Marino’s Very Own Sailmaker’s Fid
A sailmaker’s fid is a special design, different from a marlinespike sailor’s rope splicing fid. The sailmaker’s fid can serve a sailor but the sailor’s fid is ill-suited to the tapered form required in fidding out hand-worked holes.

The Artful Sailor is proud to offer a true sailmaker’s fid designed by Emiliano Marino and artfully hand-turned by Alex Forbes. All fids are approximately 12" long x 1-1/2" wide and made of high quality hardwoods to last a lifetime. 

Unique in character, no two fids are exactly the same, and each one is a functional work of art. All fids are enhanced by a lanyard and Turk’s head tied out of authentic, tarred Maine codline. Every ditty bag should have a fid!

See Pages 5-6, 19-21, 202-206 in The Sailmaker’s Apprentice for further description and use of a sailmaker’s fid.
