Hi all, I have a fixed American Tanto custom made by a local maker 17 years ago. (Dear Lord I feel old), So after all this time and all these misadventures the scales were it's weak point. Never liked them ever. So today I took them off and removed the pins. I'm gonna get it Bead blasted and probably try etching the blade. So when I get to this point I want to wrap the hilt in ParaCord, would one of you that seems to exude this talent please try to tell me the best way to wrap it without having a permanent tail on the Pommel end. Thank you! Also I plan to do something like Lacquer the cord when I finish, this is a cutter not a looker.
