Handle Wrapping Technique: Level 4 (Ito - Hineri Make Style)
Hooray! we have finnally reached an actual technique to wrap sword handles, and it has taken me a damn long time to learn it aswell. This is the most basic and most common method of wrapping sword handles however it is rather difficult to find the right colour ito. That is why people turn to using ribbon, but doing these twists and turns with ribbons, is very difficult becuase it always slips. So you wanne get yourself some shoe laces which is the closest thing to an actual "ito". Now you would ussually tie off the end of the knot by threading it through a hole in a cap, that will not be covered in this tutorial im afraid. Learning it from scratch it should take no longer than half an hour.
