Give the blade a good clean with some rice paper or a dry paper towel, the folded patterns will jump out. Make sure to keep it oiled to prevent rusting.

You may want to buy a tub of Renaissance wax, you may be able to buy it locally, it really is the best way to prevent rust and keep you blade in great condition, it also prevents fingerprints and leaves a glassy finish on the steel.

Try eBay or amazon, if you still can't find any, order a tub with your next sword.

That's a cracking sword you have there, good pics too, I have to agree with Ross about the Renaissance Wax, oil is,fine, but the wax will last much longer, it shouldn't be that expensive, it's well worth investing in a small tin, :D

Oil works fine, but its difficult to get an even layer, it can result in small rust spots, it can also damage the wood on the inside of the saya by soaking it.

now i know whats been bothering me about that picture theres way to much oil on the blade
just a couple of drops on the blade is all you need then wipe it over with a clean cloth
that much oil on your blade as in the picture will do more harm that good by damaging the saya
