Mike grabbed the Right Stuff. I’ve found nothing that works better at preventing rust than camellia oil.

Phildo92027 showed me how to make a camellia oil applicator out of a little piece of 1 1/2” PVC pipe, two end caps ( one glued on and one loose to act as the cover), and a tight pad of fabric inside to act as a dauber. I keep it saturated with camellia oil and use it to wipe a thin film on bare iron and steel to prevent rust, such as a freshly sharpened edge or newly cleaned plane. Very economical this way.
