I like the cooking oil idea. Although I know we don't have any. I suppose any food grade oil would work though.
A quick trip to the larder indicates that we have Olive Oil, Groundnut Oil, Walnut Oil, Sunflower Oil and Hazelnut Oil to choose from! I ignored the Truffle and Garlic infused ones.
I wonder which would work best?

Digger9523 has the best quote:
"Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke."
i am fortunate enough to own 2 Alan Wood knives and they get a quick wash in warm water with a mild detergent then dried and stored out of their sheaths.

what do you think of Alan woods knives, I have handled two, and used one, I have several other custom knives which I rate higher, but we're a lot cheaper.
As to using custom knives, you are right, they are there to be used, a wash with washing up liquid, and dry with tea towel, quick stropping, and never stored in there sheaths is all they need.

It has but the salt is 'bound' in the molecule only really acting as a viscosity moderator.
Nowt to worry about from a corrosion view on steel if its effectively rinsed off
