    Marlin is two strand, twisted, tarred hemp... it is small stuff, used for a variety of things, including mousing shackles, seizing shrouds, knife lanyards and breakout ties for sails.

    Being two strand, it cannot not be spliced in the traditional manner, so it is spliced with three passes through the standing part, like the two passes Opie has shown prior to the bury. It is surprisingly strong, and doesn't reduce the strength of the line much at all.

    So the part thats being called the "locked brummel" is actually a "marlin splice?"

This makes it easier to pull the bury into the line (photos 14 and 15).
    Sometimes I do it before I run the bury, sometimes after.

    Ive found if after you grab the tail of whatever your pulling through, and turn the cut end back into the line prior to pulling through, it goes without much problem.

    Like this...



    Instead of this..

    The entyre eye splice is the "Locked Brummel", short for "Locked Brummel Splice". The method of locking is a Marlin splice, prior to the bury.

    - MacEntyre, belaying that!

    Locked Brummell Splice, using only one rope end.

    Hey Opie, found a good one for you (and any others who like a good challenge). Try your hand at a locked brummel when you only have access to one end of the rope. Step 8 is key- make you flip identicle to the image. Instructions below can be accessed directly from New England Ropes:Brummell (Single Braid Eye Splice) Instructions

    A "Locked Brummell Splice" may be made, using only one end of the rope, in most soft Hollow Braids, or "Cover Only" constructions using the following splice procedure:

    1) From end of rope measure back 1-1/4 full fid lengths (see Fid Measurement Table) and make Mark "A".
    Measure Eye size from A. to B.
    Using masking tape place a wrap of tape (2”) on the end of the core tail.
    Taper this by cutting the end at a 45 degree angle.


    2) Pass end through Center of rope at Mark A.


    3) Pull end up tight


    4) Pull end hard to roll “inside-out” at Mark A.


    5) Now pass end through center of rope at Mark B. (in same direction as before).


    6) Pull A all the way thru and pull tight


    7) You now have points A.&B. rolled inside-out.


    8) Now Un - Roll point A. working rope up and through point A. in direction shown.


    9) Pull point B. all the way through A.


    10) Now Un-roll Point B. working short end up & through Point B. , in direction shown.


    11) Pull short end up -while pulling the standing end down as shown.


    12) Continue to close-up locked Brummell Splice


    13) Finally, bury tail into standing end.

    Nice job.

    Doesn't the Locked Brummel derate the rope more than a straight bury?
    Info from Samson on whoopie load derating can be found here.

    Let the challenge lie between your hands and the rope. I would never pass insult on a master! Hah-hah.

    Oh, and by the way, thanks for the instructional on the Brummel. Came out great!
