Traditional fids are heavy and awkward for lightweight projects and this Fid is the perfect tool for your marlinspike project
The stainless steel fid is grooved to allow slipping the line through any opening created by the fid, an ingenious idea. The Fid is capped with a 7-strand Turk's head knot.

What is the Bosun's Pipe or Boatswain's Call? For starters, the Boatswain, or Bosun, is in charge of the deck crew. The Bosun's Pipe, sometimes referred to as a Boatswain's whistle, is infamously known for its shrill sound, which can be heard over the noise of high winds and heavy seas and is used for signaling the crew.
