Having the right tool for the job is imperative. Considering that a large portion of our everyday tasks (from prying to poking) is not meant to be done with a pocket knife, it makes sense to have a dedicated tool for all those jobs that require less finesse and more brute force. And that’s where the Ober Metal Works Hex Marlin Spike glides into play.
While unconventional, the Hex Marlin Spike proves its worth with its diverse applications. It can be used to punch holes into materials, open boxes, make markings on metal or wood, chip hard ground and ice when you’re camping, pry open paint cans and break windows in an emergency. For hardcore EDC fanatics, the Marlin Spike can be used for tying a lanyard bead onto a paracord. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your creativity.
Hand-machined from solid brass stock in the USA, the Ober Metal Works Hex Marlin Spike will eventually develop a beautiful patina with time and use. This admittedly uncommon, yet undeniably functional and versatile tool will definitely be an invaluable addition to any setup.
