Re: Shinken Rust Problem

To capitalize a little on Keith's comments regarding over-oiling blades, I oil my blades the same way I do my firearms. Just as my drill instructor taught me, I apply the oil and then wipe off all the oil possible. That results in a very light coat of oil over the metal surfaces and is sufficient to prevent rust. Using that method I've never, ever had a firearm rust and haven't had any problem with the four blades I own either. Keith may want to weigh in here and discuss his views on oiling and over-oiling.
