"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, with two sleeve of copper around it. One sleeve is glued or pinned to the post so it can't move, while the other curved piece of copper is able to freely spin. Placing grease between those two copper sleeves, would be result in a very low coefficient of friction. Resulting in very little abrasion on the ropes.
