With all the thousands of threads in this forum and the archives there hasn't been one that has addressed the various ways of cleaning the inside of the scabbard. The reason why I've I'm wondering is because of my BAS, my first. When I first got it, I followed the recommendation to use peanut oil as a protectant. The oil became gummy though, forcing me to switch to mineral oil. However, there must be some old peanut oil left in the scabbard because whenever I take out my BAS to re-oil it, I inevitably find discoloration in the same spot at the front of the blade. So how would you go about cleaning the inside of your scabbards? Any tricks?
