How can I care for and maintain my TR knife collection?

Article about: While I only have HJ daggers in my collection.. I was curious how to keep them from rusting and maintaining their current quality? I've read that applying a small amount of WD-40 or similar

    Ren Wax is used by most museums, so I would imagine it must be reliable protection.

    Hi Robert glad to hear you will be joining the "Partei" soon ....also take into consideration your environment..if it is prone to humidity...or high in moisture. An enclosed display case..whether large or a small latch lock type case large enough to hold one or 2 daggers..would help cut down some of the environmental effects. Gel packs in a smaller case larger display open ziploc bag of "uncooked" rice...placed in an out of site position under a helmet or behind something will also work great.......and most importantly for the longevity of your artifact...ALL of the above comments..of invaluable advice should be adhered to. When protecting these pieces of needs to go all the way...its a marriage that you need to protect. Regards Larry
