Many scouters appreciate knots that are uniform in size and design, something that is not done well with the knots available from BSA. Another feature that was requested when Venturing began was to have knots that would match the uniform as was done between 1966 and 1979. BSA did not persue that request.
Below are knots that have been requested by scouters over the years. Click on any of the small images to see both my original drawing and the final knot (click anywhere a second time and the window will close). Some are still available on this order form knotOrder.xls.
