Mr Emerson, I recently picked up a SOGfari machete, and noticed that the grip seemed very narrow for my hands. Wrapping the handle in 550 cord resulted in a grip that was too deep to me comfortable. The handle is coated in rubber and texturized. Do you have a suggestion for a way to widen the grip, short of cutting all the plastic and rubber off and carving wood grips? Thanks in advance for your time.
