3 Key Outfitters Marine Rigging Spike

Outdoors marlinspike
All of 3 Key Outfitters’s marlinspikes are made by hand one at a time.

The Marine Rigging Spike, aka “the Missus,” is 3 Key Outfitters‘s take on the classic marlinspike. Made of 80CRV2 and coming in at roughly HRC 60, these spikes get full heat-treating and tempering, just like 3 Key Outfitters‘s knives.

As a nice touch, there is a handle wrap for texture on the non-business end and a bio-resin seal under the wrap to help prevent rusting.

The MRS is the perfect tool for ropes and knots. It works as a universal awl, carpenter scribe, a knife hone and a hanger nail. Plus, all spikes come with a custom cap to protect the point.

  • MSRP: $30
  • Steel: 80CRV2
  • Overall Length: 6” or 8”
  • Thickness: .25”
  • Grip: Cord wrap sealed in bio-resin
