All you need to know about knots

by I L on May 2, 2013

Most comprehensive book about knots I have ever come across. Seems to me that all others might well have been based upon this one. I you like knots, you`ll love this book!

Good book, Good service

by mark c on Mar 14, 2013

If you want a book on rope work this is the one to have.

A required reference for the Knot Tyer

by Dan M on Nov 26, 2012

This is rightfully considered the Bible of knots. Mr. Ashley not only illustrates each knot, but describes it's use and how it is tied. This may cause some confusion to the novice, saying, "bowline, weaver's knot, sheet bend? They're all the same!" and while they are, in form, they are not the same in the way they are tied or used. Mr. Ashley explains it clearly to the reader.
