Not just for Boy Scouts. Learning to tie the right knot or hitch is a lot of fun, and also a valuable skill to have!
Unable to find a jig kit anywhere with the features I wanted, I decided to make my own. Great for sitting down and practicing the multitude of knots and hitches out there, without having to go outside. You can even watch YouTube tutorials, and practice right at your keyboard! You could make a little display of various knots, like I did, and display it with your favorite gear, place it above your computer monitor, or give as a really unique gift. It's definitely a conversation starter!
Can you name all 11 types knots and hitches in my photo? *HINT* None of them is the bowline.
Plenty of space to work with, so you don't need to be a nimble fingered piano player to appreciate this jig!
*NEW* I now use a heavier, sturdier 1/2 inch plywood base (no more 3/16 redwood. The base is almost 3 times as thick now!) that really helps against tipping while tying knots, and I also use thicker uprights. I have also added a small cleat to the base, so you can practice tying your cleat hitches. Check out the photos!
*Disclaimer* This item does NOT come with paracord. You are ONLY getting the jig itself.
