Hitches: There are at least 30 ways to attach a line to a fixed object. Some are strong while others are secure. What’s the difference? The answer is in the app!

Bends: If you think a sheet bend is all you need to join two lines then think again! Sailors invented the carrick bend, the rigger’s bend and others for very good reasons.

Loops: The bowline may still be the King of Knots, but its tenure is under threat. Find out which are the new loops for new ropes.

Top 10 Knots: The most useful knots to know for quick reference.

Knot Scores
All the knots in this app are awarded a five-part knot score, with their strength, security, ease of tying, ease of untying, and usefulness given a grade from 1–5.

The Knot Bible app is based on The Knot Bible, a book by Nic Compton. Nic's book is the complete and definitive bible of knots for seafarers, featuring over 200 knots.
