Cool food safe clear finish for wooden utensils

Can anyone recommend a food safe clear finish that I can use on wooden carved utensils?

I think people use some kind of mineral oil for wooden bowls and utensils.

We coat our cutting board with a mixture of mineral oil and paraffin wax.

We keep a mixture of one cup of mineral oil with two tablespoons of (melted)paraffin wax in a jar and use it to coat the board as needed. I would imagine that you could use it for other wooden utensils as well. But it is not permanent by any means and needs to be re-done periodically!
I blog a little about my crafting. I'd love to see you there. Please visit Crafty Distractions and say hello.

My daily project was completed on January 25, 2012, but you can still visit my blog The Daily Turtle if you would like to see my adventures making or photographing a turtle every day for a year.

Why put anything on them? If they are going to get used frequently, just wipe them down so that they are clean, and leave them alone. I have bamboo cutting boards, and that's what I do.
I cannot master what I have not tried.

Strangers are just friends that we haven't met yet.
