Stainless steel Marlinspike. Used for working ropes and knots. 

Comes untied. Tie your own Turk's Head with the included 10' of paracord (Color of included paracord may vary). 


If "TIE THE TURK'S HEAD KNOT FOR ME" is selected, your marlinspike will ship with the Turk's head knot tied, with the ends secured with cyanoacrylate glue. This will prevent the Turk's head from coming undone under heavy use. You will still receive 10' of cord with your order. 


Approximate dimensions: 1/2" x 6/1/4" (13mm x 159mm)

Weight: 3.6 oz

If you add Paramax, leave your color choice in the comment on checkout.

    This is a well-made piece of steel. The Turk's head is tightly made. It will give me a lifetime of use.

    Good tool.

    Posted by Don Powers on Jun 7th 2024

    Good metal. Effective taper 3" long. The handle is 2 1/2" long. You can nest the Turk's head between your 3rd and 4th finger. Works well with your paracord and other ropes to 3/8" diameter. Bigger ropes, you probably want a longer tool. Tool diameter is 1/2".

    I had this cheap one and it always felt like it was going to snap. This marlinspike has some heft to it! Super solid and well made.

    Marlin Spike

    I love my marlin spike. It's at an unbeatable price so I ordered a spare one in case I lose it. The Turks head knot helps a lot with the grip also.

    Very Nice!

    Posted by John on May 24th 2024

    I received the marlinspike very quickly after ordering! The packaging was well done, and it included a good amount of red paracord so I was able to make multiple attempts of tying a decorative knot on the pommel end. I wasn't satisfied with the turkshead knot as I couldn't get it to nestle into the groove, so I finally went with a three-pass inline Matthew Walker Knot. The spike is well made and a good weight and length for use with paracord. I would have liked to have a hole in the pommel for attaching a lanyard, but that's a minor thing. I guess I'll have to work something into the knot!

    1/2” marlin spike

    Posted by Mike on May 20th 2024

    Nicely tapered spike. Good weight and feel. Tip is not made super sharp to make it easier to separate paracord without stabbing yourself. Tip size is perfect 1/64” to 1/32”. The 1/2” spike will work great for my projects as I do a lot ok tight 550 paracord projects.
