Source for GEP cork handles???

Does anyone know where I can buy replacement cork handles for vintage GEP action rods? (They're the big curved pistol grip handles. I have a couple of vinage GEP 6 sided steel action rods I'd like to put a new set of line guides on, but the cork handles are unrepairable (I think) ... one has a big chunk out of it about a half cubic inch and the other one is cracked nearly in half. Thanks.

Brent,

If memory serves, the GEP handles were of cork composition - you might try using cork yoga blocks and shaping them to fit.
