I ordered this alongside my first carbon Japanese kitchen knife. The oil was packed well (no spills, which is impressive since there is no freshness seal such as is ubiquitous on most other products of this type. Exactly as described, this is pure Tsubaki oil, completely unscented and thinner than your typical mineral oil. Good for anything knife related, it is very effective for honing on oil stones and works well as a handle oil too. The primary use of this oil, however, is as a rust preventative. I really can't comment on this aspect much, only time (and a few humid summers) will really tell.

In the end, the Tsubaki oil has proven indistinguishable from USP mineral oil in my use, aside from the slight difference in consistency, I am glad to have tried this product, but in the future, I will reserve this oil for occasional use until I can tell a difference.

Great quality, no odor & a little bit goes a long way. FYI: I'm new to Japanese knives (bought 2 from here so far) & their maintenance, but the oil doesn't feel sticky or watered down.
I only got my gyuto 2 weeks ago & the oil 1 week ago & it's holding up nicely so far & it doesn't feel like it would expire anytime soon.

Overall, I agree with the other reviews. It's going to last a good, long time for me as a casual home cook.

All i can say is this product is quality, clean, oil. I use it on my straight razors and it protects great.

Does what it's supposed to do.
I don't know what I'd do without this stuff to keep my white #2 steel knives rust-free!

I love this stuff. It keeps my Shiro knives blem free- a tall order! Very nice on my Ao Ko blades, too.

Great stuff, especially for the money.

Not a lot to say about this stuff. It's oil! It does exactly what it's supposed to without any off smells or toxic crap that can transfer to food. It's kept all traces of patina off my new Tanaka Ao Ko nakiri...is that good or bad? :-)

Also, cheaper than ordering from Japan! Thanks, Mark!

sword oil, to protect carbon steel, does exactly that, good addition to anyone's knife maintenance kit.
