    Further to Frank's point, I would suggest adding adding notes on suitability of knots for situations and types of "rope". Other thing that may be useful is the line strength decrease and undoability after loading of each knot.
    Would like to add your suggestions, unfortunately this information has mostly been done on an individual/non scientific basis - more work needs to be done on this by rope manufacturers.

    Minor corrections implemented:
    Page 6 added the letter “r” to: manufacturer
    Page 15 added missing bracket to: (ABoK # 1800)
    Page 24 added missing “be” to: allow the rope to be cut
    Page 27 added “as does the Figure Eight Loop, (see Fig. 24a and 24b)” to:
    the Flemish Bend description.

    Please continue to let me know if you spot any typos/errors.

    Hi All,
    This is just to say that the Knot Booklet is (as I write this) on page 2 and sinking fast.
    Soon no one will know that there is a Knot Booklet available for download.
    Just wanted to remind folks that links (as we all find out when we need them) tend to break eventually.
    If aulro is interested in keeping the Knot Booklet available for future members and those who have not come across it, it should consider keeping a copy (rather than a link) of the booklet in a permanent download section.

    P.S. Always use latest available download, in this case at least, newer is better!

    Not sure if ebooks have new editions or just get updates. Calling it 2.0
    Changes include adding the following knots: Water Knot, Carrick Bend, Highwayman's Hitch and Tumble Hitch. Also added drawings of the Constrictor Knot in the Bight and the Shear Lashing, drawings showing how to join Slings and Recovery Straps and a little info/drawing on Slipped Hitches. Have also polished the text a little.

    P.S. isuzutoo-eh + Grant052 You are welcome.

    In case anyone is thinking of tying a broken Dyneema winch rope together, it can be easily spliced, as shown in the above video.
