From the Walrus Oil Website:
"Every woodsman and woodworker worth their salt knows an axe must be kept rust-free, and well oiled. That’s why Walrus Oil teamed up with Peter Buchanan-Smith, the founder of Best Made Co. and author of Buchanan-Smith’s Axe Handbook to formulate the perfect conditioner to bring old hatchets and axes back to life and properly maintain them for decades of use. Made with all-natural ingredients including coconut oil, carnauba wax, and beeswax, it conditions both the handle and axe head, naturally restoring original character while protecting your axe with a water-repellent wax. This “all-in-one” axe oil goes on like a gel, and because it contains no linseed oil, the product won't gum up on the axe head.
Proudly Made in the USA!
Counter intuitively within the axe building community, I very much dislike BLO (Boild Linseed Oil). This Walrus Oil- Axe Oil is really great stuff though! It soaks into the wood much easier, as it is pretty light, and provides a great finish on the wood. I generally will add a wax, in addition after it has had time to soak in, to seal all that Axe Oil in! What I really really like it for and what I use it most for is the steel. Get this, after a 4-6hrs soak, you wipe it away and so does any stress you may have when it comes to rust! It wipes away clean too! It is Oil, but it wipes away very clean very little streaking. Get some!
Love the look it gives the wood! It smells great as well!
Not a bad product, definitely absorbed into the wood and easy to work with. Adheres well to protect the blade as well. But it takes a bit more product than the wax based one I usually use and excess needs to be wiped away.
