Wooden Knife Handles
12/16/14 @ 6:37 AM
A while back someone posted how they refinish old wooden knife handles and for the life of me I can not find the thread. I believe someone said they used mineral oil to get the job done instead of restaining them. Actually, I believe it was CDS that posted it but I may be wrong. Can anyone help me? Since I am currently out of work, refinishing the handles on some of our kitchen knives is on the to-do list. Thanks much.

I use a mixture of one third bees wax and two thirds mineral oil. Heat slowly in a double boiler or on low power in the microwave. Heat slowly until the mixture is all liquid, no floaters, wipe on liberally, let cool, scrape off excess and buff. The wax seems to hold the oil longer.

for my cheap Chicago cutlery, just mineral oil. Same as a cutting board.
