I've been having the unusual problem of strength problems in the Hilt (instead of the blade, which once printed individually worked great). My kids are being as gentle as kids can be to not slam the blade around, but when they wield the hilt and grip it tightly, it fails in the two thin walled sections near the top. I've tried two ways with thick and thin layer height in that area to modulate adhesion, but really just needs thickness.

Any way the model could have an extra outer wall thickness added to that area? It shouldn't affect the look of it, but would keep it from torquing apart.
