Plasti Dip Fids!

Plasti Dip Fids!

I’ve had a can of Plasti Dip kicking around forever and I’ve been meaning to use some of it on the handle of a fid.  If you don’t know what Plasti Dip is, it’s a goo you dip things in to coat them in a rubber.

If you don’t know what a fid is, it’s sort of like a pointy screwdriver.  In whip making they are typically used to help make knots.  Here’s one of my Plasti Dip’d fids next to a undipped one:

So far I like the little bit of extra grip that it gives me.  However I don’t know if my opinion will change after I use it a bit.
