Knots and Splices

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Knots and splices include all the various methods of tying, fastening, and joining ropes or cords. Generally, the requirements of a useful knot may be stated to be that it should neither ‘slip’ nor ‘jam’– I. e. that, while it holds without danger of slipping while the strain is on it, when slackened it should be easily untied again. For attaching a small line to a thick rope the becket hitch (17) is very useful."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
