Though at its heart a "How To" manual for tying knots and other shipboard craft, The Marlinspike Sailor, published in 1956, is a life preserver thrown to a vanishing ancient art. A true instant classic, it has become inspiration for the renaissance in sailing known as marlinspike seamanship which has saved and continues to preserve the traditions and crafts of sailing ships. Famous for the clarity of its hundreds of illustrations, The Marlinspike Sailor is the funniest book you'll ever read on knots.

We're offering The Marlinspike Sailor as a kit with the British Navy Knife with the marlinspike for you to enjoy the complete interactive experience.

Book on knots
Reviewed By:   (Stratford, CT) 
Book has some nice history on rope making and knots but falls way short when it comes to showing you how to make knots etc.,much better books out there for that.

I have had and been using this well worn book since 1972. It is great!
