Cut Splice

The original name of this splice included the letter ‘n’! I first discovered it, with its unexpurgated original old english spelling, whilst reading Patrick O’Brian’s Master and Commander fantastic 22 book series.

We are featuring the first of his novels in the series in this month’s Mariners Book Shelf. It’s an excellent splice for creating an eye in the rope without the use of knots.
