Hi there,

Apologies if this is the wrong location, however I'm hoping someone could kindly assist me with identifying the below knot/s :).

Hi TedS. and welcome.

Looks to me to be a Sheet bend secured using pairs of Strangle knots.
Lot of knotting there!

Much appreciated for the prompt response!

Friend initially shared this and it had me stumped. Quite overkill me thinks :P

To be more precise, it's a sort of "double" sheet bend
--it has an extra turn, but is tucked not either twice under
the initial turn or under both turns--,
with each tail knotted with mirror-imaged strangle knots.

Yes, overkill or some want of lonnnng tails (tied up) or ... !?

 ;)

Theory>>
More than overkill?>>
.
Wouldn't we expect more strength:
if center was a Thief knot ;
as pass-thru of force to Strangles?
.
Here, Sheet Bend + is larger impacting deformation?
force termination, force not flowing to empower Strangles?
(like RT on carabiner before Strangle?)
.
Another view, more strength here with hooked bights/no Sheet nor Thief?
.
Center knot/if any; would best serve to manage by buffering high loading force and alignment at those times too?

It appears (to me) to be some variation of a fishermens knot.
