Overview

Practical Knots and Ropework by Percy W. Blandford


In this thoroughly modern guide, author Percy W. Blandford focuses on styles in use today, many tailored to new synthetic ropemaking materials. He untangles the secrets behind a fascinating array of knots, including:
Basic knots, from common bends to bowlines
Joining knots, including the "weaver's," "surgeon's," and "thief" knots
Running and multiple loops
Fisherman's and climber's knots
... plus many other varieties, as well as the best way to secure loops, rings, and hitches. A detailed look at splicing ranges from fundamentals to methods for use with braided rope and wire. More than 290 diagrams appear throughout the text, illustrating the step-by-step formation of every knot.
