Josh187 Looks like an upside down klemheist with less turns, anyone know if it is any good? 26-08-13
daltontrees Seems to be named after the area of Germany known as Swabia ('Schwaben') in German). Among famous swabians, wikipedia lists Andreas Stihl!
We use this knot as standard for climbing, and we just call it the 'swabian'.

Steve Bullman Thanks Morten,

I just checked, the search doesnt pick up on comments unfortunately. Yes theres loads of different ways to spell this one unfortunately, it was a case of take your pick when we created the gallery

morten I had trouble finding this knot by search.

I am not sure, but I think the spelling "Swabich" is not correct. At least the spelling "Schwabisch" generates thousand times more hits on Google.

Mind you, there are other spellings out there in the wild:
Schwabish
Swabish
Swabisch
Shwabish
(and more)

Anyway, this comment should hopefully allow them all to be used when searching the know guide.
