About Jan Korpegård

Reef Knot (Square Knot (A.E.))

Reef Knot (Square Knot (A.E.))
The knot everyone knows!!?! This is a knot for tying the ends of a piece of rope or string together, for example when tying up a parcel. Remember this is a called a knot NOT a bend, as it should not for tying two ropes together, especially when your life depends on it, as it is easily spilt. Learn the knot by name one of the parts Bertil, and the other one Sture. When they fight, Bertil is stronger so he will get on the top. They twist, and the same thing happens again. Bertil gets on the top again. They twist again, and the reefknot is done.
Pleas note! No matter what some people thinks below, this knot should not be used when you tie two ropes together that you are going to climb!
