Phoenix Handpan Oil Rust Protection- Test and Review.
Hi everybody and welcome back to our blog. Today I am going to tell you about a new oil, called Phoenix. This oil is 99% natural and researched for the express purpose to prevent any and all steel pans and handpans from rusting.
I’m happy to write a review about it today because it is an oil made in Italy by personal friends of mine, but obviously i will not be biased because of this, quite the contrary, my tests are always very impartial and don’t know friends nor foes.
That said, i immediately put Phoenix to the task in a comparative test with other products.
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- and, of course, the new Phoenix oil.
The first quality to appear is its enjoyable scent. It’s not greasy, but more importantly, a very small amount is enough to treat the entire surface of a handpan.
The second positive fact is that the product works also very well in terms of protection and duration on the surface. It enhances the pan with a natural and pleasant shining. It also feels much better than other products.
I tested the product on a non nitrited Meraki shell (Shellopan) and let it sit outside without any cover for 7 days, 4 days of which it was raining and were extremely humid.
The part that had been treated with Phoenix remained unaltered and didn’t develop any rust. Apart from that it remained shiny even after a week of weathering. A truly positive result.
Another positive factor of Phoenix is that it is a product apt to easily remove dirt off the instrument, without having to use any other cleaning products.
A small bottle contains 100ml, the perfect amount for air travel to be packed as carry-on. Nothing more to say, I will surely use only Phoenix in the future, i even took the liberty of offering it in my shop HERE.
Below there are a few pictures of the test carried out in November.
Special thx to my brother David Hauser
Big Hug and See you next time…
