Prime, it looked to be perhaps rope underneath wrapped in what appeared to be some sort of black tapey stuff when I saw it this weekend.

 

The blade is gorgeous and I'd seriously consider buy it myself after seeing it up close if I had the cash.

What you see is a nice rope, wrapped in this tape that's almost like electrical tape. It is also going to receive a secondary wrap of something a little more padded/grip friendly. It's actually quite comfortable.

You'll have to clue me in on your tip construction methods. I'd love to talk shop with you guys. I wasn't in a position to jump in on Black Ratchet early on, but these guys are pimp. As a gamer I'll generally endorse anything they put out.

 

Can't wait to see it in person!

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

 

As for the grip, Andrew is trying a couple of different leathers & wires to see what will work best for this weapon.

Leather man, leather. Anything else is amateur hour to me.
