Good product, keep my knife away from rust.
Perfect for knives as it is light, doesn't gum up and won't taint things it comes into contact with. I've also used it on some precision tools and had no issues.
The camellia oil is very good - it should be used very sparingly. A thin film is enough to protect the blade from environmental influences. Deutsch: Das Kamelien-Öl ist sehr gut - man sollte es sehr sparsam verwenden. Ein dünner Film reicht völlig, um die Klinge vor Umwelteinflüssen zu schützen.
Seems to work as intended. I live in a pretty arid place (N. AZ, USA) so corrosion from dampness and things like that are not much of an issue here. But the oil does seem to help too w/ general conditioning of knives and tools... such as the wooden handles w/ bone bolsters of the Japanese knives that I’m so fond of. I haven’t been compelled enough yet to look up the science behind why Camellia oil in particular is so good for knife & tool maintenance, lol, but I will sometime. In the mean time, it just sounds pretty damn cool. ✌️
Good quality product, a spécial towel to apply it would be appreciated
