'Knots are one of the currencies of wisdom, and there's nothing more impressive...'Knot Craft' is a gem.'
--sailers.co.uk (December 2009)
'This treasure trove of Des Pawson's personal rope craft recipes contains projects ranging from bellropes...to belts.'
--Fishing News (December 2009)
'Des gives step-by-step instructions on how to put these knots together...just as you would expect from a recipe book...and guidance as to how each project can be the starting point for many other items.'
--Practical Boat Owner (March 2010)
'Most knot enthusiasts aboard smacks and barges sneakily keep one of Des's books in their bunk...but owners of modern yachts will also warm to the knotty problems unlaced by Des, with useful and innovative applications of ropework.'
--Yachting Monthly (March 2010)
'Find projects ranging from fenders and mats to knife lanyards and belts along with background to many more projects.'
--Boat Mart (June 2010)
'opening windows into a craft unbeknown to many. While almost everyone must have tied a knot from time to time, this book takes the reader into a different and unusual world of knots.'
--Nautical Magazine, May 2010
'Des Pawson has dedicated these 96 pages to ambitious ropework, unlikely to be found in many other books. All are works of art with a practical purpose and some, such as rope fenders, could save you money.'
--Yachting Monthly, May 2011
"This shows the author as the quintessential English eccentric. Described as the "guru of knot tying", he is certainly different and this is what gives this book its abundant charm...An amazingly eclectic collection of useful, useless and often very attractive examples of ropework is clearly described." --Ausmarine Book Review (May 2011)

If you want to make lanyards, mats, fenders and many other items this is great.
If you want to learn how to tie the basic knots, this is not the best place to start. However, the author has written guides to knots and knotting as well as another Knot Craft book.
