Really excellent booklet. I like the diagrams- they're very user friendly and clear. Thank you
That's awesome! I don't think i have ever tied an "official" knot in my life!! As long as it works, i'm happy, usually!! i think it is about time i learnt some actual knots. Going to check this out later, but if all the other comments are anything to go buy...... i should be learning in no time!
Great little booklet thanks
amazing resource - many many thanks
good one, cheers
I'm a noobie and this is great. Thanks so much for sharing.
I love this booklet. The pictures are really good and very easy to follow. I'm well impressed with the text you've included and I've learnt a great deal from your work. Thanks for posting. Good job.
Thanks to Sailing_Swagman, davegreg, pinkfaery, Honest Outrage, country boy, mvmbushcraft, jackcbr, bgreen and Kitharode. Glad you liked it.
I was expected to learn and use more than a dozen knots, as a kid, on camping trips in Northern Canada. Ropes and boats.
Suppose you had to pick no more than 10 from your book for a kid to both learn and use on a dry land camping trip.
What are they?
In my opinion, you left out a couple (such as a sheep shank) that are rather useful depending on camp locations.
However. What you have written is far, far better than most. A copy for the house and a copy for the trek.
Every day and night = practice to make them look both easy and finished.
Choose 10? The booklet started out with 10!
The only use for a sheep shank is to shorten a hoisting rope (when the cargo is larger than usual) in order to avoid reweaving it through the pulley blocks.
It has no modern application despite its regular appearance in every scout and knot book.
OK. Might you think that the top ten would shift in different service?
10 will give you a selection wide enough to tackle most situations. As long as you do not use a Reef Knot as a bend you will be fine.
Awesome book!!! Thanks for post it.
Thanks for the great booklet - concise and portable.
To mirror others, thanks for the book it looks a great read.
I had a book of climbing knots which showed a bowline with end on the outside, it said to tie it this way so it could be undone (but it also said never to use bowline to secure a person, use double figure8).
End on the inside means the knot is less vulnerable to being 'upset' by something catching the end and inverting the knot.
Cool, only just spotted this.
Been meaning to learn more than just tarp related knots for ages.
This sounds like a good start.
I'll read through a bit later, thank you !
I would be greatful if you cozuld send me a pdf version of knots, please
