I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out with friends and had to tie something or someone down and everyone just looks at me.
No matter how often I remind them they need to read our KOTW articles and watch the videos here on ITS, I thought I’d put together an article on what I consider to be the knots I use the most on a regular basis and why you should have them at your disposal. Below you’ll find links to our original articles on ITS with tying instructions, as well as embedded videos that take you step-by-step through each of them.
Let’s face it, it’s hard to remember all the knots we teach here on ITS and knot tying is a depreciable skill that needs to be practiced. So let’s look at five, in no particular order, that you should know how to tie with your eyes closed or even underwater.
Bowline / One-Handed Bowline
Threaded Figure-Eight paired with Swiss Seat
Double Fisherman’s Knot
Power Cinch Knot
Honorable Mention – Chain Sinnet
Using good knots one day may mean the difference between life and death. Great Article from our Guys at ITS Tactical - Imminent Threat Solutions!
