I was reading up on some straight razor info and I came across an interesting method of keeping pitting at bay that I think would work great for carbon lovers like myself and many others. If you store your knife in the box, why not toss a couple silica gel packets down by the handle? I know the stuff is "poison", but if it's down by the handle, it should absorb moisture while it's pretty far away from the blade.
Has anyone tried this? If so, did it work/warp/not warp your handle?
