Thief Knot

(Fake Square Knot or Slip Knot)


The Thief knot


The Thief knot resembles the Reef or Square knot at a casual glance. Note that the ends of the Thief Knot come off opposite sides of the knot. In the Reef knot, they come off the same sides.

  • However, the Thief knot has no strength whatsoever, and will slip under tension.
  • Try it and see!
  • Tip. Only use this knot for tricks. NEVER use it where life and limb are at risk.
