"Rope isn't designed for abrasion when you calculate its tension strength"
now we're talking science, however...
I will own that the same argument has been made concerning how fast copper dulls.
That one is easily solved with the knowledge they had more than enough bodies, each man with an adze or chisel would have 1 or 2 sharpeners/honers
that doesn't work with rope
How do you feel about this device. It is a static post, though it has a greased sleeve of copper running around it. The wear & tear would be primarily between the back side of the greased copper sleeve and the post. As it free spins, the friction on the ropes would be greatly reduced.
