You can lay up glass cloth or carbon fiber cloth with epoxy on the inside of the handguards to strengthen it. If done right, it will outlast you. I use West Systems epoxy resin, it is one of the strongest out there and penetrates wood well. Not saying it won't eventually split if you drop it repeatedly, but I have seen some wooden canoes that were strengthened in this manner, and they stand up to heavy use very well even when run aground.
