It's a carrick bend. I've seen it used by ships. Wouldn't use it to connect two climbing ropes though...

Would prolly be OK for joining two ropes if you finished it off properly, but why bother when you can use the simple EDK.

Apparently you didn't get the memo, the EDK is "dangerous"! SlyLaughLaughLaughLaugh
