Different Knots have a different use. Whether it be to bind a prisoner, fashion a moor line for a boat, to tow a car or to hang game for skinning. Using the correct knot distributes wieght and friction better than just... tieing two things together.

Awww I remember my knots well, before I joined the Army I left the Navy as an RM2 And have a 26 ft Columbia sailboat called Seaquest. So dont feel bad I cheat and play both sides of the fence I loved the Nav go back if I could I was RIFTED in the 95 Clinton cutbacks so I went grunt little did I know the Nav wouldn't take me back so I cheer for Annapolis during the Army Navy game while wearing Army ACU's

Hmm...wife reading this thread over my shoulder, and she asked me an interesting question:

 

You can only teach someone two knots, which two would you teach them, and why? (Let's assume they already know how to tie their shoes, LOL).

Boline and a Sheetbend the boline is a nonslipping knot the sheetsbend allows you to securely connect two pieces of rope even if they are of different diameter (width) but I do not think you could just know those three knots as a minimum I would say there are actually 6 critical knots to know boline, sheetbend, fishermans,square, sheep shank, and slip knots these are knots I use constantly. I have a top ten that I teach all my students but in a pinch you can do most of what you run into with these six

Slip knot (snares, lasso, noose, "adjustable to loop around anything that you don't know for sure how big around it is", etc.) and Square knot:: a strong 'general purpose' knot that doesn't slip loose like your shoe strings.

 

i have 100ft of 550 para cord in my BoB, each END is tied in a SLip knot, and the line is wrapped in a way i can just toss a loop over a hitch or sturdy fence post and run without worrying about the line getting knotted while unraveling quickly.

A truckers hitch is a compound knot

 

incorporates a bowline and a half hitch and a slip knot as well as others they work together to secure a

load on a vehicle, trailer, wagon or packing an animal

Aha! I used to drive a truck for a living, but I'd never seen these used before to secure a load (we had ratchets, straps and bungees for everything, when we tarped a load). I learned something new, thanks, Snake!
