It it comes to knotwork, you really don’t need anything fancy, just a good knife and something with a bit of a point on it to help with those fiddly bits. However for me, I do love my tools. I thought that my Marlin Spike was rather fancy, that was until I came across this little beauty. Not only does this Steampunk Marlin spike look good, but it is also a rather marvelous bit of engineering.

I hope that you enjoy this short video, you will see that the actual internals of this marlin spike actually move. I really wish that I had the engineering skills to produce something so wonderful.
