Re: what oil to use on The Outback?

Re: what oil to use on The Outback?

I bought a bottle of vegetable oil and will just use that and see how it goes thanks, I googled Carr's turns out its mineral oil and resin. So I'll use what it says on the care instructions.

Re: Advice for new buyer please

I think you should decide which you want a decorative one or one for use, not sure if that zatoichi one would be much good no tsuba.

Re: are maintenance kits always cheap rubbish?

Re: are maintenance kits always cheap rubbish?

I've got 3 of em now, 2 are broken and need glueing, this one turned up broke the other fell apart within a few openings. All the same cheapo wood, they are born duds.
