A highly secure knot for joining two lines that consists of two overhand knots. It grips itself very tight and easily jams even under a slight strain. The knot got its name after Dr. Edward Hunter, who was thought to be its inventor. Actually, the knot had been described 30 years before. ABoK #1425A
