From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
|Heaving line bend|
|Typical use||to attach a Shamisen string to a thick silk eye (rightmost crossing above should have pink cord running UNDER black eye)|
It is somewhat similar to Sheet bend or to Racking bend, may be used to throw a thick line over with the help of a thinner line at the end of which there may be a weight such as a Monkey fist or a Heaving line knot
- Insert the string through the bight, well down from the bight tip.
- Go around the bight and cross above the string on the back side.
- Finish by tucking the end between its turn around the first bight leg and that leg; pull tight.
