Now the real fights begin....

What's the best way to do the loop? what's the best tie off?

A slip knot or some other kind of quick release knot you are comfortable with, maybe a mooring hitch followed by a overhand knot or a double one. That way you secure your hitch so it won't slip, and you still have it under tention after you untie the overhand knot.

Hope you understand what I mean :facepalm:

That's just the way I'd do it. Others might have different ideas.

I like an Artilleryman's loop or slip knot on a figure 8 tied off with a Clove hitch and a couple of half hitches. But that's just me.

Today I and the little boy spent a good time together tying knots. He is a good gentle kid. Always ready to help me with all chores around the house.

Last year he had a idea of make a small wooden sak for me as father's day gift.
He even made drawings of all parts before cut every part and assembly.

My wife helped him with the job.

This is my more valuable SAK by far.

I have it as a harness loop, but it would appear they are names for the same thing.

We going to get to see how to tie that darling of a knot?   :whistle:

Heres my entry.  Its a jam knot that I like for not so obvious reasons.  For some you'll know why I chose it  ;)

San Diego Jam Knot.   Just to be clear, this is a fishing knot not a climbing knot.  I used a carabiner in the pictures since I'm not a fisherman.  I do however use this knot to secure carabiners for NON CLIMBING things.  its simple and easy to tie and for NON CLIMBING use its a good knot. 

Uses: The San Diego Jam Knot is also known as the Reverse Clinch Knot and as the Heiliger Knot. The San Diego Jam Knot was popularized in San Diego particularly with long-range tuna fisherman. It is reasonably easy to tie at sea and is suitable for monofilament, braided, and fluorocarbon fishing lines.

Number of turns: The number of turns should be decreased with size, ranging from about 7 to 8 turns for 10lb line down to 3 turns for 40lb line.

Tying it: When tightening the San Diego Jam Knot, ensure that the turns form a neat spiral and don’t overlap each other.

Strength: Comparison testing suggests that the San Diego Jam Knot probably retains the strength of the line better than most fishing knots.

Advantages: The San Diego Jam Knot is relatively easy to learn and to tie – even in adverse conditions.

I use paracord and its pretty easy to dress the knot and keep the cord flat and not overlapping.

The knot can look like a hot mess but you can tidy it up pretty easy even with a lot of turns.  Heres the knot tidied up and finished.  Start with a long tag so you have plenty left over.

For the Truckers Hitch I'd say Alpine Butterly  :whistle:.

I like the idea of the Alpine butterfly for a trucker's hitch....but for some reason I never think to use it.  :dunno:

San Diego Jam Knot. 




Nice! 

I've seen it recommended. And I have a vague memory of using the SD Jam knot a few times.....but, I'll confess, it is knot one of my usual knots. 

Thanks for the reminder!  I may have to try it out again!  :tu:

 :salute:.  Its a easy enough knot to tie when I just want to cinch.  Pretty easy to untie as well which I really like. 

Its neat which knots each of us recall and use.  This thread has me finger twisted trying all the knots.  When we get to the end I want to have 5 that I can tie on demand.

My Knot in October knot number 3 is called the Uni-knot.  The descriptor simply states that it is another knot for attaching a tippet to a fly and that it is stronger than the Improved Clinch. Apologies in advance for the quality of the photos.

Hope all is well. :salute:

We call it the half boatsman, but I don't know the english name for it.

It's a cousin to the clove hitch, just overlapping the ither way around. It releases in both directions but provides friction and can be used to absail short pitches.

I had to draw the line three times, and I'm still not sure I'm right.

It works fine in my hands, but I can't make it work on the screen to save my life....


When you're not thinking about it, it's quick and easy to tie - two twists of the bight then pull through.....

If I stop to think about it, I balls it up every time.


It is marginally easier to make and unmake than an alpine butterfly, and fulfills more or the less the same role in a lot of utility situations. I'm not a climber myself, but it does not appear to be favoured by climbers, so it is perhaps considered less strong or reliable than the alpine butterfly.
