This is the second marlin spike I have made and the first one was a bit of a surprise commission for a bladesmith.
But this one isn't for a sailor but a wilderness adventurer; a bushcrafter!
This one I forged from 410 stainless steel and it has a shackle key, too; all hardened to cope with the stresses and strains of its working life.
A moulded, hand made leather sheath to keep it in completes the package.
All finished with the usual Green Man Knives finesse.
