I bought a new UST machete, which has a paracord wrap, but my tiny hands find it difficult to grip and very uncomfortable.
What wraps would you suggest are the most comfortable for small hands?

Here's how my machete was wrapped.

I used a simple wrap on a neck knife last year.

The machete handle is an extension of the steel from the blade. It's flat and rough around the edges. I tried the basic wrap you have on your knife, then added a layer of cobra. It's bearable, but still cuts into my palm.

This is what I attempted today. It's a bit messy, but I'm still trying different wrap techniques to find the most comfortable one. My city hands just don't like this handle.

You should file down the rough edges so that they don't cut into the paracord when you grip the handle.
