Some better pictures of the bellrope I made a few weeks back. I'm loving these button knots. This one's made with 10 strands and not extended so makes a nice flat covering. #abok #marlinspikeseamanship #knot #knotnerd #knotlife

This should be included in the "respect" list. The legendary Mathew Walker Knot. It's tricky, I get it wrong as often as I get it right. This one thankfully is perfect. Made with 6 strands. #marlinspikeseamanship #knotnerd #ropework #matthewwalkerknot

"A man who can make a Manrope Knot, Star Knot, or Rose Knot is an object of respect." From Fiddlers Green by Wetjen, 1931. This is all three. #knots #knotnerd #abok #marlinspikeseamanship

Do you know what this is? I'm taking the summer off from my adrenaline addiction to start a book (you're probably in it!). One of the things I'm doing when I have a block is learning the art of Marlinspike Seamanship. I'm also 500 pages into Chapman Piloting & Seamanship. (My tan is getting attention too). This was my father's palm, I remember him using it when I was little. #marlinspikeseamanship #marlinspike #boating #yachting #seamanship #sailing #sailmaking

Marlin spike / fid for those who love boating and sailing. Hand-forged carbon steel. Inspired by my childhood love of books about ships and sailing. #sailing #boating #boatinglife #boatinglifestyle #sailingtools #tallship #boatingtools #marlinspike #marlinspikes #marlinspikeseamanship #sealovers #paracordlife #knotting #knottingtool #fid #carbonsteel #handforged
