    Anyone heard of this knot or have documentation on it? I just watched a video (below) where Mors discusses it. I'm not sure I totally have it, but it might only entail a bowline where 'the rabbit goes around the tree an extra loop'. Whether there are any other special changes I can't see due to a perm.

    Anyone else know details?

    Here's the link, talks about it at 19:40.

    @SpookyPistolero - Have the same trouble with his explanation on the jam knot (at 3:05). The hair got in the way and I could not see how he did the handle loop. If you figure this one out, let me know.

    I played around with what I understand he said on the Bradshaw.

    Starting with normal loop.

    The line comes out of the hole and around the line twice (going up the line).

    Then a bight is pulled through the loop and everything is pulled tight leaving a piece you can grab hold and pull.

    If you go up the line, when you pull on the tag end, the bowline falls apart easily.

    If you take the second time around down the line,

    Pulled tight

    when you pull the tag end, it ties into a half hitch.
