    Look, I understand the paracord handle thing but I personally can not stand it. Answer this: what are you going to do if/when you remove the paracord for some other reason? That’s going to be a pretty bear handle to work with.

    The whole point of wrapping as a means of survival preparedness is to have a lot of cordage in a nice neat package. You don’t need to overlap and have designs, but those intricate wraps increase the amount of cordage you can store. Great example is those store bought survival bracelets. They only have about 5-7 ft of cordage. The ones I make at home can double that. Paracording is the manly word for weaving and basket making. To answer your particular question, I actually just gut out some cord and use the outer cord to make a single wrap as a base then wrap on top.

    John FYu Well, John, I’ve been around for a long time. I know the value of cordage as much as anyone. I’ve just never really cared for the paracord wrapped handles. Just my opinion but I feel the handles are made to conform to the hand and be easy to use. You wrap cordage around it and the effort put into to making the handle ergonomic, non-slip, etc, gets defeated. I can carry cordage in my pack, on my shoes, on my belt, on my hat, etc., so that I won’t be without cordage at any time and the true design of the handle will remain in tact. 🙂
