Karl should tell his wife that the great smell was "Sperm Oil".

Eightbore,
I was so surprised by her comment knowing her feelings about gun cleaning smells, I just let it go.

I always thought that "Eau de Federal Paper" would sell well...

That's why I hunt with paper shells, the smell soothes me when I miss a bird.

Speaking of odoriferous.....I kind of like the smell of NRA bullet lube when shooting cast bullets through my single shots.

I have a full bottle that was sold by A&F...pretty much smells like some sperm whale oil I have... whale oil is golden in color, may be old.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

There are essentially two types of Sperm whale oil. That which is used for lubrication of fine machinery, including guns, comes from head cavities & comes out as a liquid. The rest is rendered from the Blubber. This was primarily used as illuminating oil in the days of the sperm oils & is not suitable as a fine lubricant. That Golden colored oil may well be the rendered oil if so do not use it for fine lubrication. The head oil is also known as Cachalot oil which is I believe French for the sperm whale. I have a pre-1900 bottle, empty, made for the Weed Sewing machine company marked Pure Cachalot Oil.

It was said a large sperm whale could contain FM 350-00 gallons of the good stuff, from the head cavities. The lower laity rendered from the blubber was many times this amount.
