    Use oil or other corrosion protection since you will get wear and scratches and moisture making its way in to the ferrous base steel. Doesn't need to be much, just a light coating / wipe down after use.

    Clean as normal. I prefer using CLP on them light coat If you ever re-coat it it must be 100% clean and free of any oil.
