Camellia oil is used to protect carbon steel blades and tools from rusting.
For centuries, Camellia Oil has been used to protect the finest Samurai swords. Many of the very best woodworking edges and cooking edges are made of carbon steel (of one type or another) which can rust. Camellia Oil is recommended by master chefs and knife makers as the most effective oil for rust prevention. A small amount applied to your kitchen knives will keep them free of corrosion. Our Kurobara Camellia Oil is non-toxic and non-allergenic and is free of additional solvents.
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. It also will not stain wood so it can be used on woodworking tools without fear of it changing the look of the wood.
