A rope severing apparatus for releasing a rope after continued tension. The first element of the apparatus is the base, which has elastic properties that permit the base to stretch when realizing tensional forces. The base may be a spring in one embodiment, although those skilled in the art would recognize there are other available elements with similar elastic properties that alternatively may be used. The base is connected to a first connection point wherein the first connection point is formed to admit the rope. Preferably the first connection point is a hole through which the rope can be run and tied off. Finally, the present invention requires a cutting edge connected to the base and slidably oriented with the first connection point. The cutting edge is arranged so that it will slide toward the first connection point and sever the rope when the apparatus realizes a tensional force.
