Splicing video

WX is cr@p today so was playing with rope instead. This is a nice video with a slightly different take on making an eye splice - thought I would share...

I am probably being slow, being a Sunday morning, but that's the way I've always done an eye splice. What's the other way?

I meant to say, if anyone has a link to a technique for "four strand" splicing techniques, I'd appreciate it

There's something very therapeutic about splicing! I would like to learn more than the basic 3 strand ones too

I've seen the two on youtube. That Irish one looks fine but it's not appropriate for what I'm doing - one to remember though. There's a Portuguese one too on there, right technique but out of focus using same coloured hemp and I don't speak Portuguese!
