For splicing, the marlin spike is inserted into laid rope and levers open a strand to form a hole, allowing larger access into the lay.

Marlin spikes are very handy for untying knots that have tightened up under tension.

A very tight knot can be very difficult  to undo without a spike.

Used in conjunction with a marlinspike hitch, the spike can form a handle to comfortably produce more tension on a rope than by gripping with the hand alone.
