I live in a humid environment, Northern Kentucky, out in the country near the Licking River.
My hand tools are mostly Japanese. Generally, I follow that tradition by using Camellia Oil to protect my tools.
For about a year I’ve been experimenting with common vegetables as a less expensive alternative. Canola Oil appears to act the best. It covers well and is non-drying. So, it doesn’t get gummy over time.
