Oil for straight razor

I have a Ralf Aust 6/8” natural horn arriving soon and I am already thinking how to keep it in pristine condition.

I understand that it should be lightly oiled if not used for 3 or more days… is 3-in-1 multi-purpose oil OK?

 
Ballistol ( mineral oil) and vci paper.

smart thinking it is humid where I live, and Recently started using above system

micro corrosion leads to micro-pitting

I also like to use ballistol on my arks, ballistol water dawn mix. it is also a good fire arms lubrication.

I have a new Ralf Aust and a restored Mappin and Webb that I recently purchased. Oils I have in the house are Mineral, Castor, 3-in-1, and extra virgin olive. So, I saw mineral oil mentioned above. Will 3-in-1 also work?

It probably will. The reason I like mineral oil is that mine is in a sponge applicator bottle. It goes on quickly and without a mess.
