What type of finish would you reccomend for these handles? It would be really nice to know specific brands so I have no trouble finding it. I want a clear that brings out the grain and makes it appear darker.
I suppose there are a number of commercial products that would work great. Myself, I would probably stay natural and give it multiple coats of linseed oil, cut with turpentine to aid in penetration, hand rubbed using something like cheese cloth between coats. There may be easier finishes to apply, but I don't think there is a better one. Oh, then a beeswax based finish.
