OriginEdit

A Matthew Walker knot is normally used to keep the ends of a rope was unraveling apart into individual threads. Although the reference to the name is unknown, many believe it relates to an early ship’s rigger in the Royal Army who escaped punishment by making a knot the judge was unable to tie or untie. Highly decorative but functional, Matthew Walker knots have now gone relatively unused in the modern day.

EffectsEdit

Forms a tightly knotted barrier around objects or near moving parts to prevent gradual deterioration. Although thin and in some parts easy to wear away, it will quickly weave itself a patch. The object can be removed from the layer when its being transferred for usage, as the rope will just slide off. Leaving without reconnecting to the rope will cause the object itself to split apart into tendrils until the structure is fully compromised.
