Practical Knots & Ropework

Percy W. Blandford

This thoroughly modern guide avoids historical applications in favor of styles in use today, many of them tailored to new synthetic ropemaking materials. It untangles the secrets behind basic, joining, constricting, fisherman's, and climber's knots, as well as tying loops, rings, and hitches. More than 290 diagrams appear throughout the text.
