I just finished a para cord handle on one last night. I took some pics today and should have them back soon, I dont have a Digital camera. Under the handle are 12 fish hooks and 50 yards of 10# Spiderwire, Also made a sheath out of Wood and it to has a Para cord wrapping, And has ALICE clips to wear on belt or pack.

I just did the same thing to my machet.You know you can take out the thread of para cord and keep unravaling it to use to sew rips and straps on some equitment.

I just wrapped my new Izula. Not sure which knife your are talking about but Cutlerylover on YouTube did a pretty good video for wrapping this particular knife.

Here is a Tramontina Bolo I just reworked and built a sheath for around $10.00 Cliped the point, sand blasted the blade and applied cold blue, Para cord wrapped handle. Sheath is made from ceader. The ALICE clips are resessed, epoxed and bound. Para cord wrap on sheath. There is also hooks and line under the wrap on handle.

I mean that, from the looks of the first pic, it sure seems like it had been sorely neglected. I thought there might be an interesting back story.

Sorry, I think I misunderstood.It was in very bad shape, The handles had rotted off. Nothing that interesting, I just cant seem to through any thing away.
