In this knot tutorial Jason demonstrates how to tie the Constrictor Knot.
Learning to tie knots has always been an important part of camping skills and the Constrictor Knot has been a knot taught in programs like the Boy Scouts (now known as Scouts) for generations.
This is an easy all purpose knot that’s easy to tie. It’s a good binding knot that’s often used to start lashing knot or to bind several pieces of wood together.
This is a great alternative to the Clove Hitch and will provide a more secure knot. The Constrictor Knot is a knot that should be taught as a camping knot and also a Scouts Knot because its an ideal knot for bushcraft, wilderness skills or wilderness survival.
Despite being a stronger, more stable knot than the Clove Hitch, I don’t believe it replaces the Clove Hitch but simply offers another great knot for camping. I highly recommend you also check out how to tie the Clove Hitch Knot.
