It's surprising to find none on the internet. The only results from hours googling is one man's bait-and-switch site to show off his knife's custom paint-job, and a post on this forum suggesting an alternative handle-wrap intended for the bushman...which is inapplicable to the g.i. tanto. Someone please post a diagram for the factory handle-wrap.

The construction is the same for the gi tanto as true flight thrower. The only thing you'd need to consider is if the tanto has a kydex sheath. Here's how to wrap a tff: http://www.aaawebmaster.com/knife/knife.htm

Actually, the two are very dissimilar.

The basic technique would be the same. The gi, shanghai shadow, and tff all have a solid handle with holes to pass the cord/screws through. I didn't mean the style was the same.

reason for editing: I give up. Just another experience of the ineptitude of the knife community at-large once again keeping evergreen the proverb "If you want something done right, do it yourself." I figured out the factory-wrap technique, but I'm not posting it. Thanks a lot.

Don't know if its the same one but I'll post what I found:

I don't own a GI Tanto yet but I've tried my hand at wrapping my Newt knives before.

Hey anonymouse, don't be an ass! Plus your factory technique looks like Sh!t. How is this for a wrap?

Like how it looks? Well too bad because I am not posting how I did it. Neener neener neener
Time to grow up man.

I'm also looking for how to do this. Help would be greatly appreciated! I've gotten nowhere in trying to figure out how to re-wrap it the factory style. Thank you very much for any guidance!
