Great post, Nazgul!

 

I think this would make an EXCELLENT contest, for people to correctly name each knot!!!

If you want to know alot more about other types of knots and the basic ones as well there is an awesome book that I bought back when I was in the Navy. It is written by Clifford w Ashley. It is 8" by11". It is called "The Ashley Book of Knots". There is a total of 610 pages in this book. It not only shows you the basic knots but also shows you all the types of knots that he found that was used throughout history. You can make alot of things with this book, form normal bracelets to jacobs ladders and even rope weapons. It will also show you how to splice line as well as backsplice line. This is a very good book and I highly suggest you get this. It will give you more ideas of ways to tie things up and make things as well out of all types of rope and line like the old native americans and old time sailors from way back. You will love this book. :thumbup:

This will sound stupid: but do we need that many knots?

I mean can't you use a basic knot for everything? :/
