So far this stuff has worked great. Solved my main problem with D2 steel. Quick and easy to use, food safe as well! Good price for the size. Just get some, you won't regret it.
Wife uses on the kitchen knives. A fine product.
Excellent for corrosion prevention... especially for high carbon alloys that tend to patina easily. Food prep safe too. Highly recommended.
I live in Mississippi And it can get pretty humid in the summer time, on top of that I work in a stock room during the day, needless to say my knives get rust spots all the time. I tried wd40 on some 3 in one oil on other's, I even tried some vegetable oil but nothing worked. Then I saw cutlerylovers video on this stuff and thought I'd try it out. After spraying a little on each side of one of my most problematic knives and rubbing it in a little with a microfiber cloth, I went to work. Fast forward about three weeks and not a speck of rust on my blade or any of them that I used this on. GOOOOOO and try this now it really really works.
