Use #13 for a Pocket Knife: Loosening a Knot

Knot in RopeUsed my knife to loosen a snowy square knot in a small rope. I didn’t worry about cutting the rope because the knife was so dull.


However it helped to identify the exact spot where the knife could best help loosen the knot, as opposed to just jabbing away and hoping for the best.  I have since used this technique again on several other small knots with the same knife proving it’s a good use to be featured.
