The Knot Bible contents:
Hitches: There are at least 30 ways to attach a line to a fixed object. Some are strong while others are secure. What’s the difference? The answer is in the app!
Bends: If you think a sheet bend is all you need to join two lines then think again! Sailors invented the carrick bend, the rigger’s bend and others for very good reasons.
Loops: The bowline may still be the King of Knots, but its tenure is under threat. Find out which are the new loops for new ropes.
