Re: Is it possible to redo handle?
Sand paper will reduce the grip for you, by alternating from heavy grit (like #80) to fine stuff you can ream it down to your own specs. As far as how to keep the reduction at an even rate on the radius of the cork I will not write all that out, you'll figure that one out OK. If I were going to do this I would use the paper from a belt sander and cut a strip about 20" long by 2.5 - 2.75" wide for both the reduction and the polish work. You can find used belts from anyone you know who owns a belt sander. Or........you can buy singles at some stores. For fine finish I would be using 250 grid and this will be had in sheets at your hardware store.
