Well, I was having trouble figuring out how to make sure the Paracord stays on the handle without coming loose.
I found this instructional and thought I'd pass this on:
First you need to do two things,
a.) Burn/melt the two ends of the 550 parachute cord so the outer sleeve and inner threads/strings won't come unravel.
Soak it in water for about 20 minutes so it will "stretch" when it's
being wrapped around the handle and "shrink" around it tightly when it
Check the pic below for how to do it.
