As I do for most weapons my models wield, I start by sharpening the edge to make it more realistic.
Using tweezers, I tied a knot using chain. At first I glued the chain in place, but I've since removed it. I decided to take TheWife's advice and paint first, chain later. Plus, I've recently found a better looking scale chain that looks more like "real" chain instead of the kind of spiral twisted look these chains have.
You can get all sorts of scale chains from hobby stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby or even jewellery stores. They're chains for making your own necklaces or bracelets.
