About Jan Korpegård
Also called Double Lark's head.
A very useful knot. If made in the end of a line this knot is an
fixed loop, which you easily can resize, just by moving the knot.
Suitable as a guy-line knot.
Tying the Prusick with only one final loop, instead of two (making
3 turns around the standing part rather than 4) is called a "taut
line hitch" and serves the same purpose as thes Prusick. Used by
scouts to keep guy ropes taut on tents and towers. Very useful.
Normaly the prussick is made with a thin line on a rope. This thinner
line could then be used as a handle that could be moved on the rope.
James Bond used his shoelaces in a movie to climb a rope using this knot.
