noun: A thread, made of some material, used to strangle a target, usually either in an assassination or an execution, i.e. before being burned at the stake.

A garrote may be any sort of long, thin, flexible, and durable object, and is often used impromptu. A purpose-built garrote is usually made of Nylon or a strong metal, and has handles at either end to prevent the garrote from slipping out of the assailant's hands. A more discrete garrote is made of a guitar string or piano wire, with fabric threaded around either end to aid in grip. Once the garrote is around the target's throat, unconsciousness and then death come quickly.

verb: To attack and/or kill someone with a garrote.
