About this product
- DescriptionFeatures of this work include: over 200 tying techniques comprehensively illustrated in step-by-step photographs; all the key kt types covered: bends, hitches, bindings, loops, mats, plaits, rings and slings; kt categories include angling and fishing, boating and sailing, caving and climbing, general purpose and outdoor pursuits; information on cord and rope fibres, and an invaluable table charting the qualities and breaking strengths of each; and, over 1,200 colour photographs. There are several thousand kts in existence and an almost infinite number of variations of these. This reference manual and practical handbook presents over 200 kts, illustrating how to tie them in step-by-step photographs and clear, detailed text. These include familiar kts, such as the simple overhand or thumb kt, but there are also more challenging kts. Each set of instructions is clearly written and accompanied by precise photographs that take you through every step of tying the kt. Whether you are an eager beginner or a lifelong devotee of the satisfying art of kt-tying, this handbook will prove an absorbing and indispensable guide.
