Yes it will but it takes a while. As mentioned the set should be re oiled after use. The solvents in the wax evaporate in minutes and the wax does nothing to prevent natural oils from drying out. Something a bit more permanent, and food safe after curing is poly (dilute to wiping varnish 1:1). Do 3-4 applications, keep wet for 5-30minutes, wipe off. This would need repeated annually or so depending on use.

Natural bees wax doesn’t have any solvents added. I also don’t believe ebony has much in the way of natural oils to dry out.

But what I’ve found in some reading is, natural lacquers are traditionally used on those glossy chop sticks. They’re dipped several times and allowed to dry between dips.
