I have put together a short video on knotting tools, actually it’s really a delve into my ditty bags and see what tools I have. If you are looking for a post that deals with all knotting tools then I am afraid this is not really for you.
I mainly specialise in decorative knots, so my tools are mainly for that purpose. Just click on the video below for it to play.
Knotting Tools for Sale
I am often asked where I get my knotting tools from. Many of the standard tools I got from Amazon and you will find them on this page: http://igkt-solent.co.uk/supplies/ However the more specialised or should I say sexy tools are available here:
Knotting Tools America
I personally got my tools from an American guy called PJ (email@example.com) and you can contact him on that address. I am sure that there are other tool makers in the States, but I have not had the privilege of handling them.
The above spike was by PJ and I dressed it. This was taken a few years ago and now the white is no more 😉
Myerchin Marlin Spike
Even though this marlin spike is not as decorative as a custom made marlin spike. Myerchin sell a wonderful stainless steel marlin spike.
|Although not as decorative, Myerchin do make a beautiful Marlin Spike and are readily available.|
Knotting Tools Europe
If you live in the EU zone, then I would say that two good knotting tool suppliers are:
Lasse Carenvall and this is his shop site: LeatherandCordage
He does also make other tools as shown in the picture below:
So why not drop Lasse a line and see what he has to offer?
Mikko Snellman is another maker of fine Knotting Tools and can be contacted here: https://snellman.ax/
