You see a stranger across a crowded room, there is an air of familiarity about him, and something intriguing. Well, that is how I feel about the knot. First off, I think I am into quick release knots because I have been biking with my feet clipped in! I think about release all the time. The familiarity… this guy looks like my much beloved prussick! That’s it!… perhaps they are cousins. Ok kids, get about the rope, give it a whirl and think of an application.
