    Just regular 30 Weight motor oil.

    Leather mounted on a arbor, or a pulley set up, can sharpen blades like the edges that a Barbers gets, The more the leather is used, the better it comes as it picks up some of the metal and basically buffs the edge on. I think this is much to do for a tiny blade and to me, personally, the time is worth more than just tossing the blade for a new one. Then again, that is also part of the hobby, so what ever floats your boat! :)
