    Thanks for this great service. I have used it every day for the last 2 weeks to learn most of the knots you have on your site. I've referred several friends and brothers to your site. Your animations are the easiest method I've used to learn knots. I'd love to see more additions. Please keep it up!!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your knot website is an answer to my prayers. I was a Scouter for 13 years, and wish this site was available then. I have spent many hours teaching my sons and other Boy Scouts the proper way to tie the knots, that you so nicely illustrate. I am now a vertical caver, and am into Cave Rescue. Your Climbing, and Rescue pages have been very useful in training new people whose lives including my own, and others often depend on their ability to tie knots properly.

    Your site is amazing. I was actually looking for tutorials on splicing (which you don't seem to have many of) - but! - your site is the best overall rope, knots and splicing site I've seen to date.

    My highest compliments to you for your work in putting the site together. It is one of the best, if not the very best, site I have ever visited. Thanks for your work.

    Congratulations on such an ambitious site - and on gaining such a high traffic ranking

    A word of praise for your fine work. I'm a nordic ski patroller and will recommend this site for training our new patrollers. This is the best around!

    This has got to be THE BEST site I have ever seen when it comes to rope and knots! Keep up the good work guys!

    I think this site is great, very well done and very informative.

    Absolutely Mucking Afazing! I lead Cub Scouts for 10 years, I do wish we had this site then. And your Stereo site, I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven. Now my hubby sees what I see when I stare at our bathroom tiles - 4 different layers - thank you. It was brilliant. Damn good work.
