Top 10 Knots-2.jpg

While there are literally thousands of knots, in reality a person can probably get by with about ten good knots committed to memory. Even in this day of straps with buckles and bungee cord, knot tying is still a key outdoor skill that at a minimum can make your life easier and at times could even save a life in a survival situation requiring first aid or rescue work. The knots in this top ten knots section make for a good selection that should cover most situations. Included are three knots to make a loop, four hitching knots and three ways to join two ropes (Bends).
