This is our Marine Rigging Spike (MRS) and we just call it “the Missus.”  Made of 80CRV2 and comes in at HRC 60+.  Our spikes get placed through the same heat-treat process as a knife, full heat-treat and tempering cycles.  There’s a handle wrap for texture on the non-business end and (of course) a bio-resin seal under the wrap to help prevent any rusting.

The MRS is good for ropes and knots, works as a universal awl, carpenter scribe, a knife hone and hanger nail.  This splits up wood for kindling better than a wedge.  If you don’t believe me, ask a wood pecker.  You can get more uses from a well heat-treated spike at half the weight.

One thing I learned while growing up in the country, the easiest way to skin a catfish or a snake (or slippery sucker) is to nail them to a log or to a tree.  This is just the tool for the job.
