Sailmaker's Needle - Large
3.5" long sailmaker's needle.
These high-quality steel needles can be used for lock-stiching or whip-stitching a splice in larger ropes. Ideal for working on Tenex or large diameter double-braid splices.
This larger of the two sailmakers' needles can be used similarly to a Marlin Spike to extract the core of a rope in a pinch, but over time is not an ideal substitute.
