I recently bought F.Dick Premier Nature Santoku with African Blackwood handle and i'm wondering how to take care of wooden handle.
PS... sorry for my bad english
Check with F Dick for specifics. In many cases for modern production, wood is "stabilized" for use on knife handles. Essentially impregnated under pressure with a resin similar to superglue. This hardens the wood, stops absorption of water, oils and so on and limits the movement of wood expanding and contracting.
A little research, not all woods are compatible with the process, African Blackwood among them.
Beeswax is great, but expensive.
You just need a drop or two of mineral oil to keep the handle from drying out. Mineral oil is cheap and food safe (in small quantities, that is) You can get it at any drugstore in the baby-care aisle
1 pound = 453 grams = $$8,49.
It will last you years.
Good idea. Never tried it.
