Social media knifemaking

I've been posting my work on Instagram and from there onto Facebook since back in the summer.  I knew the customer was following along on Facebook and we had talked about the possibility of going wither with or without a Turk's head.  So I posted a picture without and asked what he thought.
He commented later that it kind of looked like a small machete without the Turk's head.  He had me try it with a black Turk's head knot.  I did a two strand to keep it small since aikuchis are supposed to be guardless, and he approved.

You can see how much the epoxy darkens the color of the paracord.

  1. I like it better without the Turks head knot or with a Turks head in the same color as the handle wrap...IMO! B
