    Wow, go away for a few days and come back to MightyB and Lucas reliving the good ole days.

    Anyway, I've heard oil, no steel wool, some products, cLR. etc... Maybe i'll post a pic of the sword later tonight if I remember see what ya'll say. It's not like some fancy blade or anything like that, just a basic cheapy to be used to practise, but i'd still like to keep it clean.

    I do not own a replica Blade sword

    I might own a lightsaber or two but no other movie replicas.

    Sword care is simple

    I just use the same CLP that I use on my rifles. They even make a lighter spray-aerosol version. Spray a spot on one side and then the other and rub your cloth over it and the sword is clean and protected. If you need to store if for any amount of time don't completely wipe away the CLP with the cloth but leave a layer on there.
