Title: Book: Directory of Knots
Post by: Yowbarb on November 27, 2010, 12:41:26 AM
The Directory of Knots
By John Shaw

From ICON:
I'm sure everyone at one time or another will have a need to tie a knot, and sometimes a granny knot will just not do the trick. And in a survival situation, you don't need to depend on something that might slip and cause harm to you or yours, or damage to your equipment.
And I'm sure there is a lot of knot books out there, but this one has always been good for me.
It goes into basic, traditional, mutations, innovative knots, and gives a little terminology and other information.
I have an older spiral bound version of this book, and there is a new version out, but knots don't really change, so save your money for something else and buy this cost effective version.

I've got 2 good books on knots and their uses. It's one of the things that got the most laughs from my buddies at my last poker game.

Rope and other line is something I never pass up. If I find a usable piece anywhere, or if it's a good price or on sale, I snatch it up!
