Imported from Japan, camellia oil is a natural vegetable oil that has been used for centuries by Japanese craftsmen as protection against corrosion. For practical purposes the natural camellia oil is blended with other light oils to produce a low viscosity protective oil. It has a pleasant smell and used regularly forms an effective barrier against rust and corrosion. Supplied in a pump spray bottle 240ml.

Pretty GoodThis stuff works very well but there are two drawbacks. Firstly, if the tool remains unused for too long (say six months or so) the oil dries to a yellow film which is quite gummy and difficult to remove from some tools, Secondly, it is difficult to apply to very highly polished tools (such as highly polished chisels) where it tends to bead or run off. Otherwise it does the job very well. I have used this product for over five years and I still have the same bottle. Use a rag - do not bother with the applicator.
