Harvey's Conservation Paste  (SORRY, OUT OF STOCK AT THE MOMENT)

Price: R20 (OUT OF STOCK) for 10 g, R65 for 40 g, R200 for 200 g, and R800 for 1000 g.
Available from Knife Machines and Tools , www.kmts.co.za,  and Zees Knife Supplies, https://www.zeesknifesupplies.co.za/home and from Stan Hohowsky  https://www.eyrieforge.com

Handmade by ourselves. This microcrystalline paste cleans, penetrates, nourishes, and preserves wood, leather, damascus, and carbon steels, bone, stone, ivory, horn, silver, brass, and copper. Perfect for the conservation of antiques, knives, firearms, musical instruments, and coins. Protects against fingerprints. This is a hard wax to prevent you from using too much of it.  Preferably lightly warm item to be waxed with a hairdryer to aid penetration of paste, (do not heat ivory). Apply paste sparingly. Rub up with a soft cloth when dry.  If your paste dries out, you can add a little bit of white spirits to it or heat it up.  If you are posting carbon steel or damascus steel knives, you can put a thick layer of the paste on the blade and let it harden.  Tell your customer to remove it by lightly warming the blade with a hairdryer or very carefully with a heat gun.  It can also be removed using a tiny squirt of WD40 but must then be recoated with our paste.
