Knot of the month from Ocean Sailor Magazine

The Ocean Sailor Knot of the month

Locked blood or fisherman’s knot

This knot is excellent for joining thin lines together, such as twine, braided, or nylon lines. We have illustrated a locked blood knot rather than a standard blood knot because the locked blood knot will not slip.
It’s best to wet the knot in your mouth before pulling it tight.
