Knots Gallery - Page 1

This page is dedicated to the art of tying knots. Most of them are quite commonly used aboard or related to the sea - fishing and that sort of thing. All the knots are animated and hence move by themselves, showing you how they are constructed. If more information is required on these knots, The Ashley Book of Knots by Clifford Ashley is a great source of information.
