Thank you all for the advice. I'm going to just keep oil on it as I do like the feel of the wood but really love the depth the oil gives this wood.
Right now I used food grade mineral oil since that's what I have to protect my razors. Is there a better oil I should get
For the most part water beads up on the wood. Right at the top next to the knot it doesn't bead up like on the rest of the handle. But my thing is the wood doesn't have that gorgeous color it did when it was first made and I was wanting to bring the color of this wood back to life which was...

I always try to help people any way I can. I have even literally taken the shirt off my back and given it to someone who needed a shirt.
Since i joined here I have gotten stuff for free and bought a ton of stuff. I keep all of this in a box so when I come across someone who wants to...
I actually want one of those yaqi brushes. Just like the color combos. But that brush you made is simply gorgeous as are all of your brushes. I feel like one of the luckiest people on earth to have a couple of your brushes. Who ever gets it is getting an amazing brush.
