Camellia Oil for Carbon Steel Knives & Tools


Tsubaki oil (camellia flower oil) is a natural oil used to prevent oxidation on carbon steel knives and tools, like traditional Japanese blades. Apply tsubaki oil when you’re storing your knives for an extended period (like for a vacation). If you live in a very humid environment, apply the oil on your blades more frequently to combat rust. Use a few drops of oil on your blade and apply evenly, making sure not to miss any spots.

Kurobara 100% Pure Camellia Oil is made in Japan and is cold pressed by a raw squeezing method of the wild harvested seeds of the camellia tree flower. Cold pressing is a labour-intensive mechanical process that ensures the maximum possible amount of the oil's character and nutritional content is preserved. Lesser quality oils are extracted by a heat process.

Camellia Oil is an emollient (things that soften skin and hair) and approximately 82% of its fatty acids are composed of Oleic Acid (omega - 9). Omega - 9 is a remarkable transdermal carrier and is very effective in enhancing the skin's moisture retention ability. It is quickly absorbed and permeates deep into the lower layers of the skin, promoting cell growth and giving the skin support and flexibility.
