    Looked in my knife case today for whatever odd reason and noticed some rust spots forming on a couple of my knives edges. I had been meaning to buy some EDCI by Aegis but they have been out of stock for some time. Does anyone have any advice for alternatives??? Also going to be adding some desiccant packs to the case.

    I wouldn't use edci... In my limited testing (so far) of different products it performed terribly

    I use Break Free CLP. But any oil is better than none I would think.

    Desiccant can’t hurt.

    I use Rem oil, but that WD40 rust resistant stuff is great.

    BreakFree CLP works for me. An alternative is plain old Vaseline.

    I use "Ren" wax. Used by museums and been great for me.
