I know, it sounds a little naughty, but it's not. Every PORT•SACKS 100% cotton handle is hand-whipped and twice-dipped. Robline (.008m) waxed whipping is wrapped for 16 full turns, trimmed, then dipped once in liquid whipping. Once dry, each end is given a straight cut and dipped once again to prevent fraying.
Sounds like a lot of work, but the clean, finished look is definitely worth it.
