There are lots of great Paracord projects over on Instructables, and we’ve featured quite a few of them here before (see below), but this one from Harlan Whitman caught my eye, both because of the great job Harlan does presenting the technique, and because of the great-looking results he gets on this camp axe, which he made himself. [Thanks, Harlan!]

    Beautiful axe, is it from HW Knives? I looked at that site but did not see it.

    1. No connection with hwknivesandmore.com.  That axe is made by me ;)

    It looks great but that it’s going to cause you some severe pain/blisters with even mild use, there’s a reason traditional axes aren’t full tang and yet another reason you don’t see paracord wrapped axe handles
