Good day all. This is my first post in this section so here we go. Helping someone clean out an old basement for a move and they were throwing out about a dozen or so Old Hickory Knives which as a junker of course I ended up with. She said she has had them at least 50 years which I don't care much about but is there a way to age them? But the reason I am posting is the wood is all there but old and loose so I will remove the wood and lightly sand it, what do I seal the wood with after a light sanding? I would like to keep the original wood because it also has the old Hickory logo. Mirror shine on the metal isn't necessary but a clean look would be nice. I only have a grinder/buffer and a DA sander other then my hands of course. What grits do I start and finish with on the metal?
