Sword maintenance and rust prevention
« on: 2008-05-13, 17:49:15 »

There was a thread on myArmoury recently discussing this, so I've been thinking about it again. I've written a concise description of my observations of what works pretty well. Anyone have anything to add?

We also have some brief info on SwordWiki:

This all comes with the disclaimer, of course, that I'm a much better expert at letting them rust since I rarely take my own advice. :)
