    Nice job. Whippings are an excellent way to wrap just about anything. I've done several walking sticks using paracord whippings and then added a Prusik knot for an adjustable hand hold.

    Nice tutorial. I've whipped a lot of rope, never thought of tool handles. Great idea. Thanks

    We often take for granted such simple things that we don't pass them on. Props for doing this vid/pic set so neatly. This is the primary way to finish any natural cordage Good job!

    Ok... now that I have whipped the handles of dang near anything I can find and have used a whole skeen of paracord, I am now ready for the next cordage lesson........

    BTW, is it best to just use the sleeve of 550 Para for like knife grips and such or the whole in and outs of para?

    Has anyone made a Para BOB bag....I mean the entire bag, shoulder strap etc made of para?

    Nice IA, now can you explain it to a 12 year old. When I teach the scouts how to do it (it is a basic requirement) it always amazes me how hard it is to explain. With some, they get it once. With others, you have to instruct them many, many times. I have found that the best way to show is to use a fat stick and masons string. For some reason it is easier for them to see all that is going on.

    I'll have to try the fat stick and masons string with some of my scouts who are having troubles.
