Does anybody know if there is a specific way to care for wooden knitting needles? For example, when I'm done using my metal or plastic needles, I will wipe them down with a damp cloth. With the wooden ones I'm at a loss, as wood tends to be porous and soaks up moisture, and it sometimes makes it hard for me to work with them when they are that way, any ideas?

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.
I sometimes have to File them down if I get a splinter
I have used a Nail file, but I found over time that I needed to get an ultra fine Emery paper to keep it from snaggin the nicer fibers I knit with
I also wipe them down with waxed paper after i have to file the tips a bit
I also tend to cut my longer DPN in half so I have stuff more the size i am used to (4.5-6.5 inches)
the cut ends are not as sharp as the orriginal tip, but it works for me
