General Blade Care & Maintenance
We recommend a basic cleaning every 2-3 months. More often if the blade is worn/handled regularly.
Make sure the blade is away from you and work very carefully to avoid injury.
First use a cloth to wipe the blade free of any surface oil, grit or grime.
Second, using a clean, soft cotton cloth apply a small amount of metal polishing paste to the surface to be cleaned. Rub the paste with light to moderate pressure in a circular motion. Then buff to a high luster with a soft dry cloth. Do not allow the paste to dry on the surface. Repeat as necessary.
Once clean, lightly oil the blade with a compound like WD-40 and wipe off excess to provide a barrier against moisture.
