Thanks
Seriously looking for something a little less intensive than wipe on poly. Don’t get me wrong I DONT think you can’t beat it for a high gloss finish.

But for a matte look. I don’t really want to mess with it

Tru oil is a durable finish. It can be buffed with 0000 steel wool for a more satin/matte finish.
Awesome looking knife by the way. I really like the two tone amboyna.

Wipe On Poly.. use gloss as your base coats and follow w a couple of matte or semi and will look great! Takes less time than Tru oil.

if thats a chef's knife you really want a poly seal to keep ick out of the pores in the wood even stabilized it will have areas where bacteria can congregate and grow.

Any help would be appreciated on pricing this knife
I won’t get offended
I know pricing things is very subjective but how much could I get for this ?

Be a good idea if you actually showed the knife. Handle is beautiful but knives ARE made to cut things and the handle doesn't do that.
