paracordguild.com have come with tutorial to make paracord sword wrap. More information here: http://www.paracordguild.com/make-paracord-sword-wrap/
To make this paracord sword handle wrap I used the following:
- a length of gutted paracord 550 (paracord with the inner strands removed). This makes the wrap flatter
- a lighter
- a lacing needle to work with the turk head knots. These got really tight!
- something to open up a knot with. A marlin spike will do nicely, just mind the tip.
