Hey guys

Has anyone ever had stress cracks along the sides of the handle on their UC Sting replicas? Mine run from the cross guard or from the pommel, respectively.

My biggest concern - they're really small but will they get bigger? Is there a way to repair the handle? or even replace it?

Thanks!

Not to my Sting, but it happened pretty bad to my Strider Elven Knife. It split about 1/8", but then seemed to stop after that.

Thats good news, that it stopped at least. Mine are thankfully much smaller

I'm going to bump this!

Bump

I actually picked up a hobbit scabbard since I couldn't find any older ones from lotr and they fit beautifully together.

Anyone else seen this, or done something about it?
