Paracord handle wraps are useful for adding an extra bit of grip to a tool handle such as a knife, tomahawk, walking stick, or even a water bottle. They also look cool and can be unwound for a bit of survival or utility line. It's very simple to do although rougher textures are easier to get a good wrap on. Whatever it is you're wrapping, it needs to be good and tight to keep it from slipping off or unraveling.
1. Before you really begin, go ahead and melt the ends of your paracord, because not doing that is just annoying. Ok, now make a simple loop running the length of your item. This loop should be approximately the size of the grip you are looking to create. The longer the grip, the harder the final steps will be, so maybe start with just a couple inches until you have the process figured out.
2. Take end "B" and wrap it around the object and around the mouth of the loop you have made.
3. Continue to wrap end "B" tightly around the object and around your loop moving up the length of the object towards the closed end of your loop. Keep repeating this step. Repeating this creates the "wrap" that will constitute the grip on your item.
4. When you have reached the grip length you want, take end "B" and run it through the loop you still have left. If you've covered up your loop, you'll need to either make a shorter grip by unwinding a couple of wraps or start over with step 1 making your original loop bigger.
5. While holding end "B" firmly in place, grasp end "A" and pull. Pulling end "A" will close your loop and tighten around end "B."
6. Trim off both ends "A" and "B" with a sharp blade and melt them closed.
