    This is my old made in the USA 110 bought in 1973. A friend has one of the Wicked Edge knife sharpening systems and honed it for me. Hasn’t seen much use since.

    I’m in Michigan with high humidity in the summer. Like Jim, I run a dehumidifier all summer in the shop, and made an oil pot. Everything gets a swipe of oil after every use.
