Cool! I remember tying many of those knots in Coast Guard Boot Camp. I can still tie some of them. Fun stuff!

Bookmarked!!! Good find. :cheers:

I had that knot set back in the day. Pretty useful, actually. Especially in the Scouts.

What's good about this site is not only does it show every knot that you can think of, but it also shows how the knot is to be tied - really great info here...

Bowline, half hitch, butterfly loop, lark's head and the pipe hitch have gotten me through almost every situation. I haven't memorized any new ones since I learned those.

Yeah, only use/remember a handful of knots but have built foot bridges and a 2 story lookout tower back in the day. The tower, did bolt the logs together after initial rope only assembly.

Bottom line, good to know which knots to use when one's safety/life depends on it.

A bowline/alpine butterfly/trucker's hitch type knot is a good setup to learn, it makes for nice tight ropes for tying down loads or hanging tarps or whatnot.
