Default Care of Cork Handles

The handle on one of my rods is starting to dry out and crack. Is there some kind of oil or other maintenance I should be doing to keep it in good shape?

Default Re: Care of Cork Handles

Everything that I've read suggest that you replace the cork handle. Here is a link about Rod Care. Take note the last paragraph contains the cork handle information:

I hope it helps.
Thanks,
