I have used mineral oil to both lubricate the joint and help restore a dull surface

on the scale. I have never soaked with mineral oil. I apply a thin coat on the

scale overnight and wipe off in the AM.

When buying mineral oil get the fragrance free variety. No need to expose the knife

to additional chemicals which might react with the blade/scale

Man that looks great Scott.

I just cleaned a German scout up today but used a scotch brite pad. Seems to be quicker work than sand paper. Used Flitz after that and cleaned up pretty good.

I use mineral oil on the scales and 3 in 1 on the joints.

The words vintage and antique are vague. Actually most words are vague. Even the word vague is vague.
