline would even be hard to untie after that. I do like the knot since it looks like it can be loaded from either end of the line without shifting. No so with a bowline. Have to try this on my kayak hoist.
