This practice DESOL employs is a very effective, some would say requisite, method. If you don't do so, please try it. Beyond the lubrication it affords, most are aware it quells reaction to the carbon, as well.

No kidding? I would have guessed it would be neutral or even counter productive.

I just keep learning :)

I have a Tojiro ITK 120mm Petty. It was an inexpensive knife, that rusted easy, so I thought I would play around with forcing a patina. I covered it in mustard and let it sit for 30 minutes. To my surprise, the black coating came off when I washed off the mustard with soap and water. Now I just keep it clean with Barkeepers Friend.

CEDAR <> The water dilutes whatever would react; thus, lessening overall reaction.
