Love this! A sterling silver eight bend knot boating ring. Can we tie this knot in real life? Not yet, but are up to the challenge. This knot is very important in both sailing and rock climbing as a method of stopping ropes from running out of retaining devices. Like the overhand knot, which will jam under strain, often requiring the rope to be cut, the figure of eight will also jam, but is usually more easily undone than the overhand knot. We gathered this information from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, we didn’t know how to describe the eight bend knot.
This ring is a great gift to commemorate your recent adventure to what most deem the top spots for climbing. The list is debatable, and based solely on opinions found in rock climbing forums, but most agree, a trip is worth it to at least one of these states, to get some real climbing in:
Or, if you prefer the gentle breeze on your face, the sun on your back…. maybe a sailing jaunt is more your adventure style. Depending on your choice of recreation, knots can mean many different things. In the jewelry world they often represent a bond. A bond of love, a bond of constancy…. no matter what you interpret the knot to mean, this silver ring is a great way to showcase your love of sport, of life, of yourself, of others. It’s knot your average ring….
