Anchor Bend or Nilsson Knot How to Tie

Anchor BendAnchor Bend or Nilsson Knot How to Tie This knot is more commonly known as the anchor bend, however, many Anglers know this knot as the Nilsson Knot. after the Canadian Angling author, and use it for attaching fishing hooks lures and swivels.

This particular ring hitch works exceptionally well when ropes and cords are wet and slimy. When ropes are wet or slimy then quite often a round turn on two half hitches is not suitable knot to secure an object.

This particular knot should not be confused wit the Fisherman’s Bend, as there is a subtle difference in the tying of the two knots.

Anglers Loop or Perfection Loop – Quick Release Version – How to Tie

Anglers Loop or Perfection KnotThis particular version of the anglers loop is taken from The Knot Book by Geoffrey Budworth: Anglers Loop it may sound like a fishing knot, but this all purpose loop is useful for sailors too, particularly as it holds well in bungee cord, which wiggles free from many otherwise dependable knots, even the trusty bowline. Its other name is the perfection loop – anyone who uses it on a regular basis will know the reason why. With the introduction of synthetic ropes the anglers loop has come of age, it is ideally suited to today’s more slippery cordage and therefore well worth adding to your repertoire knots.

Joining Two Different Coloured Cords of Paracord Together with Turbo Lighter Tutorial

Joining or Welding Paracord TogetherJoining Two Colours of Paracord Together with Turbo Lighter Tutorial. The Welding Method and the Interlock Method of joining Paracord.

In this tutorial I will be showing two different methods of joining Paracord using a Turbo lighter. This is especially useful when doing decorative knot work. The first process is not as secure as the second process, as this just involves welding the two end of Paracord together with the Turbo lighter. The second method is more secure as it incorporates the weaving of the two ends together.

A new Captain joined HMS Albion yesterday, blow me over, he had a Twitter account. So I asked him if he could get the “Albion Twitter Comms Rating” to reply to my Tweets. Had a few replies in my in-box this morning.
I had the following reply:
 
“Good afternoon Knotter. TY for the ongoing enthusiastic support and interest. I have just seen your message to the Captain. How can I help?”
 
“Delighted for you to use the bell rope images on your website. Our bell rope which we will gift to Chester next week was made by the sailors on most recent LH seamanship spec course at RALEIGH.”
 
“The other ceremonial bell ropes were made by one of the riggers who gifted them to the ship. He wishes to stay anonymous so we have not given any detail”

Paracord and Rope Work Finishing Solution Video

Finishing Solution

Paracord and Rope Work Finishing Solution Protect Your Work and Stop Knots Coming Undone

I thought I would do a short video on the finishing solution that I make up to project some of my knotting projects. Basically, I use the solution for two purposes. Firstly, I use it to protect some of my work from the elements, so it it gets grimy it can easily be cleaned. Secondly, it also gives me added protection on finishing knots, it acts like a glue to keep the knot secure. The solution in my case is 50/50 of PVA Glue and water, this can be adjusted depending on the work being done, as explained in the video
