Anyone have used the Choji Oil (mineral oil with 1% of clove oil) for the 3rd Reich blades?
It's been used for centuries for preservation of Nihonto (Real Japanese blades) with great results.
Most of those centuries old katanas looks like they were made yesterday (with exception of Chinese fakes really made yesterday and looking ugly).
Have recently purchased a bottle of this oil and used it on some of my daggers - so far the result is stunning!

BTW - the Choji Oil is used also on bonsai pottery without any harm to those cute little trees.

Never heard of that oil. Where did you get it? How much is it?

You can find it on eBay or buy it from various dealers of Nihonto care stuff.
On eBay is cheaper.

As stated, choji oil is in fact mineral oil with clove oil added to it. It has a great smell and it's crystal clear in color. It has been used for centuries on Japanese swords with obvious success. However, there are certainly much better products to use on both Japanese swords and other edge weapons. I did (in the past), use it on all of my edge weapons with no ill effects. I guess the good thing about it is the smell and that it appears to cause no harm to leather, plastic, wood, etc.
