The double fisherman’s knot is a bend, or a knot used to join two lengths of rope.

A very important knot to learn, the double fisherman knot is used often in climbing and high-angle work to form loops of cord for establishing anchors, belay stations and protection systems. Another common use is the backing up of a critical knot, like a harness tie-in or rappel rigs. The running end is tied around the standing end of the rope, so that it cannot slip back through the knot.
