Table of Contents
Knots have been around for thousands of years - even Neolithic man tied the reef knot, clove hitch and running noose. There are several thousand knots in existence and an almost infinite number of variations. This comprehensive reference manual and practical handbook presents over 200 of the most essential knots.
All the key types of knot are covered, including bends, hitches, bindings, loops, mats, plaits, rings and slings. These include familiar knots, such as the simple overhand or thumb knot, but there are also more challenging knots such as the seizing bend, boom hitch, Chinese button knot and variations of the square Turk's head. Every knot is clearly identified by its category of use: angling and fishing; boating andsailing; caving and climbing; and general purpose and outdoor pursuits, with easy-reference symbols denoting each knot's use at the top of each page.
Each set of instructions is clearly written and accompanied by precise photographs that take you through every step of tying the knot. Whether you are an eager beginner or a lifelong devotee of the satisfying art of knot-tying, this handbook will prove an absorbing and indispensable guide.
