Complete Knot List at: KNOTS 3D REVIEWS ---------------------- Superb in every way - 5 Stars! I'm a fairly handy guy (surgeon) and rely on several knots in my practice. Nevertheless I'm pretty hopeless at learning new knots and remembering them, even though I'm a sailor and do some fishing. Knots 3D is the answer. I love every aspect of the app. Great App - 5 Stars! I really like this app, I have four knot apps, and I use this one the most. As a firefighter rope skills is a must and this app helps keep me "knot prepared". The zoom and step through the knot using a finger gestures is real handy. The author updates this app with new knots often. I recommend this app.



  • The best app!

    I freakin love this 3D Knots app! I've never been good at tying knots, really never been taught (no pun intended), but now I can learn them when I need them! Very cool animated instructions with the ability to adjust the 360* viewing area. Great job!!
  • A pleasure to use.

    By Mrdavid5150
    Some knots I’ll never need but are nice to see. On the other hand, most are knots I’ve either always wished I knew how to tie, or have always wanted to use. Thank you for taking the time to put these into an app. Thank you!
  • Fantastic resource!!

    By ffembrrt
    Excellent resource! As a firefighter, I have often gone to this app to refresh and search out new knots that can be used for various situations. I’ve also submitted request for knots not in the library and have always received positive responses from the developer. Keep up the good work!!

    Very well done app that has led me into some knots I’d not imagined before. I agree there should be a tightening sequence, if it’s appropriate.
