wooDsom Knife Holders are initially treated with food-safe mineral oil to deeply penetrate wood grain. wooDsom's Oiling Wax, made to artisan quality, keeps natural wood resilient longer by combining organic natural oils with beeswax to maintain the wood's natural beauty for an extended period of time. Apply monthly or more often as desired.
Both knife holders in this image were initially treated with Butcher Block mineral oil. Alder, a very 'thirsty' wood, absorbs oil quickly. The one on the left was subsequently treated with oiling wax and left to rest for 10 days. Woodsom's Oiling Wax held the wood's natural beauty longer than mineral oil alone.
