Stainless Splicing Fid
Here is a Stainless steel fid with hardwood handle for making those eye, end, and running splices in twisted line. Hollow backside for ease of threading.
A fid is a tool (basically a somewhat conical hollow spike) that can be fitted over the end of a strand and used to feed it through each loop as needed. It may be required for very tightly wound or large ropes.
