Splice larger lines with the help of a large handle.

Having the right tool for the job can make all the difference. Splicing large three strand line takes effort and some strength; the larger strands are tightly twisted and difficult to separate. Using our T-handle Dorham fid gives you the leverage needed to separate the strands. Make tucking each strand easier by inserting the flat wedge shaped fid between the strands then twisting the handle to create an opening large enough to pull through the strand. The comfortable handle of this bronze fid allows you to use larger muscle groups to reduce fatigue. This handy tool is compatible with lines up to 1". Put your arm into it when splicing larger three strand line by using a West Marine Dorham T-handle fid.
