Interesting, since the sheet bend is one of the knots I use the most.
It also saved a great deal of inconvenience on a short cross-country
ski trip when a shoulder strap on my day pack broke -- stopped long
enough to sheet bend the two parts together and then was able to
continue right along. I also use it EVERY time I join two ropes
together, regardless of their relative sizes. I believe the only knot
I use more (other than for tying my shoes) is the two half hitches.
But I guess everyone has their own favorites.
