Marine nodes

Морские узлы, 10 узлов, которые пригодятся в реальной жизни

Not many of us go hiking, climb trees or mountains, and engage in other types of extreme tourism.

But many were faced with the fact that when this happens, there is always a lack of necessary skills for this.

One of the most useful is the ability to tie knots that are durable and suitable for each individual task.

Such skills can save lives, protect against injuries, and help to survive.

We read and study the selection of nodes and remember new skills!

Blind loop

Узел Глухая петля

Simple and quick to tie knot. It is used in tying a rope around a tree or tying items with holes.

Classic straight knot
