That handlewrap and tip overlays are outstanding. You should do a build along on how to make that handlewrap. Would be most interesting.

I can try to put up a wrap build. It's pretty simple. Cut a thick piece of quality leather 1 in, or 2 cm, for our friends across the pond. Use a scive tool or a belt sander to sand it down on the outer thirds on a taper so it is razor thin on the outer edges amd full thickness in the middle. Then, this is important, after you apply contact cement to both surfaces and ket it dry, stretch and pull that thing as much as you can when you wrap it to get the bulbous feel to the wrap.  I'll try another one with pictures after my new job slows down hopefully.

I’m betting a 1” belt strip would work well if someone doesn’t want to buy a big piece of hide to cut a strip from. And may even get a couple handles from one $10 belt blank.

Are you suggesting a wrap?

Yup. For the type that Dave just shared. I’m betting a belt blank would be perfect. They’re pretty inexpensive and already cut to width.

They are a bit thick but I guess it would depend on the size of the grip.  I think it's a good idea but I would go with something  about 2 oz.

 Kyle, that is what this wrap was from. Maybe not a belt blank, but I bought a 1 in strip that was 6 for long. Then I sanded it on the belt sander to get the edges thin and leave the middle thick. When you pull it tight as you wrap, the thickness get even more pronounced

Looks like I have a tube waiting for me at home. And the little busy body is doing his best to unpackage it for me.
