How Do All ;-)
I just finished covering a set of Gripfids for a customer in Switzerland.
The tools are 6mm, 8mm and 10mm diameter, suitable for up to 4mm, 6mm and 8mm cords respectively,
The tools have a solid Maple handle, covered with a beautiful Pineapple knot.
The smallest is a 35p x 30b, 5 Pass, Type 5 Pineapple knot, the next is a 36p x 32b, 4 Pass, Type 4 Pineapple knot, and the largest is a 45p x 40b, 5 Pass, Type 5 Pineapple knot.
A close up of the Pineapple knot handles.
I made some Pojama's (covers) for the Gripfids from odd ends of climbing rope with the core stripped out.
practical or not? who knows ;-)
