cord-wrapped handles seem to be popular, particularly for neck knives. I have no personal experience with this material and must ask, What's the deal with this? I can see that it'd provide a better, more comfortable grip than just the metal tang of the blade. But if you get fish guts or other foul gunk imbedded in the cord handle, do you have to unravel the cord to clean it up? And is that a hassle? To the unitiated it looks like it might be, as some of the cord handles appear in photos as though they're fixed in a series of macrame-like knots.
