Description

Honda knot is the loop knot commonly used in a lasso.

Use

This is the knot all cowboys use to form their lasso or lariat. The Honda Knot creates the most nearly-perfect circle
of any knot. Its round shape, especially when tied in stiff rope, helps it slide freely along the rope it is tied
around which is what makes it good for a lariat.
