This -- with Chapman's Piloting and Chappelle's Boatbuilding -- was one of the most important tomes of my formative years. Mine was destroyed (with hundreds of other significant books) when the Folk School basement flooded three years ago. It's now hard to find and comes dear. I lucked into an affordable copy a few weeks ago. It arrived today and has never been cracked. I'll see you all in a few days! #knots #alltheknots #maritime #marine #marlinespike #marlinspikeseamanship #seamanship

So grateful for good friends old & new. @jenimclaughlinart is a new friend, and definitely appreciated. They swung by the shop to pick up this one-of-a-kind salvaged polypropylene soft shackle bracelet. I'm hoping to put something like it into production in the future, but for now this baby is it! That there pelican clip style sure is available though; brass on waxed cotton, showing a solid few months of continuous wear.....

Playing with rope and learning how to make a bellrope during this weekend's class @maiwaschooloftextiles with Tim Whitton.
These photos show a bit of the progression of the final knot, the knob knot at the bottom.

My first piece using my new @mikko.snellman "spid", and it's as perfect as my skill will allow. What a pleasure it was to use. Being smaller than my previous spike I am able to hold it while still knotting, so it is always in hand and ready. The blued steel is so smooth it slides through cord beautifully. So obviously designed and crafted by someone who knows his craft. Love the duck bill shape too. #knotart #craft #marlinespikeseamanship #marlinespike #fid #handmade #bellrope.

What a treasure! This was a belated Father's Day gift to myself. Beautifully hand crafted by @mikko.snellman. He calls these tools "spids" as they are neither a Marline spike or a fid, but a cross between the two. Perfect for fine knotting work and fits the hand like a dream. Can't wait to use it!! Beautifully packaged as well! #handcrafted #marlinespike #knotterslife #knotart
