  1. Trying to find a good oil for my knives that with lubricate and help rust prevention, but does not cost a fortune since I am on a tight budget. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can use, if so please shoot me an email at cobweb9999greg@sbcglobal.net and again thanks for any help you can offer. God Bless The USA and all our Troops.

    Plain old cheap 3 in 1 oil has worked for me for many years. I don't have rust problems or gumming up problems using this product.

    yeah I think 3 and 1 did good on a test one of our knifemakers did Anthony Self. Maybe he can post the link to his test.

    Mineral oil is food safe and better at rust prevention. Your local drugstore calls it baby oil.

    Anthony, I just sit here and watched your video. Like you I was kind of surprised at the results, 3 in 1 oil, being the best. If I would have had to put money on it, I would have went with the Gun oil!

    Very interesting test!! Thumbs up!!
