 I may have posted this already but as there are several new folks since I did I'll repost. https://youtu.be/UtWWA6MQXGE  I always finish off  my hiking sticks with a 4 strand paracord lanyard. To me it just dresses up the stick and adds a nice touch, helps keep the stick from hitting the ground if dropped on the trail. I like to use 325 paracord as after it's braided it can be fished through a 3/8" hole that I drill through the stick. (The link is a good video explaining an easy way to 4 strand braid.) Personally I like to use a camo pattern with a solid color, blacks or browns, earthy, woodsy colors as it is a hiking stick, but any colors that trip your trigger will do. Another thing I do is leave the tag ends long and finish them off with wood craft beads. The spirit stick in the photo is done with camo and black.

Thanks for looking

Mark

I'm pretty atrocious with braiding and knots and such.

JRSC the first few tries at braiding were, for me, let's say a challenge. After doing a few it's like anything else done repetitively it becomes second nature. Keep at it and it will come.

I always add a lanyard to hopefully prevent accidental dropping, a carved topper can be damaged if it happens (it has). My method is to use a leather boot lace and attach using a "PrusiK Knot", this is a non invasive climbers knot and if a llarge loop is used its position on shank can be moved to alloe the stick to be carried over the shoulder if both hands need to be used.
