Editorial Reviews

Review

PROKNOT summarizes basic outdoor knots on six plastic cards that weigh less than an ounce for the set. -- Backpacker Magazine, September, 2000

Waterproof and durable. --Outside Magazine, June 1999

From the Publisher

Even if you already have a good knot book, the PROKNOT cards make a great field reference that is waterproof and nearly indestrucable! These cards are used for training by the US Departmant of Defense, Municipal Fire Departments, Boy Scout Troops, and Search and Rescue groups. Even arborist companies (for their tree climbers) use them! Being able to take these little cards out into the elements to refer to them when you need to know that knot is a real benefit.

Pro-Knot: Best Rope Knots by John Sherry is an excellent resource to learn to tie common knots in a small, convenient, and easy to use format. It comes with six double sided waterproof cards that are attached by a rivet to hold them together. On each card is the name of the knot, a brief description, and a diagram. The version that I have includes the following 15 knots:

1. Bowline
2. Tautline Hitch
3. Square Knot
4. Water Knot
5. Buntline Hitch
6. Rolling Hitch
7. Clove Hitch
8. Constrictor Knot
9. Sheet Bend
10. Doubled Sheetbend
11. Double Fisherman's
12. Trucker's Hitch
13. Figure Eight
14. Mooring Hitch
15. Bowline on a Bight

If you are new to knots and want to learn the basics then Pro-Knot is a good starting point. Carrying these cards along with some paracord allows you to practice anywhere to improve your knot skills. If you learn the majority of knots listed on these cards you will be well ahead of most people with your knowledge of knots. If you really get into knots there are tons of books and resources available to advance your skills even further. If you have difficulty understanding the diagram you can go to YouTube and usually find a video showing how to tie the knot. Also, the Pro-Knot website has video and instructions on how to tie most of these knots. Once you get the idea you can then use these cards as a reminder if needed.

If you go camping, backpacking, or hiking you should always have rope and a set of these cards with you during your adventures. They also make a great addition to any everyday carry (EDC) bag or bug out bag (BOB) that you may have for an emergency. Knowing which knot to use for a particular situation is a great asset to have in your tool kit. Having this knowledge can make your adventure easier and safer by using the correct knot.

I highly recommend Pro-Knot: Best Rope Knots as a valuable piece of gear to have in your kit.

Great product!!!

This is a handy little reference. It's about the size of a credit card, but twice as thick. Suitable for a wallet or pocket.

There are six cards, double-sided, and some two knots, for a total of 15 knots. The cards are fastened together, so there's no chance you'll lose one of them.

I'm just getting started learning knots, and I have tried a few of these. So far this has been a good help. This will be handy to have around. With practice, I'll have a few of these committed to memory.

I've been carrying this around with two 24" lengths of paracord to practice/learn knots in my free time. It's been perfect for that. The only thing someone could complain about is the choices of knots and that their favorite knot isn't included. Since these cards got me interested in knots, I've learned several that aren't in these cards and probably would have made different choices for what to include. Specifically, these cards don't include any instructions lashings, and could have done without the half-page used for the rolling hitch with the 3 other hitches included.

That's just nit-picking though. Overall these cards are an excellent introduction or refresher for knot tieing.

The booklet is perfect for attaching to a backpack. The illustration is simple & also tells you which knots are best to use in a situation requiring tying knots. A must for anyone camping outdoors in a tent or mountain climbing.

I ordered this mainly to learn some Knots. This is nice to throw in the backpack and take out for a camping trip. Use the examples to try out some knots.
Good product. Very useful.

I'm not sure all of the illustrations are detailed enough to teach you how to tie a knot you are not familiar with, but once you have learned how to tie a specific knot, these waterproof plastic cards are a very handy way to refresh your memory. For boaters this is especially handy because there are useful boating knots and you don't have to worry about getting these wet.
