I am compelled to say I find this thread upsetting. :-[  I jumped in when I though it was about slight of hand and parlor tricks.   My object when I did that sort of play was to make a knot apear from nowhere and disapear back from whence it came.  Both the Tom Fool and Handcuff are fun "fast hands" knots... but I am talking  about making your hands move quickly... not makeing another persons hands fast! :o  I hope this was all of a theoretical discussion or that Andrew is writing a mystery novel.

I am sure we all investigated this problem at some point, I always thought that two constrictor knots would be the best rope handcuff, but in fact the problem is that the only way to handcuff with rope is to have so much tension that bloodflow would be shut off. Even since ancient times, metal handcuffs or manacles have been used in preference to rope. In modern times, nylon cableties are used as handcuffs when metal ones are not suitable. The s&m bondage scene does utilise an effective wrist binding involving multiple turns around the wrists with frapping turns between the wrists, similar to a shear lashing, but this requires so much cooperation from the bound person, that I regard it as decorative, not a real handcuff.

I am sure Bidybag doesn't need reminding that:

a) kidnapping is an extremely serious offence

and

b) both myself and the forum's moderators have access to enough information via registration and IP address to enable the authorities to trace any poster quite easily.

I would certainly not hesitate to pass this information onto the relevant authorities if I suspected that a criminal act was, indeed, being discussed.

Perhaps Bidybag would now like to elaborate on the earlier response and put everyone's mind at rest?
