without a re-threaded fig-8 and and a re-threaded alpine butterfly(see how-long that takes you to figure out!)? If you don't have at least 3 knots you have a deathwish....

But on a serious not, i have watched an EDK roll slightly on two different diameter ropes so now do exactly as my amigo above says and puts in another one. Probably entirely uneccessary but im a scaredy cat now as I've witnessed many strange things with ropes etc performing entirely as we're told they wont. Better safe than sorry and it adds about 45 seconds to your abseil process, even if its an 18-pitch abseil route, seems worth it to me...
