Choose from 129 different knots and see how they're tied in incredible detail. Watch the knot draw itself or use your finger to tie and untie the knot.

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.

    This app has more knots than I need to know. It does have all the knots that I have become accustomed to using for climbing. I have picked up a few others that may be useful as time will tell. I’m glad that I have downloaded this app. Very nice reference tool.
  • Best knot app

    I was a little disappointed overall. Thought I would learn a little more from this app. The knots are never finished, and no opinion, recommendation, or detail on tightening the knot. Yes you just pull it, but no direction whether you pull the tag or standing part, or tips to ensure the knot lays correctly. Knot slips, lose big fish, no big deal. Knot slips, lose person or property, big deal. Be helpful if you could reverse demos as well.
  • Very handy app. Thanks for the great work

    I have many knot books, including the Ashley Book of Knots, but this app is what I always go to. It has most every knot I need and the library is constantly expanding. The animations are simple, detailed, and easy to follow. One of the most important things for me about this app is that I can use it offline, so when I am out fishing or hunting with no signal, I still have my library of knots.

    I was never great at learning or remembering how to tie knots, other than on my shoelaces. This is an great go-to aid with easy to follow animations that you can speed up or slow down.
