Ballistol goes on every gun, blade, fishing equipment. Non-petroleum. My uncle had been using it since he was a kid back in the 1920's. I've been using it since the 60's. The unique odor takes a bit of getting used to, but the results are more than worth it for me. As for muzzleloaders, nothing else is even a close 2nd as far as I'm concerned.
But as for the question asked by Wolf -- did you actually mean this type of protection, or were you referring to protecting the edge during transport, use, and carry?
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country... Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered. ...A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. Time makes more converts than reason."
~ Thomas Paine, January, 1776, from "Common Sense"
