For convenience in handling rope and learning the various knots, ties, and bends, we use the terms "standing part," "bight," and "end" (Fig. 3). The Standing Part is the principal portion or longest part of the rope; the Bight is the part curved or bent while working or handling; while the End is that part used in forming the knot or hitch. Knots, Hitches and Bends It is hard to define clearly the terms knot, hitch and bend because their functions overlap. However, the terms may be generally defined as follows: Knots. Knots are used to form eyes, or to secure a cord or rope around an. object. In other words, the line is bent to itself.

His clear directions explain all manner of rope work: simple knots and bends; ties and hitches; nooses, loops, and mooring knots; shortenings, grommets, and selvagees; lashings, seizing, splices; fancy knots and more. This practical guide offers scouts, sailors, and campers a perfect instructional manual and a handy resource. The buntline hitch is a knot used for attaching a rope to an object. It is formed by passing the working end around an object, then making a clove hitch around the rope's standing part and taking care that the turns of the clove hitch progress towards the object rather than away from it. Secure and easily tied, the buntline hitch will jam when subjected to extreme loads.

  How Strong are Different Knots. Below is a strength of knot chart that was taken with thanks to, The Art of Knotting and Splicing – United States Naval Institute. “The following strength of knot table show the efficiency or relative strength normally to be expected of twelve common knots when tied in manilla rope up to 1″ in diameter.”.
