    Gutted paracord makes for a very nice grip. Comes in a variety of colors.

    hockey tape.

    It might not be the most attractive solution but it's a heck of a lot more comfortable than windshield wipers, lol. Also, it's a good foundation step before adding a leather wrap.

    O rings from TCSS and 2" heat shrink. Looks good and feels great in the hands.

    I saw that, but somebody else may stumble across it while looking for answers.

    Who cares, it's got some good stuff and has plenty of room for updating.

    Has anyone tried some sort of spray on rubber, like Flex Seal or the likes? I figured it could be masked and applied in interesting patterns.

    I use Magpul picatinny rail grips off an AR-15. Combined with a few other things, it makes the saber look like it just came back from Afghanistan.

    Are you looking to glue or attach material to the hilt? Or a surface treatment. I could suggest a surface treatment...some Ive tried anyway....
    If you are careful to tuck in the pigtails you could use copper or brass wire like paracord to cover a knife handle..

    I have cut grooves into the handle and used 1/8 brass wire attached to banjo type joints on either end..you probably need a mill for
    this one.
