Magic? Nnnaah ... maybe not so. Try the "Dick Turpin Knot" ;-)

Love the Dick Turpin or Highwayman's knot. I looked it up on youtube and found: http://youtu.be/yPjou1UEfbc He spends over 5 minutes discussing the history of the knot, then does an excellent job of showing how it is made. 'Seems like a very effective rope quick-release.

The "Dick Turpin Knot" is based on this knot. This one is the base, the simpliest one ;) But thanks I didn't know about the Highwayman's knot !
