I have a great love of olive oil.

As a child I was washed with olive until I was 5 years old, because I suffered from severe eczema.

As an adult one of my favourite meals is olive oil and bread, accompanied by olives, cheese and a good shiraz.

My wife only uses new olive oil for cooking, and most of our food is pan fried or stir fried.

I am very fond of olive oil.

But not for my guns and knives.

Olive oil is mildly acidic, as is the case with all vegetable oils.

A quality gun oil is a far better choice for guns that are used, and microcrystalline wax such as Renaissance or Antiquax deserve serious consideration for guns and knives which are not used.
