    I think the True Flight was the first knife throwing knife I bought, like before I even got into it. Cold Steel really do make some bomb proof throwing knives.

    But I was gonna say about the paracord, some companies come pre-wrapped (like true flight) and then some peeps, like me, wrap some for the grip.

    Couple tips for whoever likes to wrap...

    You can cut down on some weight by striping out the inner nylon strands. So end product is pretty darn flat.

    That can make it a little less gripy, BUT, and here's something awesome I picked up online somewhere, you can use 2 methods to harden the paracord.

    1. Marine epoxy, you gotta get 2 containers and then mix them, I haven't tried this one and forgot name. but seen lots youtubers doing it.

    2. Minwax-Wood Hardener. Ha, yup. Just brush it on enough to soak through, sit over night. I've done this with all my wrapped implements of destruction. It protects the cord and adds like 3 times gripness. I'd probably use it on a non thrower like an axe cuz it's that sweet.

    I have managed to nick the hardened cord, but it didn't come undone, and on happened once.

    can pick up the wood hardner lowes/home depot.
