Mastering the Zeppelin Bend | Step-by-Step Guide

Gooday my Savvy!

Today, we shall embark on a journey to master the art of tying the Zeppelin blend knot. So gather your trusty rope and follow these simple instructions:

1. Begin by forming a “6” shape with one end of the rope, ensuring that the running line is positioned above. Simultaneously, create a “9” shape with the other end, with the running line positioned below. Now, place the 6 partially over the 9.

2. Take the free end of the 9 and pass it through the opening created by the 6 and the 9.

3. Repeat the previous step, but this time with the free end of the 6. Pass it through the opening formed by the 6 and the 9, but in the opposite direction.

4. Give the ends a gentle tug, and behold! You have successfully tied the Zeppelin Bend Knot.

The Zeppelin Bend Knot is an excellent choice for joining two ropes together. It is not only easy to tie but also highly secure and resistant to jamming.

Thank you for joining us today, and we look forward to having you with us next week for another Savvy Sunday!
