Violin Bend — 1 Comment

  1. The Violin bend is exactly the REVERSE of ABOK 1422! That is, to get the violin shape to appear, in 1422, you have to pull on the WORKING ends, (just the opposite of the Violin bend). When 1422 is place under load, it capsizes into something resembling a capsized Carrick bend, (try it)! Unlike the Carrick bend, though, ABOK 1422 is very difficult to untie after it’s been under load, just as Ashley asserts.

    I enjoy your videos, and would not mind exchanging a few emails with you. I’m a friend of Dave Root, (co-author of the KnotTyer program). We playtest each other’s software, from time to time, and exchange knot ideas.

    Best Wishes,
    Tom Sales

    Anyway, nice
