Came out nice!
Got my new Pairing knife in Maple Burl. Instead of using Tru-Oil and buffing, I tried applying boiled linseed oil. This is after 2 coats, and I really like the way it turned out!! And MUCH less work.

My wife starting taking up the carpet in a couple rooms upstairs, and is going to put vinyl flooring down. I saw her struggling with the cutter she bought and Home Depot, so I handed her my EO1 EDC. Her first response was, “What are you doing with my garden knife?” Then very quickly changed to, “Hope you realize you just lost this knife for a couple of days.” She sent me this pic just now.

Nice, did you rub the Kephart down with oil? Might just be the photo, but the stripes look a little darker than the other pic.
Yes, that exactly it, thank you. Two coats of boiled linseed oil for the Kephart (tiger stripe maple). I really liked it at that point.

I did three coats for the Hiker‘s Backup (ziricote). It is darker and nicer in reality than the washed out iPhone pic below.
