    Great project;thanks for sharing. I use a lot of paracord with my gear, but paracord does have the tendency to get slippery when wet or sweaty. A useful alternative is rubber. It stays “grippy” when wet and absorbs shock better than paracord. I use surgical drainage tubes called “cigarette drainage tubing,” which is available from medical supply vendors (no prescription necessary). Or, I get a bicycle inner tube, slice it into long strips about 1/4 inch (6 mm) wide, and wrap the tool handle as indicated in your tutorial. Two cautions apply: do not use rubber if you or someone in your group is allergic to latex, and understand that rubber is less durable than paracord, and will have to be replaced eventually if the tool is used often or stored under harsh environmental conditions. Rubber is gripper, paracord is more durable. Which is best depends on how you plan to use the tool.
