Reeds splicing handbook

The Reeds Splicing Handbook was published in June of this year. Featuring D-Splicer ropesplicing tools.

It is the little brother of the ‘Handbook Splicing Modern Ropes’. The author, Jan-Willem Polman, selected the most commonly used rope splicing tutorials. Also, all background information on rope materials has been left out. This resulted in a nicely compact splicingbook. Makes a great gift for sailors.

D-SPLICER needle set

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.

Softfid

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.
