It's truly amazing how many people out there these days don't know the difference between even a square knot, and a granny knot.
Well, I can tell you the difference.
One holds, the other doesn't.
One can save you, the other can injure or kill you given the right/wrong circumstances.

I know quite a bit about common knots, lashings, splicing etc.
And I've found this knowledge to be very useful in everyday situations.
