I have several swords from Windlass, and have found their product "rustblocker" works very well. When it dries there is somewhat of a visible (waxy-ish?) coating on polished metal but wiping it down removes it, but probably removes some of the protection as well. I hang my swords in their scabbards because they are unsettlingly sharp! What I have read about the "vapor phase corrosion technology" stuff, when you use it, it is better to keep the blades sheathed as it keeps the "vapor" around the blade, so to speak. All I know is the stuff really works well on my blades!
