More Information

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

Marlin spikes may be required to untie knots that tighten up under tension.

A very tight knot becomes impossible to pick apart without the spike, which may be slipped between the various pieces of line.

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.
