    In my humble opinion, this is one of the best sites on the internet.

    I am a long time student of knots and have been tying decorative and practical knots for 35 years. I also did lots of climbing in my younger days. Your site was sent to me by my old climbing partner and I just wanted to complement you on the best knots website I've seen. Are you into braiding and turk's heads? Anyway just wanted to complement you on a terrific use of technology to bring life to an old craft - congratulations and happy holidays.

    I have used this site several times. As a tradesman(millwright), knot tying is one way to safely secure loads. I recommended the site to our instructors, and it has been an invaluable resource for them! Thank you!

    I've been teaching Tech Theatre and Stage Lighting for 32+ years and NEVER have I seen such an informative source. Your work WILL go into the future with my students...and home with me. Thanks for making my life easier and safer!

    Great website. I just tied my first chain splice ever! And I am 61 years old. I carried my IPad down to my Marina on the Mississippi River near LeClaire, IA. Piece of cake. The old knot was only holding by one strand. I saved about $400 by not purchasing a new pre-tied rode.

    Hey good job on this site. It is most definitely one of a kind. I just wanted to say I'm a Baltimore county firefighter who is curently in a rescue technician ropes class and your site is making knot tying very easy. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you so much! You give fantastic directions, and BTW, I love your site. I'm going to forward it to everyone I know. Thanks again. Katie
