Named as a nod to The Walking Dead character Rick Grimes, you might not end up using the Grimes Spike to kill zombies, but you will find it to be an invaluable tool. Hand machined from _" diameter brass titanium, the Grimes Spike can be used in marine ropework by aiding in unlaying rope for splicing, untying knots, drawing marline tight using a marlinspike hitch, and as a toggle joining ropes under tension in a belaying pin splice. A great addition to your camping gear or tackle box, the Grimes Spike comes with a lanyard and copper lanyard bead.
