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 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.
