Just wondering what peoples preferences are? I've read many use mineral oil but the stuff I got at the pharmacy(only mineral oil I could find) beads up too much and thosebeads cause stains that are quite annoying. I'm using my 20" Sirupati in place of a machete at work(I do Landscaping) so I have to clean and oil it almost daily and I just can't seem to get that mineral oil on my blade in a "very fine layer" without beading. when I try to wipe the beads away they just cause streaks. Any advice on a thinner oil that doesn't bead as much will be greatly appreciated. Also I'm new to oiling blades so application advice will be happily accepted as well. Thanks!
