One of my sons decided to re-wrap his survival knife with paracord.
We tried the cord wrap that the original cord came done in. He didn’t like it as much when done with the bulky paracord. It made the handle too chunky for his hand. Together we decided to do a sideways cobra braid using 10 feet of paracord. At the end I tied a simple lanyard knot and did a few rounds of the cobra weave to secure the ends. It makes a nice strap to go around his wrist.
The grip fits his hand much better. It looks neater too. The cord wrap was hard to do and keep neat/straight.
He’s going to wrap his shovel handle next. If he ever gets lost in the woods, he’ll be packing plenty of rope in lots of inconspicuous ways.
