 The TREE CLIMBER'S KNOT BOOK by Dirk Lingens.
German arborist and self-confessed "knot junkie", Dirk Lingens, has collected and recorded knots common in arboriculture use. In addition he has added the new, exotic and uncommon knots, some of which are published here for the first time. Where else can you find a Distel hitch compared to a Schwabian Prusik? Also, you'll learn more about the knots you already know. Lingens' comparisons of similar knots and application recommendations are particularly helpful.
This book is essential for the tree climbing or rigging arborist and useful for anyone else with an interest in knots.
Soft cover, 88 pages.
