I have a commission from a fella who wants a skinning knife. I came up with a blade shape that he's happy with. The problem is, the handle material. I did one with micarta, and he told me it gets very slick during the dressing process. Some commercial knives have a handle material made out of Santoprene, or similar material. He's used these, and found it very satisfactory. Santoprene is typically molded, and I have no way of doing this. I have been told that a low surface-tension adhesive will glue these kinds of materials to steel, but after half an hour on the phone with 3M, and four separate call transfers, they could only give me three possible adhesives that might do what I want. I thought of wrapping the handle in some variety of rubber stripping. I don't think he'll go for cord-wrap; too "mall ninja". At this point, I have more questions than I have answers, and I hope somebody here can help me. The color of the material and the method of attachment isn't really important, just so long as the handle stays put on the knife, and stays put in the user's hand, even when covered in "deer fluid". Any help?
