  • Protect from Rust
  • Leaves a lubricated surface

Camellia oil is used to protect carbon steel blades and tools from rusting.

Traditional tools and knives are made of carbon steel. Many of the very best edges are made of carbon steel (of one type or another). There is one problem with carbon steel compared with stainless steel, it rusts. Not only is the rusting unsightly, it tends to dull your edge prematurely.

Camellia oil is a natural oil made from the seeds of an evergreen plant in the camellia genus. The seeds are cultivated in Asia and pressed to produce the camellia oil. The oil is very light and unlike other natural oils, it's not likely to dry and gum up.

Our Camellia Oil is bottled in an 8 ounce container (245 ml is you're into the metric system). The spray applicator makes applying very easy. Imported from Japan.

Tool Tip: Not only does Camellia Oil work well on knives and tools for protecting rust, you can also use it on your hand planes to help lubricate bottom. When I start to feel some friction on the bottom of my plane I just give it a quick spray, then buff it in with cloth. You'll be shocked how much less effort hand planing requires with the bottom lightly lubricated.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
