N_B_K_Types_of_Knots discussion

Page history last edited by dave@layhands.com 11 years, 9 months ago

This is a place for discussing the definition of the following terms:  N.B.K.Types of Knots

 

  • N.Ring_Type -- A type of .Knot which creates a .Ring (e.g. an Alpine Butterfly).  Traditionally referred to as a Single Loop Knot.

 

  • N.Two_Ring_Type -- A type of .Knot which creates two .Rings (e.g. a Double Alpine Butterfly).  Traditionally referred to as a Double Loop Knot.

 

  • N.Three_Ring_Type -- A type of .Knot which creates three .Rings (e.g. a Triple Alpine Butterfly).  Traditionally referred to as a Triple Loop Knot.

 

  • N.Union_Type -- A type of .Knot which is used for tying two or more .Tail_Ends together (whether from the same .Cord or from different .Cords).  Traditionally referred to as a Bend.

 

  • N.Tether_Type -- A type of .Knot which is used for tying a .Cord around an object and which relies on conforming to the shape of the object for its gripping/holding force.  Traditionally referred to as a Hitch.  If an animal is tethered to a post using a Bowline, for example, then the Bowline would be referred to as a .Ring_Type because it doesn't rely on conforming to the shape of the object for its gripping/holding force.

 

  • N.Endless_Ring -- Formed by tying a .Union_Type .Knot using both ends of a single .Cord.  Traditionally referred to as a Sling.

The reason for the suggestion of Tether_Knot rather than something like Hitch_Knot is because "hitch" means "to fasten or tie, esp. temporarily, by means of a hook, rope, strap, etc.; tether" (dictionary.com). "Tether" is defined in terms of fastening to a fixed object, with no mention of permanence or impermanence (dictionary.com).
