    A big dowel? They must change shape in mineral oil or else that doesn't make any sense. :-)

    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    Sounds familiar... But I just moved to a less humid corner of the island, maybe that will help - although it is too late for some blades I found when I packed for the move I just try to keep them oiled, but with a few I forgot or didn't take the problem aerious enough - resulting in some ugly red O1 and 1095 blades...
