As a little side project, I am making a knife from a blank supplied by Woodcraft. I was going to use some curly Hawaiian koa wood. I didn't want to use a film type finish whcih would chip or crack eventually, I was thinking of just sanding to 600 grit and then buffing the wood with tripoli compound and carnauba wax, as I have done on some turnings, but a wax finish might be slippery. I'd like a pore filled, high gloss finish if possible. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.
