    I had some blades I wanted to protect against corrosion. I spoke to Matt Cook who recommended EEZOX which was designed for guns. He never steered me wrong about stuff that he has recommended.

    Well, here is a chart that proves that he’s correct. There are other agents that work as well, but I don’t like the smell of Ballistol (Hickok45’s favorite).

    Just curious, how does EEZ-Ox compare to Militec-1 or Ren-Wax? I have not found one product to be a panacea. Each one has it's strength & weakness depending on application. What have folks found for blades or firearms? EDC vs safe queen?

    I've found charts that show Breakfree CLP at the #1 spot but eezox and BF CLP are better than ballistol. I use ballistol on my AR's to hose down the BCG when it dries up because its non toxic ish and doesnt harm your skin or finishes, lens, etc... it's cheap enough too. I use slip and CLP for storage....ymmv

    I like renwax for keeping a blade corrosion free, but as stated above I believe, it isnt a great lubricant for a blade. I would definitely trust Matts word.

    I second the use of CLP for both firearms and knives. been using it for years. Honestly these kinds of things boil down to marketing + personal preference. Just please DONT use motor oil or WD40.

    Your link describes "best practices" for muzzle-loading guns. Your knives are extremely unlikely to experience fouling from black powder. That all said, I like Militech1 (grease and lube) for general lubrication, but I always use CLP Breakfree for a "surface protectant". CLP has the ability to creep across metal surfaces creating a barrier that I've found to be best for my use.
