If they are like the Flint steak knives in my rack they are rosewood 
   I polish rosewood on a buffing wheel and its very pretty.

Have to keep them out of water for long, is the drawback. But then 
soaking wood handles is never welcome.

  Best varnish I have found for kitchen use is marine spar varnish.
Oil varnish and let it cure a long time.
It holds up for years before you have to scrape it off and start over.
