Do you know what this knot is?
« on: September 17, 2019, 06:25:44 PM »
In a display case this was listed as a sheepshank knot.   Does not look right to me.   Anyone have an idea?

Back in the mid 1950's our Scout leader told us that the extra tuck made the sheepshank knot more secure.
A few years ago I added several extra turns to the basic sheepshank to make a pouch for a sling. It worked well.

Very good knot for rope shortened.
