I ended up using JB Kwik Weld and a toothpick on 3 different knives - mainly because I had some on-hand. It worked really well for my purposes and the end result looks pretty good.

Adam, I may give you a shout for details on your method. Thanks for the offer.

On another topic, I currently have two Takeda Honesuki's for Quick Look videos. Man, Shosui is not shy about using epoxy at the handle tang junction. Those babies are really sealed up tight!

You should probably have bees wax on hand to seal up the ends / sides on wooden cutting boards as well...

Yeah, Takeda really globs that stuff on there. I don't know what it is though....when you remove it, it's not real hard like I typically think of epoxy being. It's somewhat flexible.
