Tom, I'm familiar with Tru-Oil due to my interest in firearms.  From the pictures, it leaves a nice finish on your brushes. As Hans says, it should also be a durable finish.  As an added plus, the user can easily reapply the Tru-Oil lightly, if necessary.

Do you also apply Tru-Oil to the socket?

Is there a stain applied to the walnut prior to the Tru-Oil?

Ricardo-  I didn't stain the handles before applying the tru-oil.  They darken up significantly when the tru-oil is applied, but it's an interesting idea for future brushes.  The last batch of wood handles I did I used a penetrating sealer for the socket.  This time around I used the tru-oil to keep things simple and the tru-oil seems very robust!

Tom, I like the way they look now, but wasn't sure if the darkening was due to a stain or the Tru-Oil.

Rich looking handles, Tom. Nice depth to the finish.
