Sheepshank. (Overhand <s. ) </s> on bight.)
Other names: Dogshank._ Knotted Sheepshanks
[Caption: T.B.i.69.]
To make: Lay the rope thus:-
Then with a make an overhand knot
round c, and with b the same round d.
If only a is free, make a loose overhand
near b, and pass a through it, leaving
the bight at c. If neither end is free,
this knot cannot be used.
Uses: To shorten rope without cutting it.
Characteristics: One end free. No
seizing. All the sheepshanks are injurious
to stiff rope. (cf E.B.xxi.593.ii.T.)
