Surgeon's Knot

May 15, 2008

surgeons knot

The surgeon’s knot is very secure and therefore good for finishing off most stringing materials. Tie an overhand knot, right over left, but instead of one twist over the left cord, make at least two. Tie another overhand knot, left over right, and pull tight.

Oh, I guess I have been doing it the wrong way, toward me instead of away from me. I'll try this and see if I get better results. Thanks!
