Maybe on one of the old all steel blades from the past, but I've never used any oil on a modern stainless blade.

Magnets! Go off to your local hard wear dealer and find a couple of strong magnets. Use one to store your stash on. The other for the blade your using.

IMO only if you use carbon steel blades. They are still available and some folks prefer them. When I was using CS blades I'd use mineral oil on them and it kept them from micro rusting.

I'm lazy though and I begrudged the time it took to add the oil. Like Johnny I only use stainless blades today.
