    What do you guys use on high carbon blades to clean and protect them for either long term storage or shipping them out? I've heard of a beewax solution but not sure what it is, also heard wd-40 and other lite oils.

    WD-40 is good for cleaning the moisture and might give you six months before corrosion starts if you are lucky. What you are looking for is called CPC or corrosion prevention compound.

    I have one knife stored for 23 years in its sheath and all it had was mineral oil or canola oil for protection, mind you I did fill the sheath so the leather was saturated.
    The ones I have around the house have been in sheaths for 2-4 years now with little more than a rub down with mineral oil.

    I was using G96 gun oil, but there is a much better product that I use on my Damascus blades and my trap guns and other guns.
    The product is called FLUID FILM and I think it is the best lubricant and corrosion protection made.
    It is also approved for use in the food industry which makes it a real bonus for knives.
    You can get it at Canadian Tire, Wallmart or any automotive type store. I believe it is about $17.00 a can.

    I will have the 237 ml jars available on my web site, non-aerosol so it can be mailed.

    Thanks Forge, they just called and were happy to have me distributing their product.

    Fluid Film is one of the best products that I have used. I have access through my store for all sorts of lubricants and protectants and I still go back to it. I had a Ford Ranger with a rust spot on the door. I gave it a shot of Fluid Film and it stayed there for almost a year. Didn't wash off over winter. It has capillary action (probably a more scientific/proper term but this is what the rep used) so it will actually keep on flowing. I sprayed the one side of an Olfa blade and it made it's way over to the other.

    In almost 25 years of selling the product I never knew they had it in a brush on can. I checked it out and I can get it but I need to say that John has it on his site for a great price.

    John I have lots right now but will definitely get a can or two from you. Maybe at the Brandon gun show in December.
