In this video, Parker demonstrates why you’ve been tying the blood knot the wrong way all this time. With a little practice, we’re confident you’ll never tie the blood knot the old way ever again.
Tying the blood knot this way makes dealing with windy conditions, cold temperatures and low light much easier. It’s also a game changer for those of you that might struggle with unsteady hands or poor eyesight because it is tied almost completely based on feel. With some muscle memory you can do it with your eyes closed!
A couple key points to keep in mind when practicing this blood knot:
-Keeping tension on the knot at all times is key. You’re teeth help tremendously with this.
-Teaching yourself to wrap or roll the loop is the hardest part. Once you get that down you’ll never forget how to do it.
-The traditional blood knot involves inserting the tag ends of the line into the loop at opposite directions. Parker puts both tag ends through the same side of the loop. He’s tested his knot numerous times to compare the strength and finds his method to actually be stronger than the traditional blood knot.
