    I've used mineral oil to keep the wood preserved. It has to be applied periodically but keeps the wood from getting too dry and cracking. I often use it on my wood handled garden tools but have also used it successfully on the few wood handled kitchen knives I own. It soaks into the wood well but is not slippery or slimey once it penetrates.
