Produced as a camellia oil applicator or Abura-Tsubo, which in effect is like a giant felt tip marker, oil soaks into the 'nib' by capillary action; simply unscrew the red cap and use to paint a thin layer of protective oil onto a metal surface. 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 producing a low viscosity protective oil. It has a pleasant smell and used regularly forms an effective barrier against rust and corrosion. N.B. Camellia oil not included.

no oil in itWarning, this comes with no oil in it, which was a disappointment and makes it an expensive bottle. The description implies to me that there's oil in it. I now have to buy the oil to make use of this, the final cost being much more than I intended to spend.
