Thanks guys, I like the grip on it really well so far. The guy that shoes our show horses checked it out and he picked it up hesitantly and kind of rolled it in his hand and then said he liked it too.

It is very firm, with the leather compressed. The epoxy I used wasn't thin enough to saturate the leather so its not like a stabilized chunk, the layers are just glued together and compressed fairly tight. If you look up estwing hatchets and hammers they offer (or at least they used too) a handle made of stacked leather like this. This has a similar feel. The downside on hammers is the hammer seems to outlive the leather handle most of the time.
