    Interesting. Thank you very much. :-)

    The article misses out on one very common rustblocker of ye olden days though:

    flax/linseed oil

    To my experience it works very well, even long-term and under harsh conditions, like when exposed to sweat or sea-water.

    Its no good for fine mechanics, as it tends to harden (the effect is called "verharzen" in german, sorry I don't know the englisch word for that). The hardening is a more-or-less wanted effect on blades though. Gives them a very good protective cover against corrosion.

    For best effect it should be heated up to about 60-70 degrees celsius and then applied while still hot (old family trick, which can be relieably traced back four generations, probably was in use much longer).

    i use multi-purpose grease on blades and guns. it's cheap and widely available at auto parts stores, and seems to do a very nice job. i clean and regrease only every six months or so without any corrosion problems. smells good, too.

    Yeah I read that. Will be very interesting to see if olive oil is any good in rust protection (other then "internal" against "rust" in your arteries). :-)

    Isn't wd40 slightly corrosive?

    i've tried olive oil. it turned rancid, and i ended up with a large rust mark on my favorite sword.

    i've always thought that wd-40 is a solvent, but their website claims it's a lubricant and water-displacer. never tried it, never will.

    i uses olive oil on my harness.
    it seems that you need to lay it on the first time , and as long as you dry the metal after rain or use (horse sweat is very corrosive).
    It really does a fantastic job.
    that beiong said, i oil it each time i use it.

    in the event of not drying properly, the rust is very easy to get rid of, just wipe or use a washing up scratcher.

    I can not explain it but it does not work well on swords, espeically if stay in a wood and leather scabbard.

    from what i have read, in mediaval time they used olive oil mixed with salpeter. (but i would not be surprised if armour was painted)

    I never tries flax/linseed oil, is it close to olive oil?

    Verharzen means to make resinous.
