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 many work environments. In Knotting and Splicing Ropes and Cordage, topics include the fundamentals of rope formation; tying simple, useful knots; using different ties and lashings; hammock makings; and more, all accompanied by more than 200 intricate illustrations. A detailed and east-to-follow resource, this manual is perfect for sailors, scouts, climbers, spelunkers, rescue workers, or anyone who is simply interested in the craft.
