Just some thoughts, no rules. The obvious answer would be to match the
finish of your cabinets. IME, oil will make walnut much darker than the
natural wood and may not match your hickory ... but that could be a good
thing. I like to spray knobs with a clear, semi-gloss lacquer... you can
easily do this without a lot of expense, right out of a spray can, after you
get them the color you desire.
