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

    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...
