THE DOUBLE NELSON TRADITIONAL BRITISH NAVY ROPE DOG LEAD

£46.00

Created exclusively for us at the last remaining British Royal Navy Dockyard, this excellent lead is a fitting testament to British naval supremacy throughout the Age of Sail. The mighty British Empire relied upon generations of expert rope-masters to supply this vital commodity. Our excellent Double Nelson (a uniquely designed dog lead for 2 dogs) uses sturdy 10mm traditional hemp rope produced the Victorian ropewalk still used at the beautifully preserved historic Chatham docks. No fewer than six beautifully finished sailor’s knots ensure both hounds stay right where you want them to.

Over 400 years of naval rope-working heritage has gone into this handsome article and each one is handcrafted by an expert. Throughout the 19th century, a Royal Navy First Rate ship-of-the-line required over 30 miles of rope for steering, gunnery, and virtually all aspects of life at sea. Rope had to be of the highest quality and tied by men who’s lives depended on the reliability of their craft.

Our traditional rope dog leads are finished by hand without clamps, glue or stapling. They rely upon the tier’s skill to ensure it holds steady and true. We are immensely proud to offer you this handsome article of authentic British craftsmanship, helping to keep alive a tradition that helped build a nation. Please be advised that this lead will arrive with a distinctly “farmy” whiff to it. Thank the 400yr old method used to produce the natural hemp fibre. It will dissipate over time.
