Handle cleaning

I have read where people have used 0000 steel wool and some oil to clean the handle to let the wood absorb some of the oil the put some wax on it. This might be a better alternative than sanding it all the way down to bare wood. If you didn’t like the look then you could sand it down completely, but it might look better once you remove the grim and put a little oil back into the wood.
