Title: The Broach bend, by Harry Asher
Post by: xarax on April 12, 2014, 08:06:43 PM
   Although the two first curves are hooked within each other, the way the Tail Ends work as pivots reminds the mechanism of the Zeppelin bend, indeed. A more Zeppelin-like, but possibly less stable bend, is shown at (1), and at the last attached picture. The Broach bend can be considered a hybrid between this later bend and the bends based on interlocked shape -"8" knots, shown at (2). However, at those bends shown at (2), the two links are interweaved in many more points, so much more extensively than in the Broach bend, a feature that may be a disadvantage regarding untying.
