Knots

Useful knots used in Bushcraft

 

There are many knots and hitches that can be useful to us in a bushcraft/outdoors sense. Here I will show you useful knots that I use and explain the typical scenario that I use them in.

That guy line knot was what I was shown on the Woodlore Fundamental in 2003...I have been using it ever since and have also looked in vain for an official name. It really is very good. However, it was being taught at least five years before you discovered it. ;o) The search for a name continues!

Great picture of the knot...It is very similar to the "guy rope knot" they taught us on the Ray Mears fundamental course. Great website BTW.

I've never liked using a truckers hitch. The Adjustable Cawley Hitch seems like a great alternative. I'm looking forward to trying it in the field and seeing how it holds.

Thanks for sharing this knot!
