Finishing Natural Edge?

>Thought I had seen this somewhere on WC, but I guess I didn't hold my mouth right during the search. How do you treat the bark during finshing? If using oil, do you soak the bark as well? Is there someway to stabilize it so it does not chip off with age or when handled? The piece in question is Maple with rough bark if that makes a difference.
