Short biography
Geoffrey Budworth - Geoff’s awareness of the significance of knotting characteristics to help in solving crime was developed on the River Thames when he was a Metropolitan Police Inspector. Utilizing this knowledge of knots and also recreational knots used in climbing and sailing, has resulted in several books being written, specifically for the purpose of training and assisting police in forensic work. In 1982 the Metropolitan Police Forensic Science laboratory in London published ‘Identification of Knots’ by Geoffrey Budworth. His work was also written up in the Journal of the Forensic Science Society in 1982. A further book followed in 1985 being ‘Knots and Crime’. A prolific writer of knotting books, Geoff Budworth has subsequently written some of the best books available, relating to practical tying of knots and decorative rope work.

He is the co-founder of the International Guild of Knot Tyers. [from The Complete Book of Decorative Knots (1998)]
