How To Make An Eye Splice


This video highlights a sleek loop that you can use for snares and tent hooks/pegs along with other applications. Paul does a good job of explaining how to make this version of a simple eye splice in your natural fibered cord.

If you need some to practice with I highly suggest juke twine its an inexpensive cord you can find in the miscellaneous isle at your local market or check the link to amazon:

    i learned that from a guy on youtube called Colhane. he does mission work in Brazil, but he didn’t show the fraying of the cordage at the end. great vid.

    Nice! I have since figured out your method and I like it a lot more becasue it is WAY stronger… thanks for spreading the knowledge!

  7. I had missed the first part of the video as I had the sound off…

  8. I just watched this video and thought, “Hey that looks just like the one I do!” Then I read the comments. I normally use the doubled over end of hand made cordage for this splice and pass the free end through it for added strength. I like the way you got rid of the last little bit. Very clear instruction.

    Yeah I agree… he does a great job and presents a lot of cool techniques…

  10. Colhane has some very good videos.
    This splice is good for an improvised bow string also.
