overhand knot, Titan Knots -

[blogslidersmall][content]The Overhand Knot is one of the most fundamental knots and forms the basis of many others including the simple noose, overhand loop, angler’s loop, reef knot, fisherman’s knot and water knot. The overhand knot is very secure, to the point of jamming badly. It should be used if the knot is intended to be permanent. It is often used to prevent the end of a rope from unraveling.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
