Hunter knot

Nudo HunterThe Hunter knot is a very safe, stable and much stronger knot than the union of the fisherman or the square knot. Not as strong as blood knot but has the advantage of being easier to perform. It is a general knot with excellent qualities.

Initially it was believed that this knot was discovered in 1978 by Dr. Edward Hunter, a retired physician, although some years later, some research found that this knot was invented by Phil D. Smith in 1943 while working on the docks in San Francisco and called knot rigger.
