    I've read that Ballistol lubricant is also non-toxic. I think that it has a mineral oil base.

    ALG Defense Go-Juice is supposed to be non-toxic. Many people claim that it is real good for firearms. I would assume that it would be good with knives too.

    I use Go-juice exclusively for my knives. Tried several brands and all worked ok. Go-juice is noticeably better,imo

    I bought some myself and some of their 0000 grease. I just haven't had the courage to try it yet.

    Dang! I’m gonna get some of that XCP Rust Blocker! My Marine Tuf Glide failed miserably.

    PS: XCP is only available in the U.K.:(

    not food safe, but I've found Boeshield T9 to be unbelievably durable and highly protective. In fact, most bicycle chain lubes formulated for wet use are incredibly good corrosion inhibitors. For choppers and stuff, T9 is my go-to. Don't usually need anything on a knife that cuts food since I take better care of them

    Hmm surprised at how poorly mineral oil performed. I've been using some food grade stuff without issues but that's probably a testament to 3V's corrosion resistance. I might try some coconut oil, which is apparently the main ingredient in Frog Lube.

    Heck, I might just use some chapstick/lipbalm since it performed decently and is food safe.

    I have used it for years. It's cheap, always around and convenient. I suggest Josh add that to the test a few months ago (he was asking for ideas to create the list of samples to test).

    It even does pretty well in saltwater testing.

    Found a US dealer, but they only do commercial sales if $100+. Anyone interested in a GB for this stuff (XCP Professional Rust Blocker in 400ml aerosol cans)?

    Jo & Nathan,

    Saw the post in the Announcements thread; I'm hoping everyone's OK and doing fine.

    LMAO!!! Even though . . . it IS a dagger. :(

    That still took me a minute to figure out :confused:, even though I have used European day/month/year format for dating all my correspondence for years because my major clients are European.
