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.

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.
We have uploaded new videos with instructions on our products on our YouTube channel.
D-SPLICER has a range of extra long needles for professional riggers. Being approximately 50 cm (~20 inch) long , they prove to be helpful for many jobs. The needles come in three sizes (1.5, 2.0 & 2.5 mm thick) for different diameter ropes. Essential to have in your riggingdepartment, workshop and toolbox.
Check out more information on these fids in the video below.
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.
Splicing ropes can be tough when a rope is tightly braided or has little space. A SoftFid is an ideal solution in those cases. It can be easily applied with a D-SPLICER pulling fid. The core can then be pulled through. If more power is needed, one could even use a winch for this purpose. Watch this video by Premium Ropes how to use the SoftFid.
