When I first started collecting knives I bought 3 bulldogs and put them up. They sat for years. When I pulled them out years later the blades where spotted with rust. I was just sick. I started pulling my knives out about every 6 months or so and dust them off and put a very light coat of rem oil on them. Doesn't seem to attract as much dust as some oils I've tried. Bone scales that are a little dry or turning white I do the same thing. Just rub a little rem oil into them. Seems to be working but I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing.
Yesterday I got one of the knives that has been on my list a long time. A case sidewinder. I invested a pretty good chunk of change in it and it would really make me sick if one of those big rosewood scales split. I never plan on carrying it. It will be in the display case probably as long as I live.
All these knives that I love and I have no idea if I'm caring for them the right way or not and have no idea where to look. I figure I had better ask unless I want to throw away my collection.
