Niwaki is a Japenese/British company founded by husband and wife Jake and Keiko Hobson. They source, design, and manufacture very fine Japanese garden and woodworking tools, kitchen knives, and gear in traditional styles with modern updates. Their quality is unmatched and the tools are a revelation for western gardeners.
Oil from the seeds of Camellia oleifera (the same family as tea) is the traditional choice for protecting steel tools from rust. Use it when cleaning and as a regular protective coating. Camellia oil is lightweight, odorless, and tasteless for sharpening kitchen knives. It won't dry and gum up over time and will keep your heirloom tools in top shape for years to come. Use often and generously.
Cold pressed Camellia seeds blended with white mineral oil. Not for human consumption.
