Knot Tying: Reeds Knot Handbook

Bookmark and Share

If you’re looking for a quick and easy-to-use reference for knot-tying, Reeds Knot Handbook is your ideal companion. The little book is just 4in x 6.25in, meaning it will fit in your pocket, your gear bag or your nav desk. Inside, you’ll find over 50 knots divided into categories: overhand knots and hitches, figure-of-eight knots, bowlines and bends, crossing knots, wrap and tuck knots, and more. Each page displays a photo of the finished knot, a brief paragraph describing the knot’s history and its use, and a step-by-step graphical illustration of how the knot is tied. It’s small, it’s simple and it will help you learn, once and for all, the difference between a clove hitch, a running hitch and a snuggle hitch.
