"Marginal"

Write your review here: This fid is inexpensive, but it is also cheap the edges of the sheet metal are a little rough. Since it is stainless steel, I can clean it up without much trouble, but I shouldn't have to. However it's easier to do that than to pay to return this (and it's smaller mate) and finding a better one elsewhere.

Write your review here: I used the Large Swedish Fid to make a 3 strand eye splice on a 1 1/2" diameter manila rope. The knot and rope Fid worked great and was very economical. I first used electrical tape to wrap the ends but afterwards I removed the tape and finished with #8 whipping twine.

Product Details
These are stainless steel Swedish fids. They are used primarily for separating the strands of three strand rope in order to make a splice.

Even though it is a pretty basic tool, they are invaluable for doing three strand splices. This version is the larger size of the small Swedish fid featured on the previous page. In our shop we use these almost exclusively on large diameter 3 strand, but we also put them to use doing locking brummel splices on Tenex rope sized 5/8 and up.

So basically, if you are going to be doing large diameter 3 strand or 8 strand splicing then you got to have one of these.

  • 11" overall length
  • 1 1/4" wide at the widest point and tapering down to the point
  • Best for rope 1" and up in diameter.
