High-quality wooden knitting needles will naturally become slicker with use (from the lanolin in wool and oil from knitter’s hands). If needed, it is a good idea to clean with muslin or shammy. I do not recommend using beeswax since I have not personally tested this theory on these products; therefore, cannot say with certainty that it works or that it will not damage the needles.
I also suggest to keep them in their beautiful case when you are not using them, out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight - too much heat will make the smooth finish dull.
Lastly, I also do not advise using any lotions on your hands while using the needles - certain chemicals react with the wood, causing the finish to become dull very quickly.
