Turk's Head Knot Grip
I made a 3 lead 4 bight Turk's Head knot, then wrapped the cord several times and made another Turk's Head. More wraps were done between each of the next couple of Turk's Head knots.
I ended up trimming about 8 inches of excess cord off the 12 feet I started with when I finished. It has a good grip feel to it, with my fingers fitting between the knots and would probably work well for a knife handle wrap, walking staff, etc...
Here's a simple one I did with 2mm cord on an old boot knife.
