Knots, Splices and Rope Work

Knots, Splices and Rope Work has consistently been in the top 100 of the Education category in the iTunes Store since release and has appeared in the top 100 overall.

‘Knots, Splices and Rope Work’ is based on the original 1917 classic treatise by A. Hyatt Verrill, the renowned American inventor, author, illustrator, archaeologist, explorer, zoologist and friend of former US President Theodore Roosevelt.

This App will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts, scouts, sailors, rockclimbers, bushwalkers, fishermen and anyone interested in exploring the use and history of knots. This App includes scrollable text of descriptions and 154 diagrams of classic knots, splices and rope work to help you learn and practice the art of knot making.

This app was featured as one of the top 25 Outdoor Apps by The Adventure Life Website.

“How much of an outdoor geek are you? The test is whether you think this app rocks. I do, so capital G for me. What is it? It’s a copy of the 1917 guidebook by outdoorsman A. Hyatt Verrill, which outlines 154 knots, splices, and tangled messes of cord. It’s filled with old school writing and illustrations that never go out of style, and the content is every bit as valuable today as the guidance in ‘Freedom of the Hills’.”
