Knotting An extension of his leatherworking skills, Ron Edwards’ expertise with knotting both leather and rope led to the various books on knotting available here. A studio full of all manner of knotted objects hanging from the wall, and sitting on any available surface were testament to the amount of time he devoted to expanding his already vast knowledge on the subject.

  • Knots for Beachcombers and Mariners

    Knots for Beachcombers and Mariners

    A low priced book on a number of interesting knots, including how to replace the coverings on fishing floats, and a number of different ways to cover rails, knife handles, and anything that stays still long enough to cover. Care has been taken not to repeat the knots already shown in the companion volume KNOTS, Useful and Ornamental, so there is a lot of new material in this book (though, for the benefit of those who only want this one book, there is also a section on the most popular knots). 32 pages, 238 drawings, plus 21 silhouettes of sailing rigs, like that below.
