Good illustrations, but horrible translations. The menu could do with thumbnail overviews.
nice apps very useful
Translation Problem Good variety of knots, but needs to have some better English translation & names of the same knots. Like the grassy knot is called a Cerrick Bend in Alaska or was in the 70's, when we needed to join two shots (predetermined lengths) so we could launch our King crab pots in deeper water. Easily untied after being pulled up from 100 fathoms if you needed to add more, or less.
Decent knots, horrible translation Looks like a machine translation from russian to english with classic errors like "onions" instead of "bow". A distinctly russian version of nautical knots with some unusual regional knots. Not good for instruction, due to the poor translation and a persistently ambiguous style of presentation (often 2 related knots listed under one name), but interesting for researching russian sailors' methods.
I can't rate any better... The translation is so beyond confusing (at one point I was reading about an archer who hangs on to onions?). The descriptions are absolute gibberish, and some of the advise is horrible and dangerous (there shouldn't be a single rescue worker or firefighter alive that uses a slipknot to lower a person down), and a good majority of the knotwork shown has just been renamed to make it look like there are more knots than there actually are (I.e. the cat's paw, and daisy chain, etc...)
