I'm a weird dude when it comes to modding knives, I like DIY-ing even my very expensive knives. I ordered a Benchmade Altitude, but I am less than intrigued about the handle on it. It's on a sale at Blade HQ, and I like how thin the blade is. I would like to make a handle for it with more purchase and I was wondering about using one of those steel reinforced putty sticks. I do have a few questions, however: Would it be tough enough for basic EDC tasks? Would changing the ratios of base and hardener make it tougher? Let's say I remove some of the hardener part, would that make it less brittle? What other ideas would you think for a handle? I suppose paracord would be a viable option on that tang, just don't know if it'll be enough. I'll try paracord before I commit to epoxy, if ever.
