Post by: bar on September 08, 2021, 01:57:00 PM
I saw this knot here:

Is there a proper name for this knot?
Its basically a cow hitch with tag ends passed through the loops in opposite directions. Seems to work quite well.

This noose hitch is a variation of Dahm's Floating Binders,
the first of which is the Gleipnir,
and this is another take on that in hopes of getting
better/surer (quicker) binding --as force doesn't
have to transfer alllll the way around the object
to tighten its nipping parts.

You will get better nipping by using a mere round turn
vice the larkshead.

Cheers,
