Swedish Fids – Two Sizes

Swedish Fids - Two SizesHigh quality traditional Swedish Fids, made from stainless steel with a fine wooden handle. Excellent tool for splicing and rope work. While initially intended for 3-strands, inserted in to the lay of the rope the hollow section of the fid allows many types of rope strands to be pulled through.

These types of fids are also effective for opening up hollow braid rope to make a brummel splice, moving the rope down the side before tightening it up again.

We sell smaller fids (4mm and 5.5mm) also seperately.

If you want to splice smaller diameters up to 4mm, we advise you to use the D-SPLICER.
