Anyone know how they fill the wooden knife handles with resin? Tung oil? Varnish? Is it soaked for a long time then wiped off?

That process is called “stabilizing wood” and is often done with polyurethane and a vacuum.
Google it you’ll find a lot of information

There’s a wood stabilizer product in this month’s Woodcraft flyer, in case you’re interested

Ok, thanks guys. Took a look at some of the articles on stabilizing wood and might try some without vacuum. One of the items at WC was on a product that could be used without a vacuum. Most liked Minwax wood hardener which I might experiment with since I have that. Used it on a bit of wood rot on my window sill. Also had some vacuums and pots for sale Amazon if I wanted to step it up.
