    Vaseline for knife handle

    Yep, that's the one. Mind that it will make light woods like ho wood, maple and oak a bit more golden in colour, although all oils will darken the wood somewhat.

    Vaseline for knife handle

    I'd recommend Liberon finishing oil, which is basically a tung oil mix. Completely food safe, easy application and very hard wearing. The downside is that it is quite pricy, but a small container will last a long time.

    Not a new knife, but a new knife magnet from Noyer. Loving it, really nice walnut and details, and very strong magnets.

    Just picked up this from the sharpener. Used to be a 270 Shig kitaeji gyuto, bought from BST after it had been through 10 years of heavy use. After some work it has become a 260 Shig kitaeji sujihiki, and I couldn't be happier. Should probably downsize the handle some time in the future, though.

    I´m on the lookout for a new sujihiki, and liking the idea of having this one re-profiled so I just might be interested. PM inbound!
