9780091773793: The Complete Guide To Knots: For Sailing, Fishing, Camping and Climbing

This handy-sized guide is an indispensable reference book for everyone from the novice to the craftsman and the outdoor adventurer. With everything from everyday knots to decorative and applied knots, this pocket guide reveals what each knot looks like, where you can use it and how to tie it. Each one comes with a short introduction about its properties, easy-to-follow instructions and clear step-by-step photographs showing every single stage. Beginning with a chapter on different types of rope and the situations where they should be used (whether they are flexible, tough, are water resistant or can float), this comprehensive handbook spans simple knots like the Loop knot, sewing knots like the Overhand knot, moving on to climber's knots, applied knots used to make rope ladders or netting, and beautiful ornamental knots. Special sections are devoted to knots used for shortening ropes, those for use as tackles for lifting and moving weights, and importantly, knots that can be tied with only one hand for emergency situations. This essential book will enable you to master 70 of the most useful knots with absolute confidence.
