    This site is wonderful, I teach a Pioneering weekend for boy scouts and this will come in handy for training, and retraining my staff. Keep up the good work.

    This has got to be one of the most useful sites I've found. I immediately bought the app for my iPhone. Great work and thanks!

    I'm not sure where you got the inspiration or the resources to put together such a wonderful knot learning tool but it is simply amazing! The animation on the truckers hitch is PHENOMENAL! Good work! Kudos! And my most sincere thank you for all the work you put into this.

    I have very few daily needs for knots. The bowline is the most complicated I ever remembered from my college Sunfish sailing days. Your site, however, has inspired me to master at least a few more. It's clean elegant design, fantastic animations and authoritative commentary is simply amazing. I work in website maintenance and see many sites (as research) and strive to encourage my client's content providers to make websites like yours. Keep up the great site, and be sure that when I need a good knot, I will have learned from you.

    What a fantastic site you have, my son came home from cubs tonight full of knots so to speak. Coming from a farming back ground I've used rope and knots all my life however many are now long forgotten so jumped on google and found your site. Top marks! I was looking forward to teaching him some knots, and you have made it sooooo much easier.
