These Five Survival Knots Can Save Your Life In The Wilderness

This fantastically useful video from Nature Reliance School teaches us five simple yet incredibly useful knots that will serve you well in survival, hiking, camping, farming and more. The demonstrations are simple, clear and easy to follow. If you watch just one knot-tying tutorial, this should be it! Rave reviews from military and retired fire service personnel together with 5.3M views backs up my point! 🙂

1. Half Hitch

Probably the first knot everyone learns. However here we learn not only the basic half hitch, but ways to combine two half hitches to create a knot that holds tight and can be released with a single pull.

Ancedote: When we were kids we used to tie what we called a “Benny Knot” – which was simply tieing one half hitch after another and keeping going until there was (in our minds) no possibility that it could ever come undone. Not recommended.

2. Fisherman’s Knot

Demonstrated with two different colored cords for visibility, this double-knot gives us a perfect way to join two cords that won’t come undone easily.

3. Prusik Knot

This useful knot will allow you to tie another cord to a ridge line that is already pulled taut. You’ve probably done a simple version of this without even knowing that this was what it was! However when the knot is doubled up in the right way, you have a perfect knot that can either slide or grip tightly depending on how tightly you cinch it down. This knot is used by climbers to climb up a rope; using two or more.

4. Trucker’s Hitch aka Canoeman’s Hitch

The super-useful trucker’s knot is a must-learn! The trucker’s knot creates a kind of pulley system from your rope; it’s designed to be attached to a load and then pulled super tight in order to cinch it down strongly. It’s also perfect for fixing guy ropes for a shelter and can give you the tightness to pull that tarp flat and secure it strongly.

5. Clove Hitch

The basic clove hitch is simple and ties a rope to a rod. Used to lift smooth cylindrical items as it will grip them well. Can also be used to tie feed sacks and bundles of sticks or rods.

More Knots?

Finally, just thought I would add these extra knots that came from the comments.

6. Figure-Eight Stopper
7. Bowstring Loop
8. Fixed Gripper
9. Cow Hitch
10. Hunter’s Bend
11. Butterfly Loop
12. Carrick Bend
13. Midshipman’s Hitch
14. Rolling Hitch

How many of these do you know? 🙂

Want even more? I’ve got you. Try what has been called “The definitive book on knots”: “The Ashley Book of Knots – Every Practical Knot . What it Looks Like . Who Uses it. Where it Comes from and How to Tie it. With 7,000 Drawings Representing Over 3,800 Knots”

Apparently that book took eleven years to write and was based on forty years of research!

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
