Some Ballistol and gun cleaner comparison on youtube.
This guy did a fairly exhaustive review. 3 part series. Includes conversation with Ballistol rep.

While I realize that we are talking about protecting knives used in food prep, there seem to be a few cautions with Ballistol
and plated materials. Might be more in the 3rd video.

Leo-Mark, thanks for posting the knife porn! What a great collection of knives. There is a small fortune invested there. I have always been a pocket knife guy. Now I'm thinking I have to start a kitchen set. I'm pretty sure that I want to start with a Goko gyuto 240mm. I was impressed with the review and the price is right.

I'm a bachelor who never cooks now that the kid is raised and gone. The knife will open burrito packages for the micro wave. Haha :lol:
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?

Your starting with a great knife I started buying good quality kitchen knives so that it would improve my sharpening abilities .I have seen to many people either designing web sites or yacht electronics specialist learning on the job which in their cases both mens a job taken much longer therefore costing more and been highly unprofessional I made a decision that I should learn on my own knives and it has been most useful and given me far greater confidence and ability .
Having a great knife to prepare food with is inspiring in itself since an awful lot of food prep is down to cutting and the better the tools the better it goes .
Cheap kitchen knives are often too thick and are fine for cutting processed foods like sliced ham or sliced cheese or opening a packet; but as soon as it is necessary to really cut something deep then a good knife is a virtual necessity and then a joy to use .
I am not a hunter but dressing game requires the right knives with the right edges to dress the meat and take it off the bone again the wrong tools just make a mess.
I am sure it will inspire you to greater things and food is so much more enjoyable when it is home cooked even if it is only for a meal at the weekend.
