How to make a Paracord Knife Handle
- Knife (We’re using a Tomahawk, cuz we’re Tomah-awesome!)
Choose your weapon!
We didn’t have a knife handy that didn’t already have a good grip, so we used a Tomahawk
Lay your sheath on top of the Paracord
Cross left, cross right
Take the left side of your Paracord and run it over the sheath and under the Paracord on the opposite side.
Thread it through the loop on the left-hand side
Pull the Paracord tight
Take the right-side Paracord, cross it over the front of the sheath
Cross the left-side Paracord over the top of the right-side Paracord
Cross the left-side Paracord behind the sheath
Thread the left-side Paracord through the loop on the right side.
Try to keep everything as tight as possible
Cross the left-side Paracord over the front of the sheath thread it through the loop on the left side and pull tight
It’s the same moves over and over again
Repeat in this fashion until the entire handle is covered
Melt both tips of your Paracord strands
Melting the tips will make it easier to thread the Paracord through the eyelet on your sheath if it has one. It will also prevent the ends from fraying.
