Epoxy won't get hard enough to resist dirt sticking in it. Super glue will.

I've never had much problem with it holding dirt but I guess you could epoxy then use super glue to seal it after the epoxy dries completely

I have been a knifemaker for the last 33 years. I would put superglue on the crack and then sand smooth.

The horn is stressed from the tang of the blade. I have to agree with the epoxy, and recommend furniture epoxy. You can actually get a color mix for your epoxy at Jantz Knifemaking supply to match your crack fill. I use Stick Fast epoxy from eknifesupply.com.
