The Walmart epoxy comes in two side by side syringes and has “2 Ton Clear Weld Epoxy” written on it, made by ITW Performance Polymers, Riviera Beach, FL.

Another thing I noticed. The epoxy did not stick to the tang at all. Even where there was squeeze out in front of the scale on the the blade. I picked at the squeeze out with the tip of my pocket knife and it flaked right off the steel.

So I’m not sure what is going on with the epoxy bond, or lack of bond, to the tang. I’m going to try to rough up the tang a little extra, make sure I clean it well with acetone, and try some “better” epoxy.
