I know it's been mentioned several times, but the bowline is the one knot that could save a life. The one handed technique is great to know because one end of the line can be thrown down to the victim and they can hang onto to the line while they tie the bowline around themselves with the other hand. The guy in this video uses his grasping hand to assist in the last part of the knot tying, but if your fingers are nimble, you can totally wrap the working end around the standing line with one hand. It's easy to learn too, using the triangle method of instruction.http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-tie-a-one-handed-bowline/
