Single column tie

There are so many wonderful instruction video's these days on the Net, and all those riggers and rope bottoms that want to share their knowledge with us.

A Single Column Tie. How easy is that? Everybody can make a single column tie, right?
It is the starting point for bondage, because anything can be a column, a bedpost, a wrist, a thigh, the chest, anything round, square or rectangle. So here are some of the well known riggers that share their knowledge, and each do it differently, smile. There are more ways than one to do it right...

The first one is from the Twisted Monk: a basic good, no frills single column tie:

As you can see he uses two square knots to secure the rope. Nothing wrong with that of course, but the version of Giotto is more elegant. Don't pay attention to his behaviour (I think it's the audience, I have seen video's where this guy is not as cocky), just concentrate on the way he is making the single column tie. And he explains it really well:

So this one does not only look prettier, it is more secure. Now what is that wrong knot both video's mention but don't show? We have to take a look at a third video Esinem made and he shows us the Reef Knot, that is really a slide knot that is not useful for a single column tie. So let's have a look at this one as well shall we?

A single column tie, with all the proper warnings, the nerve bundle at the hand, the tingling and feeling dead of the arms, the scissors to cut the rope in case of an emergency. Those three video's are from three different angles the basics of the single column tie.


  1. It looks so easy ..

  2. The ropes and knots are very artistic and lovely...on other people. ;) Thanks for sharing, Han.

    1. Just for other people, Cat? Surely not? These are basic, but very useful knots. And everybody should know how to tie one...
