CARE FOR YOUR TOOLS
As with all your equipment, proper care of your tools is essential. Draw knives, adzes and chisels should be treated like all bladed cutting tools (axes, knives, machetes, saws, etc.). Even dry wood contains some amount of sap. If it is not cleaned off your tools, that sap could lead to reduced efficiency and rust issues over time. After each use, clean your tools. Then, put a light coat of gun oil or Getsome 1000 lubricant on it to help keep it protected from corrosion. Another important part of care is to keep your edged tools sharp. Before every use, make sure that is the case. A sharp blade is a safe blade. Besides, a sharp blade will make your job easier and more efficient.
