First I would like to ask if you do wood turning? If you do an easy way to make a sure fit handle is to roll up a piece of paper into a cone shape.
Then put tape around it and then mark the top where the blade ends. You can use the damentions to make another handle. Make sure you add about .020 into the thickness so it will fit tightly you can also add alittle epoxy to hold it in.

One thing to make sure of is where the wood butts into the metal shank have it about 3/16 further up the handle so the handle will not split when it comes in contact with the steel.

If you do not turn send it to me and I will make you a new handle for free just supply the wood you want.
Send me a pm if you want too.
