cork handles


Recommended Posts

First clean with denatured alcohol and let dry. If you wish to restore it to a near new finish you can sand it. Start with 200 if it is in rough shape otherwise 400 or a fine 3M sanding pad. Scotch Brite also works.

Clean with alcohol again and allow to dry.

Then apply U40 cork sealer. Cork sealer is formulated to strengthen and seal the cork without changing the soft feel cork offers. You could use other products like water seal or urethane but the out come is a hard plastic feeling finish.

Still say mineral oil is the best. You're oiling wood - bark actually, from a tree.

And toothpaste does a good job as a hand cleaner if you're in a pinch. You'd be surprised the kind of gunk it will take off your hands.
