Someone mentioned using the belay pin for a weapon, that is exactly the reason I asked the question.

Where are you sailing off to  ???

Possibly the land of knots and bruises  :D. Not sure if the guy who wants the pins plans to use them on me, or someone else.  ;D

Belaying pins are still used on some modern warships - for things such as the signal flag lines. However, they now tend to be brass rather than wood.

Someone mentioned using the belay pin for a weapon, that is exactly the reason I asked the question. I have a gentleman wanting me to turn one for him and I needed reference pictures. I found by not knowing the proper term, I could not find pictures.

A good history lesson is always appreciated. 8)  Now, belay this, where is my cake?  ;D

Thanks everyone.



My image of a belaying pin comes from old sea movies as does the image of the pin being used in a fight.  Possibly a movie like "Men Who Go Down to the Sea in Ships'.

What I remember of the pin is that the top or heavier part started with a hemispherical knob that tapered down a bit to a flange and below the flange a longer taper that would fit into a tapered socket in the rail of the ship.  The lower taper would be pounded into the rail so that a line could be run under the rail and secured to the top of the pin with a cinch.

 

 

 

Guess I was wrong about the lower taper.

That was actually the first thing you turned in shop when I was in the 1oth grade. A mallet, or the 2 parts being the second. Never got hit by one though!
