If you have a hobby knife that did not come with a grip here is a quick easy way to fix this with sugru. This also works with things like pens and pencils.

Step 1: materials you will need

 - hobby knife (or whatever item you are adding a grip to)
 - Sugru or clay
that is a great idea. i don't know if there isnt already something on instructables like this, but something related to this would be a sugru finger protector. sort of like o thimble, but a lot more moldable. it would be great for anything, because i find that i am constantly getting stingy little cuts on my fingers from not being carefu enough with my hobby knife.
Nice idea, I find xacto knives can get uncomfortable to use if you are doing a lot of detailed work.
Thanks, that was my problem to those little bumps are annoying!
You can also use one of those Pencil Grips. You get several of them in a pack and they are normally under two bucks.
How much sugru did you use? I just bought some and there's 6 5 gram packets. 1 packet? More? Thanks!
i think less than one packet maybe even less than half. I did not have sugru at the time so I used clay to demonstrate. So i dont know off the top of my head.
