    Thanks for the guide. It worked great. The Lock Brummel is definitely easier than sewing in a thread lock on a "normal" loop bury. Plus it looks quite a bit nicer.

    Does the lock stitch work without a locking thread?

    Not sure what you mean...

    Locking thread?

    The stitching is only needed if you arent using the locked brummel.

    The Locking stitch is another method that was shown in the pictures a couple of posts back.

    I think "locking", in the context of splicing, means to stitch it.

    OTOH, "locking", in the context of stitching, means to double back at the ends.

    Yes it does . No seperate thread stiching is required for it (click on the hyperlinked splice names for step by step instructions).

    Just ensure you are burying a full 2-1/2 fid lengths. (1 fid length = 21 x's rope diameter, or about 7 x's rope circumference ).
