There have been a number of posts on rust prevention with a number of products recommended. I have always used Breakfree CLP and Sentry products Marin Tuf Cloth. I did stumble across another test recently which introduced a product i was not familiar with called EEZOX. Here is a link to the test, just thought others might be interested.

I can't remember where I found this link or from whom, so I have to apologize for not crediting them here. But here's another test using salt water againt steel protected with several of the most popular oils and protectants: http://www.6mmbr.com/corrosiontest.html

I live in the Pacific Northwest where rain is a very frequent fact of life. And when my swords start to develop spots I use CLP Breakfree and grey Scotch Brite pads to remove them, then reapply the Breakfree. After battling devious and dastardly pumpkins and zuccinni, I always wipe them down with a cloth sprayed with Breakfree and reapply a protective coat before hanging them back on the wall. This has worked for the surface corrosion but I haven't experienced any of the deep stuff yet.

I've used Tuf-Cloth from Sentry Solutions on firearms in two states and three countries and it works well. Even with extreme condensation (going from a 70F armory immediately to a 130F desert) a good wipedown (once) kept rust off several pistols, rifles and a machine gun for over six months.


I use the same on my armor and swords for the same reason.

In my day we were issued LSA. It was just another Vietnam era "cure-all." It worked decently if you used it frequently and in a fine coat.

I wonder if a clear spray enamel would work for large plates of armor?
