The Captain Curry Marlin Spike is manufactured from marine grade stainless steel with a handy shackle key in the handle
Supplied in a useful leather sheath
Ideal for undoing tight shackles and splicing rope and wire

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.
