Corrosion: I have never had any problems over the years with my Stainless Randall models. However, my regular Carbon Steel models tarnish over time. I have regularly used Brownells Rust Preventative #2, but my 2-5 and 5-4 just won’t stay long without black stains. Your recommendations?

Flitz polish will leave a protective layer so long as you don't wash it off with another cleaner.

I have personally not used Marine Tuf Cloth but I heard good things about it.

A little Ren Wax has always worked well on my 01 blades and a can of it should last you for years. I use it on some of my collector firearms and swords as well - great stuff.

I use Marine Tuff Cloth on all of my old carbon fighters. Great product!

Mine are in a very harsh humid environment and all are wrapped in VCD paper like the paper found on new bearings in boxes etc but first coated in a spray grease. Seems to work for me. Also a bit of gun oil mixed in sometimes.
I probably have 50/50 carbon and steel blades. None are used as I have plenty of other users to play with

Bought 2 of these treated cloths recently and they seem to be the ticket to combat oxidation on steel, brass and nickel silver. It will dry to a haze and leave it that way.
This isn't the best smelling stuff when it gets on your hands. I suggest wearing a latex glove. My first experience took me repeatedly washing my hands to get the chemicals off my skin.
Also, the package says seal the cloth tightly after use. Well it doesn't come in a zip lock bag so get your own.

Would never stand up long term to this product & keep the original finish.
Pickle a user, keep a keeper.
Use and judge for yourself and form your own opinion.
