The Evenk Hitch or Siberian Hitch has become one of the go to knots in the world of Bushcraft. One of the great features of this knot is that it can easily be tied with your gloves on. It is also an exceptionally fast slip knot to tie! My understanding is that many Bushcrafters use the Evenk Hitch as their starting knot when putting up a ridge line for a tent or tarpaulin.
My understanding is that the Siberian Hitch is only moderately secure and should not be used for critical loads. The actual knot is a type of slipped figure of eight noose.
