By the way, I'm concerned about the life of the wooden handles on these tojiro itk knives. Is there a to protect the wood, with some type of oil or anything like that?


Thanks!
Hung

Yeah, I much prefer oils and waxes that don't fully harden. I love the waxes as of late including the Gun Stock Wax from Birchwood Casey.....great stuff.

+1 to Adams post, the BC gunstock wax is great. I usually sand mine up to a 800 grit sand paper then wax it.

Of course you can always rehandle them.

or you can just buy some beeswax, melt it down in a double boiler and mix in some mineral oil and tung oil (or just mineral oil), and you get yourself what basically is board butter.

should be cheaper too.
