I just did a animal leather wrap top top a steak knife because that a client a while earlier (didn"t seal the wrap, together it had actually to be food safe). I did the plunder in the exact same fashion I perform paracord wraps, and also used leather bootlace (it"s square in overcome section). Come seal it, epoxy works well, same an approach as sealing paracord v epoxy, except you could have to use two coats of epoxy (or periodically three). I additionally use tiny applications that superglue wherever ns tie off the wrap come seal the knot before I epoxy the remainder of the leather. The course, sealing leather wraps transforms the wrap right into the very same plastic chunk sealing one epoxy wrap with epoxy does, so it sort of loser the "authentic feel" if that"s what you"re after. If you want it to it is in a bit stiffer prior to you seal it, you can soak the leather cord then carry out the wrap, though ns haven"t tested that.

 

Good luck!

I"ve just done a few, and also I used bootlaces on all accounts. The method I walk it, I offered the massive of the lace to kind of develop up the handle a tiny so that is not as flat. I left the unsealed, simply for the feel of the leather, and also since it"s a bootlace, ns assume it already has something excellent to it chemically to help it in the intended use (or maybe not...). Ns tied that such the it does not have to be tied turn off externally, removing the require for adhesive entirely. In a type of morbid comparison, it"s favor tying a noose approximately the take care of of the knife, therefore the only thing that shows in the finish is the pave itself. If that provides no feeling at all, and you room interested, ns can try and explain it better.

Good luck
