  1. “Eskimo” is a word that should really not be used anymore, it’s an offensive term for those people, whom we no call by the same name as they have always called themselves: Inuit

    • It might cause unnecessary confusion regarding this knot if the name were adjusted to accommodate overly sensitive politically correct peoples. Just as referring to “things” as Oriental is acceptable perhaps referring to a knot as “Eskimo” is equally acceptable. And of course a person’s intent should be acknowledged.
