How to Wrap a knife handle with lanyard
Cord wrapping your knife to make a lanyard is a great way to add utility to your hunting knife while also making it easier to carry. 1. Tape a 10-foot long piece of cord to the underside of the knife handle, about an inch from the blade, so that a foot of cord hangs off the side of the tape near the bottom of the handle, and about nine feet hangs off on the side of the blade. 2. Wrap the nine-foot piece of cord tightly around the knife handle, starting a half inch above the tape, with each loop pressed tightly against the loop above it until you reach the bottom of the tape. 3. Continue wrapping the longer cord around the handle while keeping the one-foot piece of cord held tight against the underside of the handle, binding it in place with the nine-foot-length's loops. Do not be alarmed that the one-foot length extends beyond the end of the handle; this extra cord will be used later. 4. Tie a tight knot with the two ends of cord at the bottom of the handle. 5. Create a loop with the two ends of cord by crossing the two at a distance from the knot in Step 4 long enough that the loop created can fit over your wrist. 6. Tie the two ends together at the point from Step 5 to complete your lanyard wrap. Cord wrapping your knife to make a lanyard is a great way to add utility to your hunting knife while also making it easier to carry. The cord used to create your lanyard will create a wrist loop, which can be used to carry or hang your knife, and the cord itself can be used as a survival aid. Paracord is a strong cord that can handle intense strain without breaking.
