The D-SPLICER set can almost be called a classic since it was introduced a few years ago and sold around the world to sailors and riggers. With an aluminum handle and replaceable needles in different sizes, it is a great tool for splicing ropes. Make sure to use the matching needle size to the rope diameter and only clamp just the tip of the rope between the double wire needle. Occasionally needles can break, but when used in the right manner they last very long.

D-SPLICER ceramic knife makes it easy to cut ropes made out of high-tech fibers like HMPE, Dyneema® or Stirotex®. The knives stay sharp very long and can cut the thickest ropes. Although make sure to handle them gently as it were a tea cup… after all, they are ceramic!
This knife should be part of every rigger’s and sailor’s toolbox with splicing tools.
When rope splicing it can be very difficult to pull through a rope. Even a D-SPLICER pulling fid will not always do the job as more strength needs to be applied and/or there is not enough space.
A Softfid is another great innovation by D-SPLICER. Simple and effective! You first pull through the thin Dyneema rope and then clamp the rope into the white cover. By pulling the Softfid, the cover will tighten itself around the rope.
We call it the F-serie D-SPLICER. A serie of three needles with fixed handles. Comes in diameters of 15, 20 and 25 mm. Whilst the original D-SPLICER set has spare needles and a tube for easy storage, the fixed needles are low weight and ready to use.
D-SPLICER now sells the new D-16. These scissors have all the features you need to cut the world’s strongest fibres like Dyneema, Spectra and Aramid. The blades are made of high carbon stainless and have special modified angles for easy controlled cutting.
