SMHAEN Thread Splitter


Product Description

Smhaen Thread Splitter

Splitting a single ply thread into two strands, allows the tyer to place materials such as deer hair, hackle barbs, and dubbing to be placed between the strands. Once the materials is inserted, spin the bobbin holder to tighten the thread around the materials, then rap it around the hook shank. Splitting a thread has usually been done with a very pointed thin needle. The thread is flattened with the help of one's finger nail, and then the needle is pushed through the thread. This gets more difficult the finer the thread is.

With the SMHAEN thread splitter, this is no longer a problem. It does not matter if it is a thick or thin thread. The SMHAEN thread splitter does both easily. It has a smooth edge and a small knob on the end of the needle make it possible to split the thread. Flatten the thread on the shaft of the needle. Slide the thread to the knob at the end of the needle and allow the small edge to grip the individual fibers. Pull back slightly to allow the fibers to separate, then push the round knob through to split the thread into two strands.

OBS: Only single ply linear fiber threads can be split. Example: UNI-thread polyester types cannot be split because it is single ply.

The thread splitter handle is flat on one side to keep it from rolling off the table.
