[VIDEO] How To Cut Rope Without Any Tools – This Is So Awesome!

This awesome technique for cutting rope is GENIUS! In an emergency, you need to be able to think on your feet and work with your hands! We talk a lot about improvising on this site and this post is no exception.

The ideal survivalist can use what tools and materials they have to accomplish what they need to accomplish, even if they have to improvise the tools or materials and re-purpuse them.

That said, did you know you can cut a rope without any knives or tools? Did you know that you can cut rope with rope?

This particularly amazing hack was not only “hiding in plain site,” it is just plain cool.

By using natural friction, patience and a little elbow grease, any rope can be cut in two, which could be useful if you are tied up or if you just do not have the proper cutting tools to cut rope at your avail.
