A finely illustrated guide to the art of knotting and splicing, from a master craftsman.

When it comes to explaining the tools and techniques of the practical craftsman, Paul N. Hasluck is a true master. Here is his comprehensive and concise reference for learning to knot and splice like an expert. Though many know it as a decorative hobby, knotting is an ancient device once employed by the earliest inhabitants of the earth. Over time, ill-made knots have proven to be disastrous -- even fatal -- for tradesmen and women in cordage, topics include the fundamentals of rope formation; tying simple, useful knots; splicing rope and working cordage; tying fancy knots; using different ties and lashings; hammock making; and more, all accompanied by more than 200 intricate illustrations.
