Thanks! For an oil coat, would WD40 do? Also, sandpaper can further sharpen the edge too?
Singer oil is better... WD40 dries up too fast, it's good as rust remover but not as a protectant. Is the knife a large chopper? If you are going to do a lot of chopping it is not necessary to go beyond 600 grit. In fact you'll realise that too polished an edge will not perform as good as you expect. IMO super polished edges works better on kitchen knives where you do a lot of push cuts.
