Caring for weapons

I've recently bought a white oak jo and bokken. With previous weapons I've sanded off some of the varnish and used teak oil, can I do the same with white oak of will it stain?

What an interesting opinion, do you mind if I move into your cave?

Re: Caring for weapons

I'm not really sure, but make sure that you store your weapons laying down flat. If you have them standing up, they will warp.

Re: Caring for weapons

Mark,

I don't know about teak oil, but I've read that others on the forum use olive oil on their weapons. I've used Scott's Liquid Gold on everything from antique/fine furniture to my own weapons It really makes the beauty of the wood come through while keeping the wood from becoming dry and brittle.
