False Knot Concept
This was made with my web cam and just for a friend of mine, showing him what I came up with. So technically we have a false knot, but with the addition of two tiny magnets stuck in the rope you can have the picture that looks pretty similar to a knot. It will not withstand scrutiny, but at a quick glance it is fine. If you are far away (stage) this would even be more deceptive.
The magnets are arranged in such a way that if the rope is folded in half they do not come in contact with one another. That means that you can use the rope for all sorts of other rope tricks as well. You can even hand out the rope. The chance of the audience finding a little bump inside the rope are minute. Try this, it's fun.
