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.
