Ballitsol Multi-Purpose Tool Oil -- 16.0 fl oz Liquid (non-aerosol) Can

The Original CLP - Cleans, Lubricates, Preserves

Ballistol can be used to lubricate, penetrate, clean, protect, and preserve tools, firearms, leather, knives, marine equipment, fishing gear, locks, wood, metal, rubber, and so much more.

Ballistol is an outstanding penetrating oil, creeps into the finest cracks, and loosens nuts and bolts. It can also be used as a cutting/boring oil.

One of the most astonishing features of Ballistol is its versatility. There are other products on the market, but none have the same wide range of applications and capabilities as Ballistol.

At the turn of the 20th century, the German Imperial Army began looking for a multipurpose oil that could be used to clean and maintain the metallic parts of a rifle, while also protecting its wooden stock and a soldieråä's leather gear. To develop this oil, the Army contracted with Friedrich Klever and his son Dr. Helmut Klever, a professor of chemistry at the Technical University of Karlsruhe. In 1904, Dr. Helmut Klever succeeded in producing the special compound, which he named "Ballistol" (from the words "ballistic" and "oleum", the Latin word for "oil"). It soon became obvious that this new "ballistic oil" had truly amazing capabilities, and in 1905 the Imperial Army tested and adopted Ballistol, which stayed in use until 1945. By then, however, word had spread and within a decade, hunters, boaters, hikers, and outdoorsmen in Germany, Austria and Switzerland had converted to using this new "miracle oil."

Ballistol is biodegradable, and neither its use nor its disposal will pollute our air or water. Its natural decomposition will not produce byproducts that are harmful to the environment. The aerosol propellant is a propane/butane blend that does not contain CFCs. In addition, Ballistol is non-carcinogenic and skin safe.

    This stuff will last you a long time as a little goes a long way. Not the best smelling stuff in the world though.

    Great for cleaning and maintaining

    Posted by Ross on Apr 4th 2022

    I have use this in a little oil dropper to clean and lubricate hundreds of tools, and it’s as if I haven’t even made a dent in the bottle. The screw-on cap was broken when it arrived, but thankfully there’s another plastic pull tab that needs to be removed to open, plus KC Tool thought ahead and shipped this in a sealed plastic bag.

    Unbelievably useful

    Got this as a tool lubricant, but have ended up using it for all kinds of things. I don't understand how it can work so well while being skin safe and not terrible for you, but whatever it is, it works

    Great Lube and Protectant

    Posted by Christopher Bellocq on Jul 25th 2017

    Be sure to use in a well ventilated area as the oil has a strong pungent smell almost like mineral spirits. Oil lubricates and protects well. A little Dab will do ya! This stuff spreads over metal like you wouldn't Believe! One drop. Rubber is a different story.
