to sand in a different direction every time you change grits - that way you can see when the previous marks disappear -> sound like a good idea!

Buuut I happen to know a few good picker who regularly bend and break picks. It also depends on your style to some extent.

Not a problem.
I don't know if this is done on knife handles or not, but personally I might still countersink or counterbore the 'outside' of the hole slightly then press the bar material into it. Just so that should the epoxy ever break down, the end of the bar is physically larger than the main portion of the hole - and won't be able to pull through it.
Even a very slight taper on the 'outside' of the hole would allow the pin material to fill it and lock it in place. I'm trying to think of a good way to get my point across without having to draw a picture... Imagine a hole that was just slightly conical. Does that make sense?
