Knotting Tools Video

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: 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 ( 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.

If you live in the EU zone, then I would say that two good knotting tool suppliers are:
