Using the Choji blade oil:


The Samurai heavily relied on this authentic Choji blade oil from Japan. Comprising approximately 99% mineral oil and a subtle hint of clove oil (1%), proper application is crucial. An improper thickness might lead to solidification and accumulation of dirt. Moreover, excessive oil seepage into the scabbard (saya) may cause wood rot. Hence, the recommendation is to remove excess blade oil with rice paper. It’s advisable to oil your Japanese sword every three months, adapting to its storage conditions.


Japanese blade oil, renowned for centuries, serves as an excellent rust protectant. This authentic oil, directly imported from Japan, boasts an indefinite shelf life.
