I'd rather my own son see me die on my feet as a free man, than watch him go, broken, into slavery.

Gents, this is one of those threads that we should stick with the topic. A member has a legit question.
OP, I'd use oil. But, wax is only wax. I wouldn't use something like a minwax wood finish, but maybe some bow string wax. To remove, heat and wipe. I have NO IDEA how it could react to the finish though. I know I've gotten some gnarly crap on guns and (hydraulic fluid, brake fluid, blood, mud, paint, food...) And never had much problem since I cleaned it off quickly.
Here's an idea. Get a piece of carbon steel, such as a saw blade, cold blue it, wax it, and see what happens. It'll probably be safe.
Come if you must, but only if you must. For the day you find yourself upon my step, will surely be the night you find peace along Jordan's edge.
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillement of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause, and lies exhausted on the field of battle... Victorious.
Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
