Use mineral oil, it's food safe. I use it on my knives.
Grats on the Opinel Kamm! Nice! Love the color. Mooshisho will be wanting one for her food prep too, so make sure you show her where you got it!
Would olive oil work?
That can go rancid, AFAIK.
I've had my CPM-M4 Comp Chopper coated in a layer of olive oil for about 6 or so months and it's fine. It's also in a kydex sheath.
It's smells like a leather strop that has been embedded with CrO and fixed with olive oil.
Also, no rust.
I did get the Flitz Gun & Knife Care Kit, so I might start using that. I've read the MSDS and most of the Flitz stuff is rather safe and non-toxic.
And, Kamm, nice knife! Opinels are great users. I had an Opinel 10 and it could go through a 1.5 D pine sapling in one stroke! Alas, I gave it to a friend.
Tout un tranchant!
Grats, what a beauty!
I recall my # 6 Carbon was quite stiff at first. I put some mineral oil in it and worked it a hundred times or so over a week. It's definitely easier and smooth but doesn't breeze open. I guess that's the nature of the wood on steel pivot. shrug
Well, humm... I now silicon lub from erotic shop, will work for this...
Or from the scuba shop or plumbing section of the hardware store. I think.
Yeah Mooshi! FTW! Silicone lubricant in the plumbing isle at the local home store!
But not the silicon spray, only the gel or oil will work And sorry, I'm dirty
Plumbing suply house or home store will have it. Heat proof silicone grease. It comes with some knew faucets, too.
Thanks guys and gals!
I use ballistol on mine and it did the trick. I love the opinel! I also got the cold Steel twistmaster (opinel remake) awesome black,des
What do you think of it so far?
^ Definitely this! Mineral oil is not all food grade and even though it lasts longer it's not necessarily the best choice. I just use straight up olive oil on all of my knives that might need to be used on food. Most of them haven't dried up even a little bit over the last 2 months, and here in the dry desert that's saying something!
Man, it is getting hard to resist the urge to pick up an Opinel these days. I see they even have one with a wharncliffe-like blade..
At about $15 a pop, get a whole bunch!
